Sale Price $108.00
The Boston Red Sox pitcher signs the cover of a pamphlet for the 1988 Equitable Old-Timers Game at Fenway Park.
Pamphlet signed: "Jim Lonborg/Cy Young '67", 2 pages, 8¼x11. Pamphlet for the Equitable Old-Timers Game at Fenway Park on May, 14 1988. The information inside includes the rosters of the Red Sox Old Timers and the Equitable Old Timers along with the players career statistics. Gentleman Jim is mainly remembered for his gutsy performance in the 1967 WS, after a Cy Young 22-9, 246-strikeout career season. The tall and articulate Lonborg had compiled just a 19-27 record in his first two seasons before leading the Red Sox to their first pennant in 31 years. In the WS, he beat the heavily favored Cardinals to knot the Series at one game each. He lost the perfect game when he walked Curt Flood, then lost the no-hitter when Julian Javier doubled. Lonborg then tossed a three-hit, 3-1 victory in Game Five to give Boston a 3-2 Series edge. A Roger Maris homer in the ninth spoiled the shutout and Lonborg's 17-inning scoreless streak. By the seventh game and on only two days' rest, however, Lonborg finally gave out, losing a 7-2 decision. After the dream season, Lonborg was largely ineffective, winning just 27 more games for the Red Sox in the next four years. Fine condition.
