Official Spalding National League baseball, Charles S. Feeney, President. In 1976, the Reds won their second straight National League West title. They finished 10 games ahead of the runner-up Los Angeles Dodgers, posting an impressive win-loss record of 102-60. The Big Red Machine rolled on, first sweeping the Philadelphia Phillies in the National League Championship Series, and then (amazingly) completing a second sweep, shutting down the New York Yankees to win the World Series title. Among the signers are three Hall of Famers - JOHNNY BENCH (b. 1947), TONY PEREZ (b. 1942), and JOE MORGAN (1943-2020) - not to mention multiple record-holder PETE ROSE (b. 1941) who, had he not been accused of betting on the Reds as team manager, probably would have been inducted long ago. These two years were just the highlight of the Reds' remarkable run in the 1970s, which included two National League pennants and another two appearances in the league championships and three seasons with over 100 wins, and not to mention an average of 95.3 wins per season for the decade. As Reds Manager Sparky Anderson told the Cincinnati Enquirer in 1997: "I was 35 years old when I went into Cincinnati in 1970. When I came out nine years later, the guys had made me a star." Scuffed and stained in several places. Toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
