Dan Brouthers
(b. May 8, 1879 - d. August 2, 1932)
Baseball's premier 19th century slugger, Brouthers toiled for nine different clubs, in three different major leagues, for 21 seasons. He was the first man to win back-to-back batting titles, 1882 and 1883. Brouthers batted over .300 in 16 consecutive seasons, reaching .374 in 1883.

Comments: The first portrait I bought for Brouthers was a tribute card, a raw 1990 Target Dodgers, in February, 2003. In March, 2003 I replaced it with another tribute card - a PSA 8 1981 Detroit News also won via eBay. At the 2007 National Sports Collector's Convention in Cleveland I purchased an item issued during Brouthers career, this SGC 10 Mayo Cut Plug card. There's actually another card I'd prefer for Brouthers but I have not been able to get my hands on an example. I'm seeking a N526 Diamond S to accompany the N526 Number 7 Cigars Kelly I own. There was a Lot which included the Brouthers in the Nov, 2010 Legendary Auction but I didn't win. Keeping my fingers crossed for another opportunity…
