JACK MORRIS - COMMEMORATIVE ENVELOPE SIGNED - HFSID 284475
Signed commemorative envelope, shown pitching for his third win in the "Cinderella Series" of 1991
Commemorative Envelope signed: Jack Morris", 6½x3½. Pictured on a special cover honoring Game Seven of the 1991 World Series, postmarked Metrodome Station, Minneapolis, Minnesota, October 27, 1991 (the date and place of the game), 29-cent US flag stamp affixed. The 1991 World Series has been justly called the "Cinderella Series." No team finishing in last place one season and every won the World Series the next year. In 1990, both the Atlanta Braves and the Minnesota Twins finished in the cellar. In 1991, the Twins beat the Braves in a 7-game World Series which ESPN has called the greatest World Series ever. Throwing lethal fastballs, sliders and splitters, Jack Morris was the winningest pitcher of the 1980s. Ace of the Detroit Tiger staff for most of his career (1977-1990), Morris lead the team in wins eight years in a row. He pitched a no-hitter for the 1984 Tigers, World Series winners and one of the greatest baseball teams ever. (That year he won 19 regular season games and three more in the postseason.) The 5-time All-Star played his final seasons with other clubs, but these seasons were more than just postscripts. He helped the Minnesota Twins to the World Championship in 1991, and did the same for the Toronto Blue Jays in 1992, making Morris perhaps the least popular man in Atlanta since General Sherman. Lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
