    1963 Denny McLain Signed & Inscribed Game Used Baseball from His First Major League Win from The Denny McLain Collection. Denny McLain was a three-time twenty-game winner, the American League Cy Young Award winner in 1968 and 1969, the American League MVP in 1968, and a World Series champion with the Detroit Tigers in 1968. He is also the last man to win thirty games in Major League Baseball when he went 31-6 with 280 strikeouts and a 1.96 earned run average.

    This game used OAL (Cronin) ball dates from the nineteen-year-old's first win in the Major Leagues. Incidentally, he also helped his own cause by belting his one and only Big League home run in that contest. The two panels inscribed and signed in his hand read "First win in the Big Leagues, Sept. 21, 1963, Chicago White Sox, 4-3" and "Sharyn, without you there would be no Big Leagues for me. Love, Denny." Letter of provenance from Denny McLain. Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA
