"Kings Of The Hill: An Irreverant Look at the Men on the Mound" Hardcover book is hand-signed on the inside title page by Nolan Ryan (Texas Rangers, HOF).

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. 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.

The lot / autograph(s) includes an official James Spence Authentication (JSA) hologram and matching COA for authenticity purposes.
