1931 World Series Program This attractive baseball program is from the 1931 World Series. That Fall Classic was a rematch of the 1930 World Series. It pitted the Philadelphia Athletics versus the St. Louis Cardinals. The A's had won the World Series in 1929 and 1930, but the Cards took the '31 tilt in seven games. According to the hand-written notation, this program is from Game Five which was played on October 7 at Philadelphia's Shibe Park. The Cardinals only had one major lineup change from 1930: a 27-year-old rookie outfielder named Pepper Martin. Had there been a World Series MVP award in 1931, Martin would have won it. He led the Cards in several offensive categories--including stolen bases. Martin also made a crucial running catch to snuff out a ninth-inning Philadelphia rally in Game Seven. This was the last World Series appearance by the Philadelphia A's. The next time the Athletics appeared in a World Series was in 1972 when they were the Oakland A's.

Bobby Orr Trophy Collection This is one of my favorite posed sports photos: Bobby Orr of the Boston Bruins with the hardware he had accrued by the age of 23. The trophies are the Stanley Cup (which his team would win twice) the Prince of Wales Trophy (won three times by the Bruins), the Calder Trophy (rookie of the year), the Norris Trophy (best defenseman; won eight times), the Art Ross Trophy (NHL scoring champion; twice), Conn Smythe Trophy (playoff MVP; twice), and the Hart Trophy (NHL MVP; three times). Not bad, huh?

Frank Gifford on Whats My Line New York Giants' halfback Frank Gifford appears as a regular contestant on the December 2, 1956 episode of What's My Line. Earlier that day Gifford had figured in all four the the Giants' touchdowns in the team's 28-14 victory over the Washington Redskins. Gifford was named the NFL's MVP in 1956. Panelists Dorothy Kilgallen and Arlene Francis are clearly smitten by the handsome 26-year-old gridiron star.

Gary Carter 1954-2012 Gary Carter, the only man to catch 2,000 National League games, died today (February 16, 2012) of brain cancer. Carter was the face of the Montreal Expos franchise from 1979 to 1984. He was twice the MVP of the All-Star Game. (This Sports Illustrated cover shot is from the 1981 game.) Traded to New York in 1985, he also played on the 1986 World Series champion New York Mets. He had stints in San Francisco and Los Angeles before returning to Montreal in 1992 to conclude his career.

Mike Marshall SI Cover Mike Marshall of the Los Angeles Dodgers (shown here on an SI cover) was the National League's Cy Young Award winner in 1974. He finished third in league MVP voting as well. A screwball pitcher, the indefatigable Marshall appeared in 106 games in 1974. Thirteen of those appearances were in consecutive games. Both marks are modern MLB records. Marshall was a bit of an eccentric for his day. He was a student of kinesiology and nearly quit baseball after 1974 to pursue his PhD. He believes that proper mechanics can totally eliminate pitchers' arm injuries. He was also dead set against signing autographs--especially for kids. Why the reluctance to sign? Marshall believed professional baseball players should not be revered as heroic figures by children. (The Cincinnati Reds, the "establishment team" of the 1970s, loathed Marshall because of his no-autograph policy--and because he made the difference in the Dodgers winnng the 1974 NL West title instead of the Reds.) The scarcity of Marshall's autograph makes it valuable and desirable to collectors. More often than not, the rare specimens of it are written as "Dr. Mike Marshall."

Controversial SI Cover - 1955 The cover photo on the April 11, 1955 edition of Sports Illustrated seems utterly innocuous today, but it created a great deal of controversy in its day. Hollywood actress Laraine Day is flanked by 1954 National League MVP Willie Mays on the left and her husband, New York Giants' manager Leo Durocher, on the right. The photo set a precedent: It was the first time any American magazine cover featured a white woman with her arm around a black man. SI, which was less than a year old, was amazed by the hate mail it received from its readers in the south. One correspondent said the cover photo was an affront to decent white women everywhere. Another said it was an example of northern liberals constantly reminding the south who the victors were in 1865. The furor died down quickly. More than 50 years later Mays told his biographer that he had no knowledge of any controversy about the SI cover photo.

Willie Mays Apartment - 1954 This photo really is out of the past. It was taken in 1954, the year Willie Mays dominated the National League and would be named its MVP. It shows him in his small apartment in the Harlem section of New York City. The woman in the photo is his landlady/cook. It is slightly misleading, though. Mays was among the highest paid players in MLB in 1954, but while the Giants were in New York, Mays chose to live in Harlem as a simple tenant. When the Giants moved to San Francisco, Mays bought luxurious homes. (He also got himself into big financial troubles because his worldly, socialite wife was a spendthrift.)
