Stein compiled an outstanding record in St. Louis, where few challenged his supremacy as a match game bowler in the 1920s and 30s. He was one of the first to roll three 1,900 all-events totals in the USBC Open Championships, winning the 1929 crown with 1,974. Stein won the National Match Game title in 1934 by defeating Joe Miller of Buffalo, then lost it the following year to Hank Marino.
