Sandy Koufax Autographed 'WS Pitching at Yankee Stadium' Photograph
Sandy Koufax was the most dominating pitcher of his generation. His career peaked with a six-year run like no other in the history of the game from 1961-1966, a period of time that included six straight All-Star appearances, three Cy Young Awards, and a NL MVP Award in 1963. From 1963-1966, he won 97 games and lost only 27.
A four-time World Series Champion and two-time World Series MVP, Koufax played his entire career for the Dodgers organization, first in Brooklyn and then in Los Angeles. He threw four No-Hitters and one perfect game and made national headlines for his controversial decision to not pitch during Game 1 of the 1965 World Series, as the game fell on Yom Kippur, the most holy day in the Jewish religion. His career was cut short due to a bout with arthritis at the age of 30. As a result he became the youngest player to ever be elected to Baseball's Hall of Fame in 1972 at age 36.
