Former major-league left-handed pitcher Tommy John is selling a set of four MRIs of his elbow signed by himself and the late Dr. Frank Jobe, who performed the famous surgery in 1974, according to

The print costs $1,295, with proceeds going to John's "Let's Do It" Foundation. There are 99 prints in all.

The images were taken two years ago when John visited a clinic in Indianapolis to have his shoulder examined. The doctor decided to take images of John's famously-reconstructed elbow.

"Nobody had ever thought of taking pictures of what the nerve looked like on 'Patient Zero,'" said his agent, Kim Berger. "When the images came up, it was like looking at the Titanic. It happened so long ago and it was so beautiful."

Berger brought 100 prints of the collage to Jobe a year ago and Jobe signed them. In April, John gave one of them to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The team dedicated its training center to Jobe, who died in March. John played for the Dodgers at the time of his 1974 pioneering procedure.

Berger said proceeds from the signed prints will be reserved for the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine and the American Federation for Suicide Prevention. John's son, Taylor, committed suicide four years ago.

John won 164 games after having the surgery.

The procedure is growing in popularity as 16 pitchers have opted to have the surgery since February.
