ABOUT THIS COLLECTIBLE
Bob Feller's blazing fastball set the standard against which all of his successors have been judged. "Rapid Robert," recently deceased, spent his 18-year career in Cleveland, amassing 266 victories and 2,581 strikeouts, while leading the league in strikeouts seven times. Fresh from high school, Feller amazingly struck out 15 batters in his first big league start, a 4-1 victory over the St. Louis Browns on August 25, 1936. He authored three no-hitters and shares the major league record with 12 one-hitters. Many argue that Feller was the fastest pitcher of all-time, surpassing even Nolan Ryan in velocity. This vintage photograph of Feller is a classic - never was his famous high leg-kick better captured. Now deceased, Bob hand-signed this beauty before his death with the rare dual-inscriptions of "HOF 1962" (his Hall of Fame Class) and "107.9 mph". That inscription and the plate on the display commemorate Feller's mythical 107.9 mph Fastball, a speed Feller claimed he was clocked at in a demonstration at Griffith Stadium in 1946. OR YOU CAN CREATE YOUR OWN PLATE! Sports Gallery Quality (and beautifully) framed with wood moulding, UV-protective glass and classic deluxe white matting w/ gold trim, this is a classic collectible...and Sports Art...that would make a great gift for any fan of baseball history.
