Hall of Fame Signed Baseball - Jack Morris
Morris (b. 1955) played in the majors from 1977 to 1994 for the Tigers, Twins, Blue Jays and Indians. He had a career record of 254-186 with 2,478 strike outs and a 3.90 ERA. Morris won 20 or more games three times in his career. His best finish for the Cy Young Award was 3rd, which he achieved twice (1981 and 1983). His best finish in the MVP voting was 13th (1991 and 1992). He won the World Series in 1984 with the Tigers, 1991 with the Twins and 1992 with the Blue Jays. He was also on the 1993 Blue Jays which won the World Series, but he did not pitch in those playoffs. He was the 1991 World Series MVP.
Morris appeared on the Hall of Fame ballot for 15 years from 2000 to 2014 and reached as high as 67.7% of the vote.
I haven't added very many Hall of Fame baseballs to the collection this year. With the selection og Morris to the Hall, he becomes my 134th Hall of Famer in my collection.
I picked up this ball on Black Friday in 2013 as a purchase of Historic Autographs Ball of Fame II. I loved that product and now the value has shot up a little bit for me! You can read about the hit here.
