Autograph Sentiment on Printed Card Signed in Ink: "Best Wishes/Virgil Trucks", 5x3 card with two baseball cachets at left & right. While with the Tigers in 1952, Virgil Trucks (1917-2013) tossed a pair of no-hitters against the Senators and the Yankees, joining such luminaries as Johnny Vander Meer, Allie Reynolds, and Nolan Ryan as the only pitchers to accomplish this feat in a single season.The burly right-hander also had four no-hitters in the minors and a near-miss with the White Sox in 1954. The control pitcher returned from military service in 1945 and appeared in the World Series against the Cubs, winning 4-1. He had appeared in only one game during the regular season. After a decade in Detroit, Trucks arrived in Chicago via St. Louis in 1954. He recorded eight straight victories en route to his first and only 20-victory season that year. Over the course of his 17-season career as a player, Trucks totaled 177 wins, 1,534 strikeouts, and one World Series win (1945). After he retired from the field, he became a coach with the Pittsburgh Pirates where he won a second World Series Championship in 1960. Fine condition.
