No-No For The Ages
Historic 1938 Monte Pearson No-Hitter Game Ball Signed by 1938 New York Yankees Including Gehrig and DiMaggio – First No-Hitter Pitched in Yankee Stadium
Quality / Condition
As a rookie, Monte Pearson was the AL ERA leader (2.33) with the Indians in 1933. The next year he was 18-13, but after a disappointing 1935 season, he was traded to the Yankees. He bounced back with his best year, 19-7, with an AL-leading .731 percentage, and earned a reputation as a solid post-season performer for the Yanks. Perhaps his finest moment came on August 27, 1938, when he pitched a no-hitter against his old team, the Indians, in the second game of a double-header, the first no-hitter ever pitched in Yankee Stadium.
