Baseball inscribed and signed: "To Rob -/Good luck/Jimmy Piersall 1950-1958", "Gaylord Perry", "Frank Malzone/No. 11". Rawlings Official American League Baseball, Bobby Brown, President. Outfielder JIMMY PIERSALL played for the Boston Red Sox (1950-1958), Cleveland Indians (1959-1961), Washington Senators (1962-1963), New York Mets (1963), and Los Angeles/California Angels (1963-1967). Piersall's early career was interrupted by a nervous breakdown, recounted in Piersall's book, Fear Strikes Out, which was later made into a movie starring Tony Perkins. His career was characterized by numerous zany stunts, including hiding behind the monuments at Yankee Stadium while with the Indians and running backward around the bases (in the correct order) after hitting his 100th career homer as a Met on June 23, 1963. Piersall was a broadcaster for the White Sox, eventually fired for - you guessed it - too many controversial remarks. Piersall was a good hitter, an exceptional centerfielder, and a two-time All-Star. GAYLORD PERRY pitched for 8 Major League teams (1962-1983). He won the AL Cy Young Award in 1972 and the NL Cy Young Award in 1978, becoming the first pitcher to win the Cy Young Award in both leagues. In 22 years, Perry won 314 games, striking out 3,534 batters. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1991.Perry was renowned for throwing the illegal spitball, and equally good at getting away with it. FRANK MALZONE, a third baseman, played in the majors from 1955 to 1966, mostly with the Boston Red Sox. An eight-time All-Star and three-time Golden Glove, he was the first third baseman to receive a Golden Glove when the prize was started in 1957. Malzone placed in the top 10 in the American League for runs twice, for hits, doubles and RBIs four times and for total bases thrice. In 1957 he tied an American League record by recording 10 assists in one game. Fine condition.
