Ford led or tied for the American League lead in victories three times – 1955, 1961, and 1963– and earned run average twice. His best year may have been the fabled 1961 season, when he went 25-4 and won the Cy Young Award. Two years later he fashioned a 24-7 record to again lead the Yankees to a pennant. He won (10) and lost (8) more World Series games than anyone in history. In doing so he set a record not likely to be broken with 33 2/3 consecutive scoreless World Series innings, eclipsing the mark of 29 2/3 held by Babe Ruth.
Featuring a more horizontal feel and measuring a solid 3.5" by 5", this Whitey Ford wallet has bold, striking details throughout. Handcrafted from a Denkert G94 model baseball glove, this is a wallet that will catch anyone’s attention and is perfect for everyday use. We think the darker baseball laces provide a nice contrast from the lighter colored leather. Take a look on the inside at all the card load pockets, not to mention the full length cash slot as well. This was a joy to make and we couldn’t be more excited to get it out and into your hands. Enjoy!
