CARL ERSKINE The right-handed pitcher who spent his entire career with the Dodgers signed this index card in black ink Signature: "Carl Erskine / Dodgers 1948-1959”. 5x3 index card. Carl Erskine (b. 1926) pitched in his first game for the Brooklyn Dodgers on July 25, 1948, and pitched for the Dodgers until he retired after the 1959 season. Erskine, who teamed up 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 1953 World Series set a Series record that stood for 14 years. He threw two no-hitters: on June 19, 1952 against the Cubs, and on May 12, 1956 against the Giants. In 1955, he won the World Series with the Dodgers. Lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
