I was recently contacted by the great-grandson of Buster Ross, who spent a brief period with the Red Sox in the mid-late 1920s. He's a college student attempting to locate and perhaps purchase some baseball memorabilia associated with his great grandpa. Apparently only a couple of photos and some photocopied box scores are about all they have. Can anyone be of help?

He will be pleased to find out that Chester Franklin (Buster) Ross was pictured in 3 different mid-1920's Cuban baseball card sets. Finding one of the cards will pose a problem, but if one has patience they may eventually be able to find them.

Cards issued of Buster Ross:
1923/24 Billiken
1924 Diaz #43 (Only card issued as a Major Leaguer)
1923/24 Tomas Gutierrez #60


This image was taken from Ryan's website (I hope he doesn't mind), not a huge photo but you take what you can get.
