Offered is a Nolan Ryan signature on an original Arlington Stadium chair. Over a record 27-year Major League Baseball career, Ryan pitched for the New York Mets, California Angels, Houston Astros, and Texas Rangers. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1999. The all-time leader in no-hitters with seven, three more than any other pitcher, Ryan had a lifetime record of 324–292 (.526) and was an eight-time MLB All-Star. His 5,714 career strikeouts are an MLB record by a significant margin.

The Baseball Hall of Fame pitcher has signed his name in silver marker on the seat back of the 20 x 26-inch brown plastic stadium seat, which is intact including the two steel posts that were once bolted to concrete at the former home of the Texas Rangers baseball club. The posts are at an angle, so that the seat cannot be seated flat outside of its original configuration. There is a silver metal plaque labelled “2” in black, affixed to the upper right corner of the seat back. Below the seat number is a gold plate that reads “GENUINE BOX SEAT FROM ARLINGTON STADIUM (AKA TURNPIKE STADIUM 1965-1971) ARLINGTON, TEXAS HOME OF THE TEXAS LEAGUE (DALLAS-FORT WORTH SPURS) 1965-1971 AMERICAN LEAGUE (TEXAS RANGERS) 1972-1993 AUTHENTICITY GUARANTEED BY TEXAS RANGERS BASEBALL CLUB ARLINGTON, TEXAS 76004). During that period, the Rangers called Arlington Stadium their home; in fact, the ballpark closed in 1993, the year Ryan retired. This item comes with a LOA from JSA.

Please note that due to the size and weight of this item, shipping costs will be higher.
