CARL ERSKINE The pitcher signs a short sentiment at the bottom of a letter, requesting his photograph, from the U.S. Postal Service in Deer Park, New York. Autograph Sentiment signed: "Thanks for your interest/Carl Erskine", 1 page, 8½x11. Signed on the lower margin of a typed letter from the U.S. Postal Service in Deer Park, New York. In part: "I would like to have a picture so that I can display them for the 1991 baseball season … for our customers and employees to enjoy … I would greatly appreciate your participation in this program" Erskine pitched his first game for the Brooklyn Dodgers on July 25, 1948, and pitched for the Dodgers until he retired after the 1959 season as a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Erskine, who teamed with Don Newcombe to anchor the pitching staff for the powerful post-WWII Brooklyn teams, won 61% of his decisions in 12 years with the Dodgers. The 5'10" right-hander injured his shoulder during his rookie season and pitched with pain most of his career. Because he couldn't throw a lot between starts, he never developed any specialty pitches. He remained a fastball/curveball/changeup pitcher who was able to change speeds on the curve. "Oisk" went 20-6 in 1953 to lead NL pitchers in winning percentage (.769). His 14 strikeouts as the winner of Game Three of the '53 WS set a Series record that stood for 14 years. He had two no-hitters: on June 19, 1952 against the Cubs, and on May 12, 1956 against the Giants. Normal mailing folds. Slightly creased. Slightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
