Frank Jobe did not play in a Major League game, but he had a very major impact on it, especially relating to its pitchers. Dr. Jobe pioneered both elbow ligament replacement and major reconstructive shoulder surgery for baseball players. In 1974, he performed the first "Tommy John surgery" on Dodgers pitcher Tommy John. The procedure has become so prevalent, an estimated 1/3 of all major league pitchers have undergone it. Collectors who want a complete collection of single signed baseballs will seek one with Dr. Jobe's signature, finding it is a different matter. Very few were signed and none can be added to the market as he is deceased. This Los Angeles Dodgers logo baseball has been hand signed by Frank Jobe, M.D. The signature is guaranteed authentic and has been authenticated by PSA/DNA.
Note: This item does not include an individually numbered TRISTAR Authentication hologram, only the PSA/DNA authentication.
