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?

Sidd Finch Hoax 1985 On April 1, 1985, Sports Illustrated perpetrated a classic journalistic hoax as an April Fools joke. George Plimpton authored a feature story titled 'The Curious Case of Sidd Finch.' It was about a mysterious rookie pitcher who was the talk of the New York Mets' spring training camp. The story said Finch was a French horn player and part mystic, who, through studying yoga, could throw a baseball 168 miles per hour. He pitched wearing a heavy work boot on his right foot while he wore nothing on his left foot. SI got more than 2,000 letters, many from baseball fans who fell for Plimpton's tale. The teaser for the story was the giveaway: 'He's a pitcher, part yogi and part recluse. Impressively liberated from our opulent lifestyle, Sidd's deciding about yoga...' If you write the first letter from each of the words you get 'HAPPY APRIL FOOLS DAY.'

Tony Conigliaro Hard-luck ballplayer Tony Conigliaro of the Boston Red Sox was featured on the cover of this issue of Sports Illustrated from July 1970. Conigliaro was the favorite to win the American League's Rookie of the Year award in 1964, but he broke his arm in August. In 1965, at age 20, he led the AL in home runs with 32. Two years later, on Auugst 18, 1967, Conigliaro was hit in the face with a fastball thrown by Jack Hamilton of the Angels. The pitch broke Conigliaro's cheekbone and damaged his left retina. (The effects are shown in the SI cover photo.) The injury was so devastating that Conigliaro missed the entire 1968 season. He had good seasons in both 1969 and 1970, but lingering eye problems from his 1967 injury caused him to retire in 1971. Conigliaro attempted a brief comeback in 1975 only to retire again. In 1982, at age 37, he suffered a severe heart attack. Conigliaro was virtually in a vegetive state until his death in 1990 at age 45.

Mark Fidrych SI Cover 1977 One of Sports Illustrated's more famous covers from the 1970s featured pitcher Mark (The Bird) Fidrych and Sesame Street's Big Bird. The quirky Fidrych was a breath of fresh air on the baseball scene in 1976 when he won 19 games for a fifth-place Detroit Tigers team that finished 24 games out of first place. Fidrych was named American League rookie of the year. Arm and knee injuries ruined his career. By the end of 1980 Fidrych was out of the major leagues.
