JIM BOUTON The MLB pitcher signs his name in black felt tip on a printed card Printed card signed: "J Bouton", in black felt tip, 5x3. Jim Bouton (1939-2019) first gained notice as an integral member of the NY Yankee staff in the final three seasons (1962-64) of the four-decade New York dynasty. He was 7-7 as a rookie, then had an All-Star season in 1963. But the Yankee dynasty and Bouton's career both came crashing down in 1965. He blew out his arm and the New York offense failed. He doggedly pitched through pain for two seasons, going 4-15, 4.82 in '65 and 3-8, 2.69 in 1966, the year the Yankees fell to last place. Bouton spent most of the rest of his career in the bullpen, and began to throw a knuckleball in 1968. He retired after the 1970 season and spent some time as a TV sports reporter in New York. Corners slightly worn. Pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso. Fine condition.
