Printed Art signed: "Roger Craig". C. 10x8 card published by Historic Limited Editions from artwork by Susan Rini. In 1986, "Sports Illustrated" called Roger Craig "the acknowledged maestro of the split-fingered fastball." In 1985, he taught the split-finger to the Astros' Mike Scott, who won the 1986 Cy Young award. Craig (1930-2023) had previously managed the 1978-79 Padres and served as a scout and pitching coach, notably in Detroit, where he taught Jack Morris the split-finger. As a manager, Craig was noted for one-run tactics and for calling lots of pitchouts. He won the NL West title in 1987 and the NL pennant in 1989. During his earlier years, he pitched for the Brooklyn Dodgers (1955-1956), LA Dodgers, NY Mets and St. Louis Cardinals. Fine condition.
