That's a beautiful display, Dave. Even a non-Reds fan like me can envy it!

My only Reds item is a 'faux-vintage' Mitchell and Ness 1936 pennant. I won it in a contest and it's been in my stack of Orioles/Colts/NYRangers pennants ever since. But I hang on to it thinking that one day I'll put it up.

LOL...not likely but as abysmal as my Orioles are even a nearly sixty-year fan like me can get tempted.

I remembered my one other Reds item. Part of my first love, my publication collection.

Awesome piece, Dave! Not phony crap like those Ebbets Field "stoplights."

I was able to add the final piece of my 1936-1941 Reds scorecards set. Those late-30's - early 40's teams are my favorite and I find it a shame that the 39-40 team that won back-to-back pennants and a World Championship are always overlooked when it comes to great teams.

You have to think that it was quite remarkable that the Reds, being a small market team even back then, were able to assemble a team consisting mostly of players from their farm system and some low-budget castoff veterans, that was able to beat the Giants (back-to-back pennant winners in '36 and '37) and the Cubs (pennants in '32, '35 and '38), not to mention a plucky Dodgers team that would win the pennant in '41. Add in there the Cardinals with their bottomless farm system and the Pirates who almost won the pennant in '38.

Though most of the '36-'41 Reds are footnotes today, they had the 1938 batting champ and NL MVP in Ernie Lombardi, the 1939 NL MVP with Bucky Walters and Frank McCormack, the 1940 NL MVP - three straight league MVP's!

Walters also won the pitcher's Triple Crown in 1939 and led the NL in wins again in 1940. Then of course you had Vander Meer's back-to-back no hitters in 1938.

Anyway, the '36 to '41 teams are my favorite, and I'm glad to have a scorecard from each season now...

Default Thanks for sharing!!

What fun to see all the Cincinnati material! Here are a few pieces. There's Joe Morgan's visa application for the Reds' trip to Japan. Kind of an odd piece.

Then there's a letter from Bob Howsam the architect of the Big Red Machine. Howsam congratulates Warren Spahn on getting inducted into the Hall of Fame.

The third piece is a letter from then-Reds GM Warren Giles to Bucky Walters about his 1943 contract.

About three years ago I finally made a website for my collection. The links there for the players direct to their pages on the site. If you have a favorite guy he's probably got a page too.

It was really neat to see everyone's Reds' related material. Thanks for posting.

This is great stuff!

I grew up in Ohio...hated the Big Red Machine....watched the Carlton Fisk HR from a bar at my alma mater of OU....was the only person there rooting against the Reds.

Since they’ve fallen on hard times, I root for the Reds against the super powers of the NL Central.
