Default 1940 Bucky Walters

Could have posted this grouping as a December pickup, but it probably better belongs here. Have been after it for a while. In my estimation, Walters is the best starting pitcher in Reds history, especially considering he did not take to the mound until his late 20s (27 I think). Although Bucky won the NL MVP award in 1939, I think 1940 was the better season based on the differences in his World Series efforts (1939 0-2 vs 1940 2-0).

The photo is a Type I Sporting News file photo. If I can find the right material, I will probably restore the Hershberger arm band.

Default Recent Vander Meer Reds photo pickups

Dave,
You and me both, brother.
I recently picked up this undated circa 1938 candid original photo of Vandy & Cincinnati Reds owner Powell Crosley. Condition is not ideal, but I LOVE the image.

June 15th, 1947 original action photo of Vandy pitching complete game win, career win #88. Photo was taken at Crosley Field. Great seats, eh?

Default Vandy

Scott,

Nice pics. The jacket Vandy is wearing looks more like 1938 than 1939 or 1940. If 1938, then no wonder his boss is all smiles..
