Discuss the rich history of baseball in here.
One of our newer forumers offered to share some photos, but didn't have enough posts to start a new one. Babe, this thread's for you -- post away. :)
Hey folks...This is a great website for autograph news. They've also been exposing the falacies of the third party authenticators claiming to be the "industry leading experts" such as JSA, GAI, PSA/DNA and others...
Very good info!!
Here is one of their recent news items...

For those of you who are interested in memorabilia shows (not just baseball) for the entire country this is the best website that I have seen.
I am going to start a series of Yankees World Series Trivia chronologically from 1921 on up.
* 1921 *
YANKEES vs. GIANTS
1. Whose bunt single gave Waite Hoyt a 3-1 win in game 5 ?
2. Who stole home in the Yankees FIRST World Series game ?
I would like to see a move made to retire #3 for all time much like #42. With all due respect to Jackie Robinson and all he went through, I feel that Babe Ruth had quite a hand in bringing baseball back after the Black Sox scandal almost put an end to this wonderful game. I've heard it said again and again by baseball people, both writers and players and officials, if not for The Babe, we might not have baseball to enjoy today. I recently heard that Marvin Miller should be voted into the...
OK I messed it up and loaded the wrong photo. I now have the correct clue with the right photo. Try again.
Can you guess which Yankee this is? If you need a hint he was born in Mahonoy City, PA
Monday afternoon at 3:30, ESPN Classics will show the game played 22 years ago today in which Bobby Murcer almost single-handedly led the Yankees to a comeback win over the Orioles on the same day as Munson's funeral.
What Yankee player wrote this poem to him?
To Joe DiMaggio
Roses are Red
Violets are blue
Ted Williams can hit

Who replaced Craig at third base,and what team did he come from?
I was not fortunate enough to see Bill Dickey play.....I would appreciate any descriptions of him as a hitter/player that anyone who watched him would care to make. Perhaps, of the great Yankees, I know less of him than anyone.......Thanks.

Pinch-hitters shined in the 1947 World Series...
Cookie Lavagetto got the most memorable pinch-hit of that fall classic. His double, with 2 outs in the 9th inning of game 4, broke up Bill Beven's no-hitter and gave the Dodgers a 3-2 victory.
But the Yankees had their pinch-hitting heroes too ! In game three, Yogi Berra, a rookie, hit the first pinch-hit home run in World Series history !! !!
The "Golden Boy" tag, however went to another Yankee rookie, Bobby Brown. He hit safely in his...
I was one of the least heralded of the great pitchers, 187-117 in late teens through '20s. I threw together four consecutive 20-win campaigns for the St Louis Browns, including an AL best 27-12 in 1921. I had a very quiet, intense and serious demeanor. Although I was known as A finesse pitcher, I threw a legal spitball. I also had a bent finger from my days as a catcher which I think helped my pitching. I Spent 1925-28 with the Yankees.
Who am I ?

Who are your Top 10 All-Time Yankee OFs, in order? Here's mine:
In the "win all" culture of today's society, I have come to feel that the pennants The Yankees won, but did not lead to Series victories get more and more overlooked. Being the "League Champion" is still quite an accomplishment. It is not like the other sports. People do remember who lost the series. Ask the '51 Giants, '67 Red Sox, the Boys of Summer, and even The Yankees of the '20's. Thier WS record was 3 - 3. yet they laid the foundation for the Dynasty. True to validate a great...
What batter locked up in a famous La Lob episode with Dave Laroche?
A peace summit commences between the American and National Leagues in an attempt to unite the two under similar rules, and establish a “World Series”. AL President Ban Johnson lets it known he wants a team in New York. Johnson got 15 of the 16 Major League owners to agree the lone dissenter was John T. Bush owner of the New York Giants. Johnson arranged to have Frank Farrell and Bill Devery buy the struggling Baltimore Orioles and move them to Manhattan.
