TTM Success: Hall of Famer, Mr. Ed ‘Whitey’ Ford!!!
This is ball number three that I sent out a few short weeks ago. Amazingly, it took all three pitchers very little time to return these signed baseballs back to me.
First was Gaylord Perry(class of 1991), and then was Phil Niekro(class of 1997), and now ball number three signed by Whitey Ford(class of 1974) has been returned to me.
For Yankees fans, and baseball historians with an affinity for the game during the 1950s and 1960s, Whitey Ford was the cream of the crop. A mighty pitcher, with the ability to win in big games, Ford was a fan-favorite on a team loaded with superstars!
Ford played 16 seasons in the big leagues – all of them with the Yankees. During that time, he started 438 games while compiling a record of 236-106. He was the American League’s CY Young Award winner in 1961 and he made 8 All-Star teams. Whitey played in 11 World Series match-ups during his playing days, ultimately winning 6 World Series championships.
I am very excited to add this autographed baseball to my collection!!!
Thank you Mr. Ford!!!
