Jack Brickhouse was a sportscaster for the Chicago Cubs from 1948 to 1981. His broadcasting style was more of quick bursts than long sentences, because he thought the picture should tell the story. Some of his comments would include various old-fashioned expressions, like "Wheeee!" and "Oh, Brother". When the team would do something great, like hit a home run, he'd use his best-known expression "hey-hey!". The 1983 Ford C. Frick Award winner also covered other sports; he was the voice of the Chicago Bears from 1953 to 1977, and covered Chicago Bulls games from 1966 to 1973. Brickhouse passed away in 1998 at the age of 82. This vintage Rawlings official National League (Coleman) baseball has been hand signed by Jack Brickhouse.
