The “Curse of the Bambino” may have stopped the Red Sox from winning the World Series, but it did not stop them from achieving success during those years. Williams and Yastrzemski amongst others led the troops in a number of winning years, but only three pennants due to the dominance of the Yankees. This lot of (24) 1934-1967 Boston Red Sox publications in average (EX-MT) condition pays tribute to the “Sawx”. An appealing lot for vintage baseball collectors.
