    Circa 1945 Bob Feller Major Leagues Lifetime Pass. The Heater From Van Meter was one of the sports world's first child prodigies. He bypassed the minor leagues and played his first Major League game when he was only seventeen and still in high school. Despite losing four prime years to World War II, he still managed to notch twelve one-hitters, three no-hitters, a Triple Crown, and a World Series championship, all before he reached his thirtieth birthday. The greatest hitter of all-time, Ted Williams, is on record as saying that Rapid Robert was the fastest and best he ever faced.

    This pass (4x3") was issued to Feller and allowed him access to any game he wanted to attend. "The National American Leagues of Professional Baseball Present This Lifetime Pass to Bob Feller In Appreciation of Long and Meritorious Service" is engraved on front. Facsimilie signatures of league Presidents William Harridge and Ford Frick appear on the bottom. We are inclined to believe that Feller was presented with this pass sometime during his stint in the military, while he was doing his party to free the world from tyranny. The pass comes with its original leather sleeve, both of which are in splendid condition.
