As a senior in high school, David Clyde finished with a record of 18-0 with only three earned runs in 148 innings pitched. He became the first pick in the 1973 MLB Draft by the Texas Rangers and he received the highest signing bonus ever given to a draft pick at the time. Clyde completely skipped the minors and made his Major League debut later that season. This Rawlings official Major League baseball has been hand signed by David Clyde. Each autograph includes an individually numbered TRISTAR Authentic hologram.
