Halladay is one of the most dominant pitchers of this entire generation. In the previous decade he has compiled the most complete games of any pitcher in baseball and those years were spent with the Toronto Blue Jays in the American League East, competing against the Yankees and Red Sox and Rays 20 games each per year. Most people believe it's the toughest division in baseball. Now he's pitching for the Phillies in the National League which has no designated hitter and is a much weaker league in general. Basically Halladay is going to continue raking up innings, wins, strikeouts and awards at an amazing rate. This bat is a great investment as Halladay is a sure fire Hall of Famer when he finally retires and it would look great display anywhere. Comes with a coa from GAI which is one of the best and most trusted authentication companies in the business.
