Collection: Brad Penny 2005 Leaf Autograph

Here is something I had forgotten.  Via Wikipedia:
On September 23, 2006, against the Arizona Diamondbacks, Penny joined the small club of pitchers who have struck out four batters in one inning. Due to the uncaught third strike rule, Penny was credited with striking out Chad Tracy, but because catcher Russell Martin failed to catch the ball cleanly, Tracy was allowed to attempt to run to first base, and made it there before he could be thrown out. Despite giving up three runs in the inning, Penny recorded three more strikeouts to complete the four-strikeout inning.

Featured above and below is a 2005 Leaf Century Collection autographed card of Brad Penny, numbered 015 out of 250 in my collection.

Here are his career stats.
