    1962 Bo Belinsky No-Hitter Game Used Baseball. "If I'd known I was gonna pitch a no-hitter today, I would have gotten a haircut," quipped Belinsky after his May 5, 1962 gem. Remembered as much for his world class harem of Hollywood starlets as for his mound mastery, Belinsky continues to draw attention a half century after he lowered the batting average of the entire Baltimore club. The presented OAL (Cronin) ball is the only known survivor from the contest, and is inscribed in 8/10 black ink, "No hitter against the Orioles May 5th, 62, Bo Belinsky." Writing is enhanced throughout. This would proved to be the first of eight no-hitters thrown by Jewish pitchers in a decade spanning from 1962 to 1971, followed by multiple Koufax masterpieces, two from Ken Holtzman and another from Joe Horlen. Letter of provenance is from Angels bat boy who saved the ball. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA (autograph). Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication (autograph).
