Discuss the rich history of baseball in here.
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.
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. :)
Does this go here. It is Yankee related. oh well!
Is there a site or anybody know all of Yogi's sayings...
his famous yogiism....
Gehrig I love this forum but your questions are too difficult :lol:
Here's one for everyone *but* Gehrig to try:
Whose bronzed bat is the Stadium weather vane made from?
I got back two more pictures that were taken when I visited the Hall of Fame this summer.
Here's one that's very appropriate to post this evening, as the Red Sux leave town with the realization they will watch the postseason on tv once again :lol:
This is totally meaningless but I found it an interesting "fun fact" -
What do Rickey Henderson, Randy Velarde, and Al Leiter have in common?

Seattle - Stump Merrill was in the middle of a telephone conversation yesterday about Lou Piniella and about how getting fired as Yankees manager isn't the end of the world. Then Merrill, at home in Maine, had to excuse himself to answer the door.
The UPS driver delivered a package from Tampa and suggested Merrill might be getting one just like it next year. "I sure hope so," said Merrill, knowing that it was...
When I first read the header for this article I thought Pepi had died! Nice article.

What were the Bustin Babes and Larupin Lous barnstorming teams? I've seen photos of Babe and Lou in their unis from these teams - were they games they played for charities?
A great game upcoming on ESPN Classic:
Feb. 25 Mon. 9 p.m.
1996 World Series, Game 6
Yankees 3, Braves 2
New York, NY 10/26/96
Yankees win 1st title since 1978
The Babe had a rather memorable game. What happened?
New York's Reggie Jackson loafs after a fly ball during a 10-4 loss to Boston and is taken out by manager Billy Martin. Jackson and Martin nearly come to blows in the dugout as national television cameras watch.
During that series with the Sox June 17-19, Boston set a ML record by hitting 16 homers in their three game sweep of our Yanks (courtesy of The Yankee Encyclopedia).
Looking back, I'm REALLY glad there was no Internet back then! ;)
"Deep to left! Yastrzemski will not get it! It's a home run! A three-run homer by Bucky Dent! And the Yankees now lead by a score of 3-2!"

What do Steve Chilcott and Ron Blomberg have in common?
What about Sammy Sosa and Roger Clemens??
(I understand that question makes no sense. It's fine. ;))
(Number of earned runs x 9) divided by (number of innings pitched)
That's the pitching formula, which makes perfect sense. But what if a guy comes in on his first appearance of the season and gives up five runs without recording an out? Then, technically, he's pitched zero innings while giving up five runs. So the formula would read (5x9)/0, which brings you to 0 and error on the calculator.
What would this guy's ERA be after this appearance?
I was discussing this with my dad last night... I obviously wasn't around in those days, but he says one of the players was Fritz Peterson. Who was the other??
#42 was retired in honor of Jackie Robinson, and those who already had the number were allowed to keep it, which is how Mariano is the only player in baseball to wear #42.
So how did Mo Vaughn get #42?!
It occurred to me last night -- I think it was in the eighth inning when Bernie walked? Anyway, say a pitcher is brought into a game (first game of the season, let's say, so he doesn't have an ERA yet) and walks four batters in a row without recording an out, so he gave up a run in zero innings. How does that figure?
I'm looking for suggestions
for an all time all italian YANKEES team. This is the team so far
Catcher: Yogi Berra
1st base: Jason Giambi
2nd base: Tony Lazzeri
3rd base: Mike Pagliarulo Shortstop: Phil Rizzuto
Outfield: Joe Dimaggio
Pitchers: Dave Righetti
What is your favorite YANKEES
nickname? There are really a lot to choose from. Some guys had more than one, like Babe, The Bambino or The Sultan of Swat.
How many can we come up with?
My personal favorite is **** Tidrow's "Dirt". Horace Clarke
was "Hoss". Gene Michael, Crosetti,Lazzeri,Henrich, Dimaggio,Guidry,Lyle, and plenty
more. The good historians will remember most of them.
Does anyone collect sports cards? I'd be interested to know what anyone collects and what your favorite set or cards are.
Do you collect old or new? Baseball, football, basketball,
hockey, golf whatever. THANKS
in advance. By the way I am NOT
A DEALER, just a collector.
Imagine you are a GM. You have to win 1 game. You can pick 9
players from past or present to win the game. 8 position players 1 pitcher. No bench at all. The other team has the remaining players at their disposal.
Who do you pick?
My Team and Lineup:
2B Joe Morgan
SS Derek Jeter
LF Ted Williams
RF Babe Ruth
CF Willie Mays
I recently bought a box of Upper Deck Etchings. In the box I got 4 autographs among them were 2 Ken Griffey,Jr. They were identical except for the serial numbers. I traded one of them even up for a 1996 Leaf Signature Series (gold) autograph of Mariano Rivera. The gold issue was limited to 500 autographs and is not numbered. The Griffey is
serial numbered 1231 of 1629.
Does anyone have an opinion on the deal I made?
Positions aren't important, just who you like,or think is the best player for each letter of the alphabet. Only one player per letter.
A- Luis Arroyo P
B- Yogi Berra C
C- Chris Chambliss 1B
D- Joe Dimaggio CF
E- Alvaro Espinoza SS
F- Whitey Ford P
G- Lou Gehrig 1B
H- Elston Howard C
