1934 Goudey Baseball Card #16 Joe Kuhel D.1984 Signed PSA/DNA

Joe Kuhel (D. 1984) was an American professional baseball player and manager. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, he was a first baseman who played in the Major Leagues from 1930–46 for the Washington Senators (1930–37; 1944–46) and Chicago White Sox (1938–43; 1946–47). He batted and threw left-handed, stood 6 feet (1.8 m) tall and weighed 180 pounds (82 kg). Following his playing career, Kuhel managed the Senators (1948–49). In an 18-season career, Kuhel was a .277 hitter with 131 home runs and 1,049 RBI in 2,104 games played. Defensively, he posted a career .992 fielding percentage.

Kuhel was the best defensive first baseman in the American League during the 1930s, but also was an inconsistent player who struggled with injuries most of his career. Hampered by playing in Griffith Stadium most of his career, his power numbers were never as good as they may have been in a more favorable park for long-ball hitters.

Offered is a nicely handled example of his baseball card from the legendary 1934 Goudey series, authenticated and encapsulated by PSA/DNA.  Signed across the front in black steel tipped pen.  Card would grade G-VG. Signature is outstanding!
