Default The bunt thread

It's about time we had a thread about bunting. Nothing more selfless and all for the team than the good old deadball era standby the bunt. Share cards, postcards, photos, etc. that depicts players caught in the act of bunting. Bonus points if it depicts a Hall of Famer or if outside the deadball era. Here is a start (both not mine)...but note I already have bonus points.

Richie Ashburn drag bunting (circa 1951). Richie was fast going to 1st base......only 3.0 seconds.

I asked Richie this when I got this photo autographed: " Richie.... who was the fastest going down the line to 1st base ? "

Richie replied..... " Every year during the 1950's, the sportscasters would time Mickey Mantle (batting Left-handed) and I
with a precision stop-watch. Both of us did it in exactly 3.0 seconds. "

Warning! Do not put your fingers on the exposed side of the bat! This is not one of the best pictures ever on how to bunt... ;-)

One or two of these, Hornsby for instance, may or may not qualify as bunt poses, and no one knows what the hell Leard is doing.

A virtual bunter's paradise has been posted...keep them coming.

I especially like the 1939 W711 of Frey...I didn't remember any post deadball/pre-WW2 cards that showed bunters. And I have this card. Thanks David.

I don't think anyone has ever figured out what is going on with Leard, but I am pretty sure I have run into a few striking this pose on a crowded subway train before.

And this thread has inspired me to change my avatar...sometimes bunting is the best way to protect the one you love.

Brian
