Ted Lyons didn't throw a single inning in the minor leagues before making his debut with the Chicago White Sox in 1923. A true workhorse throughout his career, Lyons averaged 262 innings pitched per season - in 1942 (his final full season) the 41-year old righty started and completed twenty games to the tune of a 2.10 ERA before joining the Marine Corps. and serving in the Pacific. Yankee manager Joe McCarthy had said, "If [he] pitched for the Yankees, he would have won over 400 games", but the lowly Sox never allowed him the chance to pitch in the postseason and he finished his career with 260 victories. Lyons was inducted into the Hall of fame on his eighth ballot in 1955.

Sunday Internet Sports: These auctions are presented only online and bidding is only taken through our website. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 15 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 15 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:03, the new end time for that lot would become 10:18. If no other bids were placed before 10:18, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 15 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:15. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
