The distinction as the baseball's first DH is, arguably, the pinnacle of Blomberg's career, and certainly the highlight for which he is best known. The bat Blomberg used against Tiant is part of the Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, according to Wikipedia.
Blomberg embraces the somewhat ignominious distinction, titling his autobiography Designated Hebrew.
Blomberg memorabilia is plentiful, affording collectors lots of choices — both in terms of type and price point.
Blomberg was also featured with Yankees teammate Bobby Mercer on the front cover of the July 2, 1973 issue of Sports Illustrated.
A frequent signer, Blomberg items — including signed and inscribed baseballs, photos, bats, jerseys and cards — are plentiful on Beckett.com, eBay and Amazon.com. Collectors can also purchase memorabilia directly from Blomberg, via his website.
