Description



At age 41, in his final Red Sox season, the great Cyclone posted his last 20-win mark with an infinitesimal 1.26 ERA. Here, the all-time win king appears in an accordion-style foldout gallery of small portraits, beneath a hinged baseball-shaped flap (w/clear-tape repair). Nine of the original twenty images are present, including McGuire (Manager), Young, Criger, Stahl (Capt.), Lord, Wagner, McConnell, Sullivan (missing corner) and Thoney. There's a crease on Young and a couple partial separations along the folds between players. The 3-1/2 x 5-1/2" card also exhibits peripheral mailing wear. A penciled message goes from sender "Max" to recipient "Jim Lewis" of Maine.
