Who wouldn't like a nice Shag now and then...

For anyone interested in learning more about Shag, here's the link to his SABR bio: http://sabr.org/bioproj/person/022eb7f7

Val, David, and Rhett are correct--He was a major sports figure, especially as a coach in both baseball and football. He has the same collecting crossover appeal as Greasy Neale, although Shag never won a World Series.

Happy holidays,
Mike

+1, Michael is right based on the collections of these two cards. I also think his later career contributed somewhat to the value, he was quite a figure...

Thanks, Val. The article clarifies a matter in Shaughnessy's bio. I had previously learned from brief bios on the net that Shag had coached football at Washington and Lee, my alma mater. Yet, the W&L website did not show him listed among its head coaches. Turns out, he coached freshman football, circa 1910.

Just looking over a few threads and have to agree with this.
Love the colors and the image....and the rarity of it.

Thanks guys, almost a complete set now, I have two. Should take about 40-50 more years. Shag is my favorite, if you can't tell.
