Hoyt Wilhelm, (1922-2002) - Autographed 20.3 x 25.4cm (8 x 10in) photo - Although not entering the Major Leagues until the age of 29, Wilhelm put together a great career. Although he did start some games, credited with a no-hitter in 1958, he was predominantly recognized as a premier reliever. His famed pitch was the knuckleball which allowed him to pitch longer than many pitchers. He was on 8 All-star teams and led the league twice in E.R.A. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1985.
