  • Runningshoes presents Vintage Red Sox Photographs.

    I'm going to try to post only good quality, rarely seen photographs in this thread with a little biographical information about the lesser known players.

    You probably won't see anything post 1970 in here unless it's a really good photo and I won't be posting more than one or two per day.

    Feel free to do the same.

    Jackie Jensen 1955

    The Sox wore an armband that year to honor teammate Harry Agganis who died June 28.

      Earl Webb. Right Fielder that played from 1925 to 1933 (7 seasons) for the Red Sox, Giants, Cubs, Tigers and White Sox. Set the all time single season doubles record at 67 in 1931 while in a Red Sox uniform which still holds today. Batted .323/.385/.523 and .333/.404/.528 in his 2 full seasons with the Red Sox (also played part of 1932 with the Red Sox)

              Smokey Joe Wood. A great pitcher for the Boston Red Sox. Is 4th all time in era at 2.03. In 1912 he had a 34-5 record. But he got hurt in 1913 but still played through the pain for 2 more good seasons. After he played as an outfielder for the Indians 1917-1919. He later coached at Yale.

                    Jim Lonborg and Yaz 1967

                    I actually have this one autographed by Lonborg.

                          You're welcome.

                          I have the same one on mine.

                            What a smile YAZ has!
                            A lot of people say this honor validates my career, but I didn't work hard for validation. I didn't play the game right because I saw a reward at the end of the tunnel. I played it right because that's what you're supposed to do, play it right and with respect. If this validates anything, it's that learning how to bunt and hit and run and turning two is more important than knowing where to find the little red light at the dug out camera. - Ryne Sandberg

                              Yaz in Tokyo 1973.

                              Yaz hit the very first home run I ever saw at a game in 1978. It was also my first game. Jim Rice went deep as well.
