Description



The high leg kick of Warren Spahn baffled many a hitter as the longtime Brave hurler was one of the best at disrupting the timing of opposing sluggers. The signature windup of Spahn is captured in the offered original cartoon sketch by Willard Mullin, who was voted “Sports Cartoonist of the Century” by The National Cartoonist Society in 1971. The cartoon depicts the Braves mascot saying “Das ist sehr strongestuff nein?” (German: That’s strong stuff, no?) to a dejected Yankee with a “Two Hit Shutout” trophy; the Mullin piece is referencing Spahn’s 1958 World Series Game 4 performance. A truly extraordinary sketch, this is an excellent addition to the personal inventory of any vintage baseball or Braves fan.
