TTM #84- Perfection at It's Finest!

Hey guys, Drew back here! Finally, after a long week of baseball, baseball, and more baseball, I got an opportunity to rest my legs for the night, and get back to you all on here! A few weeks ago, I came home to receive this incredible TTM success I sent out about 2 weeks prior. I bought the photograph at a recent card show, knowing that it would be a sweet addition to the collection. I already have gotten a few of his autographs but this one is probably the nicest of the bunch so far. Take a look:

This photograph was signed by the World Series' lone perfect pitcher, in Don Larsen! Larsen signed this picture of his final pitch of Game 5 of the 1956 World Series! What adds to the photograph in general is how the scoreboard can be viewed in the background, behind Larsen and Billy Martin, which shows 8 straight zeros, followed by three more where runs, hits, and errors are normally found. He inscribed the picture "WS PG 10-8-56", which obviously stands for World Series perfect game, and it just looks incredible in person. 

I sent Don $5 to sign the picture, but unfortunately it wasn't quite enough for his liking, as you can see on the note he left me on his price list. I haven't gotten around to getting the money out yet but I will most certainly do so in his request. It is completely worth the price I paid, especially being a huge fan of Yankees past and present history. Certainly something I'll enjoy owning in my collection!

Thank you so much Mr. Larsen for signing my picture, and to the rest of you, See Ya!

"When it was over, I was so happy, I felt like crying. I wanted to win this one for Casey Stengel. After what I did in Brooklyn, he could have forgotten about me and who would blame him? But he gave me another chance and I'm grateful." - Don Larsen
