Edd got his break in the Federal League after washing out with the White Sox. He always believed his 1919 Reds would have won the World Series even without the Black Sox scandal. This card is a rare Federal League HOFer!
Wamby lamented that no matter what he did in his life, he would always be remembered for only one thing: his unassisted triple play in the 1920 World Series.
Specs was one of the first players to wear glasses on the field. They didn't stop him from playing 8 seasons in the Bigs. Sadly, he went blind in later life.
A mediocre pitcher in his early days in the Majors, Ray''s arm gave out at age 25. Undeterred, he turned to the outfield and he proudly tells us he had a .302 career BA.
Floyd relates that he was not named after Babe Ruth, but Babe Herman a champion prizefighter. He laments that if he had 3 more hits in 1930 he would have batted .400, not .393!
Willie was amazed when he was sold to the White Sox in 1922 for $100,000. He thought he wasn't worth it. After a 13 year career with a lifetime BA of .291...he was probably right!
The "Iron Horse" was a fantastic player. Playing in Ruth''''s shadow, Lou had a .340 lifetime BA with 493 HRs. ALS..a disease now bearing his name...struck Lou down at age 38.
Schiraldi was traded to the Red Sox before the 1986 season. Ironically Calvin LOST Games 6 and 7 of the 1986 World Series. The man the Mets got for him, Bobby Ojeda, WON Game 3 of the Series.
Never thought they'd have Chrome inserts of Davy! Actually, a pretty nice card, reminiscent of the 1956 Topps Baseball set. Picture of Davy with the Alamo in the background.
