I can't compete with everyone here on trivia but here is my pic of Casey Stengel. He's center, second row from top.
I just found this, having bought it on eBay about 5 years ago.

"What do you think, I was born at 60?", Casey told him. Wonder if Mick ever saw his T210.



1923 NY Giants [am not 100% positive but I believe Casey is in second row second from left]

Great stuff....thanks for sharing it with us.


My Stengel / Mantle story occurred when I was a teenager watching the US Senate hearings in Washington regarding Baseball. Casey "ran circles" around those phony politicians
in their daily sessions of questioning him.....Casey was amazing.

After days of Casey "taking them to school", the politicians called Mickey to the stand. And, Mickey simply said.... "I agree with everything Casey said" !

Hi BruceinGa

Really nice Boston Bees piece. I figure it represents the 1940 team.

Default Tuesday nite TRIVIA.....Casey Stengel.....plus, show us some of Casey's cards

And, here's his 1940 Play Ball card.


Casey's career BA = .284 (not too bad). And, definitely a clutch hitter in World Series play...…

1916 WS.....BA = .364

1922 WS.....BA = .400

1923 WS.....BA = .417, RBI = 4, HR = 2 (both were inside-the-park)

.

1948 PCL





Casey Stengel was once described as...."the most uninhibited ballplayer in Baseball". And in my opinion he
was a "genius" when it came to playing winning BB. So, how about sharing with us some more Casey stuff.

Ted, thanks. I really don't know. I was hoping someone here could tell me.
I'll do a little research this evening.

I'm fairly certain it represents the 1940 team. I cross-checked the players on it with the 1938 - 1943 team rosters of the Boston Bees and the best match was 1940.
