2019 National Pickup - Randy Johnson Signed Baseball
Johnson (b. 1963) played in the majors from 1988 to 2009 for the Expos, Mariners, Astros, Diamondbacks, Yankees and Giants. He had a career record of 303-166 with 4,875 strike outs and a 3.29 ERA. He led the league in strikeouts 9 times. He had 6 seasons where he struck out more than 300 batters. He led the league in ERA 4 times. He won the Cy Young Award 5 times (1995, AL; 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002, all NL). He was an All Star 10 times (1990, 1993-95, 1997, 1999-2002, and 2004). He won the World Series with the Diamondbacks in 2001, sharing Co-MVP honors with Curt Schilling.
Johnson was elected to the Hall of Fame in 2015 when he was named on 97.3% of the ballot, his first ballot.
I priced several Johnson baseballs, and on the Sunday of the show, I got a great deal on this baseball. It was the same price someone else quoted me on an older ball without the HOF inscription, so I had to jump on this one.
Johnson is my 145th Hall of Famer on a baseball.
