Jim Bunning retired after the 1971 season with 2,855 Ks, second only at the time to Walter Johnson's 3,506. Bunning threw no-hitters in each league, including a perfect game vs the Mets on Father's Day, 1964. Here, it's Sunday, August 9, 1964, at Connie Mack Stadium in Philadelphia. Seven weeks since Bunning's perfecto at Shea. And the Phillies' Hall of Fame side-armer is having his way with the Mets again. It's the second inning, and Bunning, 32, is working over Joe Christopher, who eventually will pop to rookie 3B Richie Allen. Later, Christopher will spoil another bid for perfection with a two-out bunt in the fifth. To that point, Bunning had retired 45 straight Mets over three games. Today, he'll allow five hits in a 6-0 victory. Clay Dalrymple (C), Ruben Amaro (SS), Tony Taylor (2B) and Tony Gonzalez (CF) are the other Phillies visible. The umpire is Al Barlick. Bunning's other no-hitter? For the Tigers vs the Red Sox on July 20, 1958.

Measuring 15 3/4" tall x 36" wide, this lithograph, officially titled Philly's Perfect Ace, is limited in edition to 600 prints. Each is numbered and signed by the artist, Bruce Becker, from whose original painting the fine art print has been exactingly reproduced onto acid-free paper, which is noted for its long-term archival abilities.
