Don Larsen 10-8-56 autographed vintage American League (Budig) baseball. The inscription signifying his game 5 no-hit of the Brooklyn Dodgers in the 1956 World Series. Donald James Larsen is best known for his amazing feat of throwing the only perfect game in the history of postseason play when he no-hit the Brooklyn Dodgers in Game 5 of the 1956 World Series.
Larsen came up with the St. Louis Browns in 1953, spent a year with the Baltimore Orioles, and then was traded to the New York Yankees in an 18-player deal.
In Baltimore, Larsen led the American League in losses with 21 in 1954, then pitched his best season with the Yankees in 1956 when he went 11-5. Don marked his place in baseball history as he threw the remarkable perfect game in Game 5 on the 1956 World Series. He was the 1956 AL Babe Ruth Award winner and the World Series MVP after his performance. He pitched in five World Series, winning twice, and compiling a 4-2 postseason record with one complete game and one shutout.

Larsen pitched 14 seasons in the Majors with the Browns, the Orioles, Yankees, Kansas City Athletics, Chicago White Sox, San Francisco Giants, Houston Astros, and the Chicago Cubs. Don Larsen compiled an 81-91 record with 44 complete games, 11 shutouts, 23 saves, 849 strikeouts and a 3.78 career ERA in 171 appearances.
