Official Rawlings American League baseball, Bobby Brown, President. Ball contains 15 signatures in all. KENT TEKULVE (b. 1947) debuted with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1974 and pitched for the team until 1985, when he went to the Philadelphia Phillies. He finished his career in 1989 in Cincinnati. An All-Star in 1980, "Teke" had his best years in 1978 and 1979, when he finished fifth in NL for the Cy Young voting during both seasons. He was also a contender for MVP in 1979, ranking eighth. From 1988 to 1999, he held the all-time Major League record for most relief appearances. Anyone who thinks that BOBBY BONDS (1946-2003) is merely the father of Barry Bonds needs to brush up on their baseball history. A 3-time All-Star and 3-time Gold Glove-winner, Bonds became the first player to hit 30 home runs and steal 30 bases in the same season. He also was the first of only two players to hit over 400 homers and steal over 300 bases in his career, a feat matched only by his son. After seven seasons as a San Francisco Giant (1968-1974), Bobby played for 7 more clubs through 1981. Unlike Barry, who was dogged by controversy during and after his playing days, Bobby Bonds was popular every place he played. He spent 23 seasons as a Giants player, coach, scout and front office official. JOE RUDI (b. 1946) played 16 Major League seasons (1967-1982), but is best remembered as a left fielder on three consecutive World Champion Oakland A's teams (1972-1974). A 3-time All-Star and 3-time Gold Glove-winner, he led the AL in hits and triples in 1972 and in doubles in 1974. A star pitcher with two teams in the Bay Area (Oakland and San Francisco), VIDA BLUE (b. 1949) won both the American League Cy Young Award and Most Valuable Player in 1971. In that year he went 24-8 for the A's, with a league-leading 1.82 ERA and 8 shutouts, plus 301 strikeouts. His decade-long career stretched from 1969 to 1986, and Blue won a total of 209 games. During 15 Major League seasons (1973-1987), BILL MADLOCK (b. 1951), primarily a third baseman, led the National League in hitting four times (1975-1976, 1981, 1983). He notably played for the Pirates during their World Series victory of 1979. A three-time All-Star, he was the only right-handed hitter to lead the NL in hitting between 1971 and 1989. Surrounded by superstars, BERT CAMPANERIS (b. 1942) was a key contributor to great Oakland teams with his competitive spirit and superb play. "Campy" became one of baseball's all-time top base thieves, stealing 649 bases to rank seventh all-time on his retirement and leading the AL six times, including his first four full seasons (1965-68). He was voted All-Star in 1968, 1972-75 and 1977. The most durable player of his era, STEVE GARVEY (b. 1948) played a NL-record 1,207 consecutive games. Garvey exploded as a NL star in 1974. He was elected to the All-Star team as a write-in candidate that year, and was voted MVP of the game. Garvey's name would not be left off the All-Star ballot again, and he was elected as a starter the next six years. In 1978, he became the first player to receive more than four million All-Star votes, and he was named MVP of the game that year as well. In ten All-Star games he hit .393, and his slugging average of .955 is the highest of any player with more than 20 at-bats. The winner of four Gold Gloves, Garvey retired with a .996 fielding average. BILL CAMPBELL (b. 1948), a relief specialist, also had a long big league career (1973-1987). With the Minnesota Twins in 1976 he set an AL record for wins by a reliever (17). Moving to Boston as a free agent the following year, he won his second consecutive Fireman of the Year award from The Sporting News. FERGUSON JENKINS (b. 1942) won 284 games, including 6 consecutive seasons with the Chicago Cubs in which he won 20 or more games while striking out 200 or more. The National League Cy Young winner in 1971, he led the league in wins twice, made the All-Star team three times, and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1991. Lightly toned. Several small stains and scuffs. Otherwise, fine condition.
