Rickey Henderson is the greatest thief in baseball history. From all accounts, off the baseball field Henerson is an honest man, but put him on a baseball diamond and Rickey has a maniacal desire to do two things: steal bases and score runs. As for thievery, Henderson stole an astounding 1,406 bases in the Big Leagues. Henderson played for 25 seasons, during which time he played for nine teams - mostly for Oakland (14 years) and for the New York Yankees (5 years). Henderson has become the best base stealer of all time, outdistancing Ty Cobb, Lou Brock, Maury Wills and everyone else. And for runs? That is the second part of Henderson's combination. Rickey scored 2,295 runs, more than any other player in history. Offered is the chance to own an autographed full ticket to the May 1, 1991, day game at Oakland's Alameda County Coliseum against the New York Yankees in which Ricky Henderson stole base #935. In the game (won by Oakland 7-4), Rickey batted lead-off and played left field. In the bottom of the first inning, Henderson walked and was thrown out trying to steal second base. Henderson reached first on an infield error in the fourth inning. Rickey moved to second base on a single. After a Jose Canseco flyout, Rickey stole third base off Tim Leary (pitching) and Matt Nokes (catching). The full ticket (2x6.1") is for a four dollar bleacher seat. Henderson signed the front of the ticket in blue marker. The ticket has a PSA/DNA Certification and it has been encapsulated and graded by PSA NM 7, Auto 10, with a PSA Pop report of 3, with only 1 higher. Henderson is a Hall of Famer who stole more bases than anyone on the planet, so a 10 autograph on a full ticket from a game in which he stole a base can enhance any baseball collection.
