TOMMY BYRNE Printed Card signed in ink, shown pitching for the Yankees Printed Art signed in ink: "Tommy Byrne". Color, 3¼x5 heavy card. Printed caption. As a young Yankee pitcher, Byrne (1919-2007) was notorious for his wildness. He led the league in walks allowed three years in a row (1949-1951), and led in hit batsmen five times. He once hit a batter waiting in the on deck circle. Even though he had won 15 games in back to back seasons (1950-1951), the Yankees exiled him to a 3-year tour with the St. Louis Browns, Chicago White Sox and Washington Senators. He returned to the Yankees in 1954, having mastered his control, and went 16-5 the following year. Byrne pitched in six World Series games over 4 seasons, and was the losing pitcher in Game 7 of the 1955 Series, the first ever won by the Brooklyn Dodgers. Byrne was Mayor of Wake Forest, North Carolina for 14 years (1973-1987). Fine condition. Previously authenticated by JSA.
