    The Mad Dash, Owen's passed Ball, And VanderMeer's No Hitter Signed Oversized Photographs Lot Of 3. On June 11, 1938, Johnny VanderMeer pitched a no hitter against the Boston Bees. Four days later against the Brooklyn Dodgers, he threw another no hitter, becoming the only man to ever throw two consecutive no hitters. After his double no-hit achievement, Reds management wanted Vander Meer to change his uniform number to "00" but he declined. The offered 11x14" photo has been signed by Johnny with the date of each no hitter. The second photo also measures 11" x 14" and is signed in Mint sharpie by Enos Slaughter, Marty Marion, and Roy Partee. The Mad Dash, or Slaughter's Mad Dash, refers to an event in the eighth inning of the seventh game of the 1946 World Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Boston Red Sox. With Enos Slaughter on first and two outs Harry Walker lined the ball to left-center field. Red Sox center fielder was the first to reach the ball. As he threw a relay to shortstop Johnny Pesky , Slaughter rounded third base , running right through the stop sign being given by third base coach Mike Gonzalez heading for home plate with the winning run. The final 11"x 14" photo show's "Owen's Passed Ball", and is signed by Mickey Owens, and Tommy Heinrich with the date in blue sharpie.
    On the afternoon of Oct. 5, 1941, the Yankees were trailing the Dodgers
    4-3, at Ebbets Field in Game 4 of the World Series and were down to their final
    out with Brooklyn about to tie the Series at two games apiece. Tommy Henrich,
    the Yankees' star outfielder, was at the plate with nobody on base and a full count. A pitch broke sharply, and Henrich swung and missed. The pitch hit the heel of Owen's glove and skipped away for a passed
    ball. The Yankees ended up winning the game, and they captured the World Series the next day. Pre Certified By PSA/DNA.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
