This Dobson has a pin hole and is dangerously close to being too off-centered for my liking, but ultimately it makes the grade.  Pin holes don't bother me at all, I actually kind of like them.  Dobson himself was a little dinged up, as he managed to blow off his thumb and left fore-finger playing with firecrackers as a kid.  Which makes it at least a little bit more impressive that he was able to still end up being an MLB All-Star, and even threw a complete game and picked up a win in Game 5 of the 1946 World Series.

Stats: 14 seasons, All-Star, 137 wins, 103 losses, 3.62 ERA, 112 CG, 992 SO
