Bob Feller's blazing fastball set the standard against which all of his successors have been judged. "Rapid Robert" spent his entire 18-year career with Cleveland, amassing 266 victories and 2,581 strikeouts, while leading the league in strikeouts seven times. He missed nearly four full seasons in his prime serving his country during World War II, for which he was decorated with five campaign ribbons studded with eight battle stars. Fresh from high school, Feller struck out 17 Athletics in 1936. The fireballer authored three no-hitters and 12 one-hitters while winning 20 or more games six times. He was also an eight-time All-Star who, in 1962, was a first-ballot National Baseball Hall of Fame inductee. Bob Feller has hand signed this official MLB baseball and added the inscription, "Triple Crown 1940." A Steiner Sports Certificate of Authenticity is included.
