BOB WELCH Black and white photo (3½x5) signed by the 1990 Cy Young winner Photograph Signed: "Bob Welch". B/w, 3½x5. Bob Welch (1956-2014) had already attracted widespread attention as a 21-year-old rookie; he threw nothing but fastballs to strike out Reggie Jackson in the ninth inning to save a 4-3 Dodger win in Game Two of the 1978 World Series. Welch, who pitched for the Los Angeles Dodgers (1978-1987) and Oakland Athletics (1988-1994), played in a total of four World Series. He had his best year in 1990 (27-6), when he won the American League Cy Young Award. That same year he was among the Top 10 in the AL MVP voting and was even named an All-Star. Welch was also an All-Star in 1980, and was among the top 10 Cy Young Award vote-getters in 1983 and 1987. After his playing career ended, Welch became an activist for alcohol abuse awareness. He describes his own struggles with addiction in Five O'Clock Comes Early: A Ballplayer's Battle With Alcoholism (1982). Slightly chipped at lower margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
