Default Pie Traynor cards and memorabilia are awesome

I really like my 1935 "Diamond Stars" Pie Traynor.

Do you have any Pie Traynor cards or memorabilia to share?

Don't have any of his stuff, but when I was growing up, he was the third baseman on most "All-Time All-Stars" teams, as in the book "Big-Time Baseball."

Here's a sweetie pie:

Hi Hank. Hope you are well. That's amazing, my mother bought that book for me in 1960 or so. I still have it and pull it out from time to time. I spent hours reading the anecdotes and factoids. I was just recounting the other day to someone that, as of the writing of that book, Nick Altrock was the only pitcher to be credited with a win without throwing a pitch. I never forgot reading that. I think it's been done since.

I apologize to the OP for taking the thread on a little detour.

I recently sold a Pie Traynor side written game used bat. This is all the more rare because Traynor is infamous for never ordering bats of his own, instead he constantly "borrowed" bats from others. He bragged about never placing a bat order of his own over like the last 15 years of his career or something like that. So a sidewritten bat with his name is one of the only ones that can 100% be linked to him.











Also, and I say this as a lifetime Pittsburgh Pirates fan, Traynor is one of the least Hall Of Fame worthy players enshrined in Cooperstown.

I don't have any Traynor items, but I can talk about him a little bit.

IIRC he had a sterling defensive reputation, and was a big star in his day. History has not been so kind to him. Defensive measures are always dicey, and the older they are the dicier they get, but our best attempts to quantify his defense has it come out looking not good. A bunch of 100 RBI seasons probably helped his reputation, but having Paul (and to a lesser extent Lloyd) Waner in the line up probably helped with that. (Grantham too.)

A beneficiary of the inflated offensive numbers of his time, I alway thought it curious that he was chose for the Sporting News all time team in the 1976 Topps set. One of these things is not like the others...
