An astounding group of thirteen Hall of Fame pitchers sign a Rawlings Official National League baseball (White).
Baseball signed: "Bob Feller/3-3-91", "Bob Gibson", "Gaylord Perry", "Jim Palmer/HOF 1990", "Steve Carlton/HOF 94", "Phil Niekro", "Rollie Fingers", "Whitey Ford", "Hoyt Wilhelm", "Warren Spahn", "Early Wynn", "Robin Roberts" and "Ferguson Jenkins". Rawlings Official National League baseball, William D. White, President. Some of the greatest players to ever throw a pitch have signed this ball. All Hall of Famers, the group accumulated thirteen Cy Young Awards between them and terrorized opposing batters across six decades. BOB FELLER (1918-2010), born in Van Meter, Iowa in 1918, is the most winning pitcher in Cleveland Indians history and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1962. Though regarded as the fastest pitcher of his day, with a sizzling fastball, "Rapid Robert" attributed his strikeout records to his curve and slider. Feller set a major league record with 208 walks and led the American League in both strikeouts and wins from 1939 to 1941. He was voted All-Star from 1938 to 1941, from 1946 to 1948 and in 1950. BOB GIBSON (1935-2020) holds the major league record for lowest single-season ERA of 1.12 in 1968, the year he was the National League's Most Valuable Player and Cy Young Award winner. He also won the Cy Young Award in 1970. In his 17-year career, all with the St. Louis Cardinals, Gibson won 251 games including 56 shutouts. He was the first pitcher to strike out at least 200 batters in nine seasons and, in 1974, became the second pitcher in major league history to strike out at least 3,000 batters in a career (he joined Walter Johnson, who first notched 3,000 Ks way back in 1923!). Gibson was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1981, his first year of eligibility. GAYLORD PERRY pitched for 8 Major League teams (1962-1983). He won the AL Cy Young Award in 1972 and the NL Cy Young Award in 1978, becoming the first pitcher to win the Cy Young Award in both leagues. In 22 years, Perry won 314 games, striking out 3,534 batters. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1991. Perry was renowned for throwing the illegal spitball, and equally good at getting away with it. Pitching his entire career for the Orioles (1965-1984), JIM PALMER was a 20-game winner in eight of the nine seasons between 1970 and 1978. Three-time winner of the Cy Young Award, he appeared in six World Series and six All Star games for the Baltimore Orioles. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1990. STEVE CARLTON (b. 1944) won four Cy Young awards (1972, 1977, 1980, 1982) while pitching for the Phillies, a record that stood until 1988, when Roger Clemens notched his fifth. In 1972, Carlton won the pitching Triple Crown and became the second National League pitcher to top 300 wins. His #32 was retired by the Phillies in 1989. He was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1994, his first year of eligibility. PHIL NIEKRO pitched for the Braves (1964-1983), Yankees (1984-1985), Indians (1986-1987), Blue Jays (1987) and Braves again (1987), compiling a 318-274 record with 3,342 strikeouts. He was 48 when he retired. Niekro was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1997. ROLLIE FINGERS played for the Oakland Athletics from 1968 to 1976. The pitcher also played for the San Diego Padres (1977-1980) and the Milwaukee Brewers (1981-1985) during his 17-year major league career. Fingers, who was known for his sharp slider, notched 341 career saves and appeared in 16 World Series games. In 1981, he won both the American League MVP and Cy Young Award. Fingers was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1992. EDWARD "WHITEY" FORD (1928-2020, HOF 1974) was the "money pitcher" on the great Yankee teams of the 1950s and early 1960s, called "Chairman of the Board". The wily southpaw's lifetime record of 236-106 gives him the best winning percentage (.690) of any 20th century pitcher. He paced the American League in victories three times, and in ERA and shutouts twice. The 1961 Cy Young Award winner still holds many World Series records, including 10 wins and 94 strikeouts, once pitching 33 consecutive scoreless innings in the Fall Classic. Whitey Ford has the most career wins in the history of the New York Yankees with 236. At the time of his retirement in 1972, knuckle balling master reliever HOYT WILHELM had appeared in more games (1,070) than any pitcher in major league history, with a late-starting career that still spanned 21 years. He established records for relief wins (123), games pitched in relief (1,018), games finished by a pitcher (651), and innings pitched in relief (1,870). His 227 saves place him among the all-time leaders. Fittingly, he was the first relief pitcher elected to the Hall of Fame, and the first pitcher inducted with fewer than 150 career wins. Wilhelm was the only rookie to win an E.R.A. title. WARREN SPAHN (1921-2003) won 363 major league games, more games than any lefthander in baseball history. He was the mainstay of the Boston/Milwaukee Braves' pitching staff for two decades. Spahn won 20 games a ML record-tying 13 times, pitched two no-hitters, and led the NL in strikeouts four consecutive years. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1973. The vanishing breed of scowling, intimidating pitchers is best typified by Hall of Famer and 300-game-winner EARLY WYNN (1920-1999). He was thirty-nine-years old when he won the Cy Young Award as he led the 1959 White Sox to the World Series. Wynn had a 300-244 lifetime record in his 23-year career, during which he pitched for the Washington Senators (1939-1948), Cleveland Indians (1949-1957) and White Sox (1958-1962). ROBIN ROBERTS (1926-2010) ranks as the winningest right hander in Phillies history. In his first full season, Roberts won 15 games. In 1950, he helped pitch the Phillies to their first pennant in 35 years, going 20-11. When he won his 20th on the final day of the season at Brooklyn, in a pennant-deciding, 10-inning game, he became the Phillies' first 20-game-winner since Grover Alexander in 1917. He was an All Star 1950-1956 and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1976. FERGUSON JENKINS (born in Canada in 1942) won 284 games, including 6 consecutive seasons with the Chicago Cubs in which he won 20 or more games while striking out 200 or more. National League Cy Young winner in 1971, he led the league in wins twice, made the All-Star team twice, and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1991. Two hologram stickers affixed below William D. White facsimile signature. Fine condition.
