ABOUT THIS COLLECTIBLE
Pitcher Dennis Eckersley blazed a unique path to Hall of Fame success. During the first half of his 24-year big league career, "Eck" won over 150 games primarily as a starter, including a stint with the Red Sox and a no-hitter in 1977 (a memorable 12-strikeout performance against the California Angels). Over his final 12 years, he saved nearly 400 games, leading his hometown Oakland A's to four American League West titles, three American League Championships and one World Series victory in 1989. His most impressive season was 1992 when Eck started off the season with a major-league record 36 consecutive saves. By the end of that season, Eckersley had tallied 51 saves. Even more impressive, he only walked 11 batters - six intentionally - while striking out 93. A baseball Hall of Fame inductee in 2004, Dennis will always be an Oakland fan favorite thanks not only to his success on the mound but his distinctive long hair and mustache. Dennis hand-signed this official MLB baseball right on the sweet spot. The ball is also available with a customized Oakland A's case that highlights Eck's Cy Young and MVP Awards, along with his World Series Championship. OR YOU CAN CREATE YOUR OWN PLATE! Our quality cases include black or mahogany-colored wood base, mirrored bottom, UV-protective glass and ball stand. A great collectible from a very popular Athletic and the perfect gift for any longtime A's fan.
