Hoyt Wilhelm signs a baseball in blue ink on the sweet spot.
Baseball signed: "Hoyt Wilhelm". Official Rawlings National League baseball, Charles S. Feeney, President. Hoyt Wilhelm (1923-2002) didn't make his major league debut until the age of 28, but he got off to a fast start by hitting a home run in his first at-bat. Twenty years and a then-record 1,069 games later, he never hit another home run; but it was on the mound that he distinguished himself as the game's premier reliever for the New York Giants (1952-1956), Cleveland Indians (1957-1958), St. Louis Cardinals (1957), Baltimore Orioles (1958-1962), Chicago White Sox (1963-1968), California Angels (1969), Atlanta Braves (1969-1971), Chicago Cubs (1970), and Los Angeles Dodgers (1971-1972). The knuckleballer won 143 games, including a record 124 out of the bullpen. In a rare start for the Orioles in 1958, he no-hit the Yankees. In 1985, Wilhelm became the first relief pitcher to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Light soiling. Fine condition.
