Signed by the famous World Series Yankee pitcher. 1935 Allstar Winning Pitcher. Produced the first RBI in All-Star history.

In 1935, he paved the way for others such as Yogi Berra.

Signature is with a blue ball point pen on an official Ralph Kener Major League Baseball.

Remembered mainly for his colorful personality, Lefty Gomez was also one of baseball's greatest winners, ranking third in Yankee history in regular-season wins with 189. Gomez threw a shutout in 1941 while issuing 11 walks, the most walks ever allowed in a shutout. And though a notoriously poor hitter, he produced the first RBI in All-Star history and singled home the winning run in the 1937 World Series clincher. Gomez pitched for the Yankees (1930-1942) and Senators (1943 - appearing in one game only). The Hall of Fame Yankees pitcher had a 189-102 lifetime won-loss record, topping 20 wins four times.

Lefty's famous quote: I'd rather be lucky than good.
