JOHN WILLIAMS and MAJOR LEAGUE BALLPLAYERS
The composer/conductor signs one side of a card, signed on verso by 6 baseball stars.
Autograph Note signed: "Paul -/Best Wishes/John Williams", 5x8 album page, and on verso "Rick Sutcliffe", "Julio Franco", Lary Sorensen", "Ron Hassey" and 2 unidentified signatures. Composer JOHN WILLIAMS (b. 1932), nominated for 41 Academy Awards since 1968, won five. Among his dozens of movie scores are Jaws, Superman, Star Wars, E.T., Raiders of the Lost Ark, Schindler's List, Saving Private Ryan and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. He was conductor of the Boston Pops Orchestra from 1980 to 1995. RICK SUTCLIFFE (b. 1956) The 6'7" 215-lb "Red Baron" (from his red hair) followed in a long line of star Dodger rookies, but by 1980 he was exiled to the Los Angeles bullpen. Rescued by Cleveland, Sutcliffe led the AL in ERA in 1982. By 1984, unhappy playing with a non-contender, he was ready to become a free agent when he was dealt to the Cubs. After a 4-5 start in Cleveland, Sutcliffe went 16-1 for Chicago to earn a unanimous vote as NL Cy Young Award winner, the first winner ever to split a season between the AL and NL. JULIO FRANCO, born in the Dominican Republic in 1958, had a Major League career spanning a quarter century (1982-2007), and that doesn't count seasons of professional baseball in Japan, Korea, Mexico and the Dominican Winter League. He played for eight teams, but principally the Cleveland Indians (8 years), Atlanta Braves (6) and Texas Rangers (5). He played in the postseason for Cleveland, Atlanta (3 times) and the New York Mets. The versatile infielder (first, second and short) was named to three All-Star Games. In 2006, he became at age 47 the oldest player ever to hit a home run in the Major Leagues. LARY SORENSEN (b. 1955) pitched 11 seasons for 7 Major League teams (1977-1988), the best years coming with the Milwaukee Brewers early in his career: 18 wins and an All-Star berth in 1978 and 15 more in 1979. Cocaine and alcohol abuse shortened his career, cost him his job as a broadcaster, and landed him in prison after multiple DUI convictions. After prison he worked at McDonald's. Catcher RON HASSEY (b. 1953) played for 7 Major League teams (1978-1991), principally the Cleveland Indians (1978-1984) and Oakland A's (1988-1990, three consecutive World Series appearances and a championship in 1989). He is the Major Leaguer to have caught two perfect games: Ron Barker's for the Indians (1981) and Dennis Martinez's for the Montreal Expos (1991). After his playing days Hassey coached for three Major League teams, and as of 2012 is the manager of the AAA-level New Orleans Zephyrs. Toned at edges. Lightly creased. Lightly worn. Lightly frayed at left edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
