the bottom paragraph of my last post has inspired me to look for slabbed autos of hall of famers and older, deceased players. while looking, i ran across joe wood. now if you don't know about mr. wood, you can check his stats out here. his career winning % is right up there with the best of them. sure his number were accumulated right before the live ball era, but he never started more than 39 games in a season either.
smoky joe, as he was known, had a pretty good season in 1912. he posted a 1.91 e.r.a. and 34 wins. he also threw an amazing 35 complete games and had 10 shutouts that year. hisautos can be had for less than the price of a blaster.
