20x16 poster picturing the four Hall of Fame inductees of 1962, signed by Feller.
Printed Art signed in ink: "Bob Feller". Color, 20x16. Also signed (in pencil): "Don Sprague" (the artist). Close-up portraits of the four players inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1962: Jackie Robinson, Bill McKechnie, Edd Roush, and of course Feller. Bob Feller (1918-2010) has the most wins of any pitcher in Cleveland Indians history. In 1962 "Rapid Robert" became the first pitcher since charter member Walter Johnson to be elected to the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility. Though regarded as the fastest pitcher of his day, he himself attributed his strikeout records to his curve and slider. Feller set a ML record with 208 walks and led the AL in both strikeouts and wins from 1939 to 1941. The first Major Leaguer to volunteer for military service after Pearl Harbor, Feller lost four seasons to the war. He won 25 games in his last pre-war season, and 26 in his first year back, so he might have added another 100 victories to his already impressive career total of 266. He was voted All-Star in 1938-41, 1946-48 and in 1950. Corners lightly creased. Otherwise fine condition.
