Thank you Dan. Ditto to your stuff.

Here are a few more.

I know a photo but it perfectly combines prewar Red Sox with Postwar Red Sox. All 3 were great Of's for the Sox. Yaz looks great in this photo (1962) with Harry and Duffy.

And in honor of that great triple crown season, his 67 card.

And last but not least (for me), the signed photo is very near and dear to me. It was signed for me at the greater Boston sportsman show in Nov, 1967 and Yaz was on top of the world. I was 7 years old and my Uncle (along with my Dad) arranged for me to meet him backstage. I was a lucky kid in that my Uncle knew Yaz very well as they went to school (Merimack) and palled around together so he got me backstage and it was just me, Dad and my Uncle. We chatted for 20 minutes. You will notice the photo is torn because in a fit of anger one year after it was signed, I tore it in half. Very misguided but almost 50 years later, it is a great reminder of my youth and love for the Red Sox.
