Eight years after making his professional debut as an infielder-outfielder, Hall of Famer Bob Lemon realized his destiny as a pitcher. At the age of 25, he embarked on a major league pitching career that would include seven 20-win seasons over a nine-year span. The right-handed ace became a key factor in Cleveland's 1948 and 1954 pennant drives, posting records of 20-14 and 23-7, respectively. After his playing days, Lemon became a successful manager, leading the Yankees to the World Championship in 1978.
The offered ball is a Bobby Brown official A.L. baseball. The ball is in nice shape with a couple of very light toning spots present on the back side of one of the side panels which does not interfere with the autograph. Lemon also inscribed his Hall of Fame year of induction.
