No-Hitter and 300 Win Club Signed Collection (3)
Starting Bid - $200.00 , Sold For - $1,175.00
Collection of three substantial multi-signed items (two framed display pieces and a multi-signed ball) commemorating the achievements of pitchers who have either thrown a no-hitter or won 300 games. 1) Large 16 x 20-inch color photo of Nolan Ryan on the occasion of his seventh career no-hitter, signed by Ryan and twenty-five other pitchers who have tossed a no-hitter during their Major League careers: Tommy Greene, Milt Pappas, Steve Busby, Dennis Martinez, Jim Abbott, Jerry Reuss, Clyde Wright, Len Barker, Dock Ellis, Mike Witt, Bob Forsch, Jim Bibby, Joe Horlen, Burt Hooten, Juan Marichal, Charlie Lea, Tom Browning, Jim Palmer, Dick Bosman, Gaylord Perry, Andy Hawkins, Ed Halicki, Joe Cowley, Sonny Siebert, and John Montefusco. Ryan has signed the print in blue Sharpie, while all of the others have signed it in silver paint pen (all grading "10"). Ideally, each pitcher has also provided the date of his respective no-hitter below his name. Ex-Mt in appearance, with a few tiny surface wrinkles. Framed to total dimensions of 18 x 22 inches. 2) Framed display piece featuring a 300 Win Card, signed by ten members of the 300 Win Club, matted together with a Nolan Ryan signed Gateway cachet. The card, issued in 1990 on the occasion of Ryan's 300th win, features a photo of Ryan and lists the names of all of the twenty 300 game winners at the time. It has been signed in gold paint pen by Ryan, Niekro, Perry, Seaver, Wynn, Spahn, Carlton, and Sutton. The piece has also been signed by Roger Clemens and Greg Maddux, each of whom joined the 300 Win Club a few years ago. The cachet, postmarked 4/19/93, was issued on the occasion of Ryan's record 27th season in the Majors and has been signed in blue ink ("10") by Ryan on the front. The card (8.25 x 9.75 inches) displays a few light creases and is in Very Good to Excellent condition. The cachet (6.25 x 3.5 inches) is in Excellent to Mint condition. Framed to total dimensions of 11.5 x 16.5 inches. 3) Official Major League (Selig) ball signed in blue ink ("10") by Nolan Ryan (sweet spot) and each of the catchers who caught one of his record seven no-hitters: Jeff Torborg, Art Kusnyer, Tom Egan, Ellie Rodriguez, Alan Ashby, John Russell, and Mike Stanley. The ball is hand numbered "146/347" on a side panel. Mt. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $1,175.00
