1946 Remar Bread Wally Westlake. I think.

I mean...Chuck Stevens is the oldest living player but wasn't in a card set until 1952.

I'm jealous! In all seriousness though, the red sox did a great job organizing that event, everything was amazing: players, music and all. If I could I would buy advance tickets to 150th celebrations that might happen in 2051 and 2062.

Thanks for sharing!
It is sad seeing all the players aging, for the sox we have seen an entire generation of players retire recently, I'm not sure how many players we have left from our 2007 championship team. I'm not very old but I still "reminisce" about when Pedroia was the young guy of the team. I assumed the players were filming or photographing Mr. Doerr, Mr. Pesky and others, I might be wrong. I needed an excuse to watch it again anyway.

I could be wrong, but is he the last of the prewar HOFers?
Yes, Red Schoendienst is now the oldest HOFer debuting in '45. We still have Chuck Stevens and Fred Caligiuri as our last pre-war ballplayers.

I had the opportunity to meet him and used to "correspond" with him regularly during my heavy ttm days, what a Prince of a guy.
