    1938 Goudey Bob Feller #264 PSA NM-MT 8 - None Higher. Bob Feller made his debut in the Majors as a fire-throwing seventeen-year old phenom signing with the 1936 Cleveland Indians. He was not yet twenty at the time Goudey issued this card of the future Hall of Famer for what would be a breakout 1938 season. Feller nearly doubled his innings pitched for 1938, winning 17 games against 11 losses struck out 7.779 batters per game to set an American League record with 240 strikeouts. In 1939, the historic season that saw the debut of Ted Williams, the farewell of Lou Gehrig and the opening of the Baseball Hall of Fame, Rapid Robert set the American League strikeout mark again, adding to it a League-best twenty-four victories and equal number of complete games. Today, managers hope starters get them into the 6th inning. Upon retirement, Feller pitched 279 complete games, 44 shutouts, 3 no-hitters and a dozen one-hitters.

    Graded PSA NM-MT 8. One of six graded NM-MT with none higher. Two corners show light amounts of wear at the outer tips. The other two are "minty" if not mint. Centering, is a sliver away from perfection. Colors are rich and saturated, gentle toning is the lone element to suggest this card is vintage. His central portrait has retained strong color quality and truly "pops" off the surface. A pleasing card in each and every way one can hope for.
