(2) Dwight Gooden No Hitter Team Signed Baseballs

(2) Dwight Gooden No Hitter Team Signed Baseballs

In true storybook fashion, Doc Gooden’s struggle with his own inner demons was validated when he pitched a no-hitter against the Seattle Mariners on May 14, 1996. The once completely unhittable RHP, drafted by the Mets out of high school, was the toast of the Big Apple again. A decade after becoming the youngest hurler in history to win the Cy Young at age 20, Doctor K was in grave danger of never playing ball again. But a year-and-a-half later, Doc would get a second chance with the New York Yankees. Using a shortened delivery and an even higher leg kick, Dwight Gooden summoned his old stuff for the best pitching performance of his career in a 2-0 masterpiece. For a moment New York fans believed in the Doc’s resurgence. These two OAL (Budig) baseballs are a great tribute to that fleeting moment of perfection, achieved by one of the greatest strikeout pitchers ever to take the mound. Both nicely used and rubbed up with a decent amount of dirt from the mound. Each one bears 10 ink signatures from New York Yankees players involved in that historic event. All are done in black ballpoint except for Gooden, who signed in blue ink on the sweet spot with the date and “No Hitter.” Other signatures include Jeter, Boggs, O’Neill, & Martinez. LOA.
