Congratulations to the 2018 Boston Red Sox on being crowned champions of the American League! The ALCS was a thrilling series to watch, start to finish, and certainly a controversial one as well. To celebrate the culmination of an amazing season with a World Series berth, here are a couple of much older Red Sox cards from my collection that I've never featured here before...
George was a damn good player, finishing as a career .307 hitter with three World Series championships. In 1926 he won the American League MVP Award, which I confess I was not aware of when I picked this one up. Hitting .358 with 64 doubles (yes, you read that right) seems like a good way to be named Most Valuable Player.
Mickey Harris was a pitcher who, like so many from his generation, pressed the pause button on his professional career to serve his country in World War II. After the war he was a major component of Boston's 1946 team that lost the World Series to the Cardinals, and was even named an All-Star that year.
Well, that's a wrap for today. Hope you enjoyed this pair of moldy oldies. I'll certainly be watching the NLCS tonight. Still not sure who I would prefer win that series, but I certainly want the Brewers to win tonight to stretch it out to 7 games and tire out both teams that much more.
Thanks as always for stopping by!
Why Not? - I didn't have any purple ink autographs before, so why not add this inexpensive one I saw while looking through '21 Luminance cards? He doesn't appear ...
I love those old caramel era cards too! Especially the Red Sox! You can put 1922 together for cheaper than you'd think.
I certainly enjoyed seeing those "moldy oldies"!
Beauties Shane. Love both sets
Love these moldy oldies!
