Sale Price $144.00
Color publicity photograph of Hoyt Wilhelm in his New York Giants uniform preparing to pitch, matted to a size of 12x14.
Photograph signed: "Hoyt Wilhelm". Color, 8x10, matted to an overall size of 12x14. At the time of his retirement in 1972, knuckleballing master reliever Hoyt Wilhelm (1922-2002) had appeared in more games (1,070) than any pitcher in major league history, with a late-starting career that still spanned 21 years. He established records for relief wins (123), games pitched in relief (1,018), games finished by a pitcher (651), and innings pitched in relief (1,870). His 227 saves place him among the all-time leaders. Fittingly, he was the first relief pitcher elected to the Hall of Fame,and the first pitcher inducted with fewer than 150 career wins. Wilhelm was the only rookie to win an E.R.A. title. Fine condition. Matted in Gallery of History style.
