Atlanta Braves Legend Steve Avery Autographed Hand Signed Photo - comes with certificate of authenticity.
The 1991 season was a magical year for both Avery and the Braves. The team went from worst to first while Avery compiled a record of 18–8 with a 3.38 ERA. He gave the Braves their first win of the season, a 7–5 victory over the defending world champion Reds. In the heat of the September pennant race with the Los Angeles Dodgers, the 21 year-old Avery beat them twice, 9–1 at home, and 3–0 on the road, pitching a complete game both times. Avery's last win of the regular season was a stellar performance against the Houston Astros. Avery threw a no-hitter for 6.2 innings until Luis Gonzalez broke it up with a single.
Avery's amazing season continued with one of the greatest postseason performances of all-time. He shut out the Pittsburgh Pirates for 16.2 innings over two games and accumulated two 1–0 wins. His performance earned him MVP honors for the 1991 NLCS. In the 1991 World Series, Avery earned no decisions in two starts but pitched effectively in both Game 3 and Game 6.
