Though lesser remembered than the Waner brothers, Paul and Lloyd, who are both in the Hall of Fame, the Meusel brothers in their primes, swung similarly sweet. Irish Meusel hit .310 lifetime with 1521 hits and was a standout for the New York Giants in the 1920s. He had perhaps his finest season in 1921 when he hit .343 with 14 home runs and 87 RBI and helped the Giants prevail over the Yankees in the World Series by hitting .345 in eight games. His younger brother Bob Meusel managed a .309 clip with 1693 hits and was part of the Murderers Row Yankees. In 1925, when teammate Babe Ruth played just 98 games, Bob Meusel led the American League with 33 home runs and 138 RBI.

The offered 6” by 7-3/4” photo of the Meusel brothers was captured during their face-off in the 1921 World Series at the Polo Grounds. Reverse shows Kadel & Herbert News Service stamp, date stamp “OCT 10 – 1921” and written subject identification. NM condition.
