Charlie Keller (D. 1990) was a left fielder in Major League Baseball. From 1939 through 1952, Keller played for the New York Yankees (1939–43, 1945–49, 1952) and Detroit Tigers (1950–51). In a 13-season career, Keller was a .286 hitter with 189 home runs and 760 RBI in 1170 games. A five-time All-Star selection, he compiled a career .410 on-base percentage and a .518 slugging average for a combined .928 OPS. In his four World Series appearances, he batted .306 with five home runs, and 18 RBI in 19 games. Keller led the American League in bases on balls twice (1940 and 1943), batting strikeouts once (1946), and On-base plus slugging percentage once (1943). He did, at one time, have the 7th highest career park-adjusted offensive winning percentage of qualified outfielders at .762. Babe Ruth tops the list at .865. Although he was sometimes overlooked by some due to the popularity of fellow outfielder and superstar, Joe DiMaggio, according to Bill James' Historical Baseball Abstract, Keller had two seasons (1941, 1946) when he was a more valuable player than DiMaggio.

Offered is an OAL (Bobby Brown - Haiti) ball single-signed in blue ballpoint ink on the sweet spot. Gorgeous! Collins”
