Default Smokey Joe Wood

I had Smokey Joe Wood sign my 1910 American Caramel E-91 Series "C" card in the early 80's

Seemed Joe Wood signed everything else but pre-war baseball cards. Had himself a little cottage industry of affixing his seven letters to tickets, balls, and whatever. Nice work if you can get it.

For the record I had the autographed M116 reholdered by SGC a few years back.


The Red Sox prevailed over the Giants 4-3. Wood gave up 8 hits and struck out 11. It was after this game that he was reported to have said, "I threw so hard I thought my arm would fly right off my body."


This came from the bunch of Dr Steen autographed Sporting News supplements that were auctioned off a few years ago. Nice to have something not signed with a Sharpie.


This is a Lee MacPhaill AL ball which dates it to 1973-1983. A ball signed by Wood in 1912, if such a thing exists, would be my ultimate hobby dream item.

Interesting how he dropped the small swivel at the end of his signature. It must have been awesome to be able to meet and speak with him.

I LOVE that signed ticket. I picked up this Spring training 1913 signed photo from the Christie's auction earlier this year. Looking to sell it if anyone is interested. I would guess that this came from Woods estate based on the writing appearing to be that of Woods below each player, and signed/dated in the lower right hand corner).

Here is a 1910 Red Sox postcard that Joe sent to his mother from spring training in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Always thought that it was kind of odd that he signed his last name and addressed him mother in such a formal fashion.
