CARLTON FISK and FRED LYNN
Two All-Star Red Sox are shown in this 16x20 black and white photograph.
Photograph signed: "Fred Lynn", "Carlton Fish". B/w, 16x20. The Boston Red Sox, who had won five World Series by 1918, failed to win another until 2004. They came heartbreakingly close many times, however, never more so than when Carlton Fisk and Fred Lynn were at the heart of a star-studded lineup which also featured such greats as Carl Yastrzemski, Jim Rice, Dwight Evans and Luis Tiant. They lost a 7-game World Series to Cincinnati's "Big Red Machine" in 1975, despite Fisk's extra-inning, game-winning homer in Game 6; and a one-game playoff loss for the American League East title to the arch-rival New York Yankees in 1978. Both departed, Fisk in free agency, Lynn in a trade, after the 1980 season. Carlton FISK holds the all-time major league record for games caught (2,229). He held the all-time HR leader for catchers (351) until it was broken by Mike Piazza in 2004. Fisk was AL Rookie of Year (1972) and a 10-time All-Star. Centerfielder Fred LYNN began his career with the Boston Red Sox (1974-1980). Lynn won the MVP and Rookie of the Year Awards in 1975, the first time a player had won both in one year. While playing for the team (1981-1984), Lynn was named MVP of the 1982 American League Championship series, the first player from the losing team ever selected. He later played for the Baltimore Orioles (1985-1988), the Detroit Tigers (1988-1989) and the San Diego Padres (1990), was on nine consecutive All-Star teams (1975-1983) and earned four Gold Gloves (1975, 1978, 1979, 1980). Fisk, who finished his career with the Chicago White Sox, entered the Hall of Fame in 1980. Lynn, plagued by injuries and missing the hitter-friendly Fenway Park, failed to reach the Cooperstown destination his early career had seemed to promise. Fine condition.
