Card Show Pickup - Bob Lemon Hall of Fame Signed Baseball
I wasn't going to buy any baseballs, being this close to Christmas, but when I saw the above Bob Lemon that I needed and heard the price the lady was charging, I jumped all over it. She wanted $60 but said she would do $50, plus is it JSA, so I took the deal.
Lemon is my 96th Hall of Famer. The ball is a Bobby Brown OAL ball.
Bob Lemon (b. 1920 - d. 2000) played in the majors from 1946 to 1958, all for the Cleveland Indians. He had a career record of 207-128 with 1,277 strikeouts and an ERA of 3.23. He had 20 or more wins in 7 of his 13 seasons, not bad. He was the league leader in wins 3 times (1950 - 23; 1954 - 23; 1955 - 18). He won the World Series with the Indians in 1948 and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1976 when he got 78.6% of the writers' vote.
