Gaylord Perry Baseball Hall of Famer Photographs (23)
Notorious spitball pitching HOFer Gaylord Perry is the subject of this collection of news service photos from the 1960's and 1970's. Sized from 7" x 9" to 8" x 11" and in VG-EX condition with some newspaper edit marks, these images chronicle the career of Mr. Perry. Perry is one of only 4 pitchers in history to have won the Cy Young award in both the American and National leagues. Three of the photos depict a 1969 sequence in which umpire Doug Harvey is at the mound, inspecting a ball for signs it was one of Perry's infamous spitballs. All he found on the ball was Warren Giles autograph! Perry was not actually ejected from a game for the offense until 1982, 21 years into his career!
