    Description

    1995 Dennis Eckersley Game Used Final Out Baseball from His 900th Major League Appearance. The first pitcher in Major League Baseball history who could claim to have both a twenty-win season and a fifty-save season in his career, Dennis Eckersley was a Cy Young Award winner, league MVP, World Series champion, and first ballot Hall of Famer.

    After racking up a 200-strikeout season, a no-hitter, and 22 1/3 innings of pitching hitless baseball, all during his early twenties, Eck reinvented himself as the game's greatest closer during a five-season (1988-92) run with the Oakland Athletics when he was untouchable. During that time span, he was 24-9 with a 1.90 ERA, while averaging forty-four saves, seventy-six strikeouts, and just eight walks.

    On offer here today is Eck's game used final out baseball from his 900th Major League appearance while a member of the A's in 1995. OAL (Budig) ball shows appropriate game use but is still in great condition. The ball was acquired from the St. Louis Cardinals' trainer in 1995. Letter of provenance from trainer Barry Weinberg.
