Much like the intrigue of the power hitter, the strikeout pitcher is the type of pitcher that fans love to watch. There is just something about watching a pitcher baffle the opposition, preventing the hitter from even putting the ball in play. These strikeout pitchers come in all forms. From Bert Blyleven and his wicked curveball to Greg Maddux and his pinpoint control to the overpowering fastball of Nolan Ryan, each of the pitchers on this list were nearly impossible to hit when they had their best stuff. Led by Walter Johnson, the key autograph to the set, these men have been the only ones to amass 3,000 strikeouts or more.
Notes: All balls autographed on the "sweet spot" receive 1 bonus point.
