    Rare Nolan Ryan's '5000th Strikeout' Signed Photograph

    Nolan Ryan signed this photograph "5,000th Strike Out, Nolan Ryan" for Dallas Morning News photographer David Woo, one week after the history making game. Mr. Woo is credited with this famous image.

    The very large size of the photograph and the additional wording in Ryan's hand "5000th strikeout" makes this a premier item for a Nolan Ryan fan.
