1930s Signed Baseball Signature - Lance Richbourg
The first name I will profile is at the bottom of the panel pictured above, Lance Richbourg.
Richbourg (b. 1897 - 1975) played in the majors from 1921, 1924 and 1927 to 1932 for the Phillies (1921), Senators (1924), Braves (1927 to 1931) and Cubs (1932). He had 806 hits, 13 home runs and a .308 career batting average. He had 206 hits and a .337 batting average in 1928 with the Boston Braves. Not too bad. He finished 15th in the NL MVP voting in the 1928 season.
Richbourg coached the University of Florida baseball team in 1922 and 1923 between stints in the majors compiling a record of 39-21.
