Rawlings Official Major League baseball. Hand-signed by Tom Seaver, Nolan Ryan, Donn Clendenon, Jerry Koosman, Cleon Jones, Al Weis, Al Jackson, JC Martin, Bud Harrelson, Jerry Grote, Ken Boswell, Wayne Garrett, Ed Charles, Ron Swoboda, Jim McAndrew, Amos Otis, Jim Gosger, Art Shamsky, Duffy Dyer and Ed Kranepool.

Nolan Ryan, nicknamed "The Ryan Express" pitched for four different teams during his 27 year career: the New York Mets, California Angels, Houston Astros, and Texas Rangers. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1999.

Ryan, a hard-throwing, right-handed pitcher, threw pitches that were regularly recorded above 100 miles per hour. The high velocity remained throughout his career, even into his 40s. Ryan was also known to throw a devastating 12–6 curveball at exceptional velocity for a breaking ball.

While his lifetime winning percentage was .526, Ryan was an eight-time MLB All-Star, and his 5,714 career strikeouts rank first in baseball history by a significant margin. Other than Jackie Robinson (whose number was retired by the entire MLB), Ryan is currently the only major league baseball player to have his number retired by at least three different teams: the Angels, Astros, and Rangers.

Ryan is the all-time leader in no-hitters with seven, three more than any other pitcher. He is tied with Bob Feller for the most one-hitters, with 12. Ryan also pitched 18 two-hitters.

The lot / autograph(s) includes an official Beckett Authentication Services hologram and matching LOA for authenticity purposes.
