1930s Baseball Signatures - Bill Sherdel
Sherdel played in two World Series, beating the Yankees in 1926 with the Cardinals and then losing to the Yankees again with the Cardinals in 1928. He is the first World Series winner that I have discovered on this ball.
He appeared on 9 Hall of Fame ballots but never got more than 0.8% of the vote. He does have a Hall of Fame connection, though. He was traded, along with Fred Frankhouse to the Boston Bracves from the Cardinals for Hall of Famer Burleigh Grimes.
Sherdel ties into Lance Richbourg and Randy Moore in that he was on the same Braves team that they were on for part of 1930 and then the full 1931 season. It is looking more and more that this ball could have been signed in 1931.
