    1940 Bob Feller First Career No-Hitter Original Photograph, Only Opening Day No-Hitter in History. Bob Feller kicked off the finest season of his career in just about the grandest fashion of them all, no-hitting the Chicago White Sox on Opening Day in Chicago. The Heater from Van Meter would finish the campaign with 27 victories, 261 strikeouts, and an ERA of 2.61 - all league leaders. Though he would finish second to Hank Greenberg in MVP balloting, modern metrics would say that Feller was the best player in both league in 1940 (and it wasn't particularly close).

    Captured in 7x9" format Feller is pictured with a pair of teammates, exiting the field excitedly after recording the final out. Light wear is exhibited throughout the image with minor creasing. Reverse features an original paper caption, purple "FIELD APR 17 1940" stamp, and black "ACME Newspictures" stamp. The ACME stamp hails from the Chicago Bureau and was used by the company from the mid-1930s to the early-1940s.
