Old Red Sox Card - Collins McCarthy
In the mail the other day arrived this Collins-McCarthy card of Sam Agnew. It's in really bad shape, but who cares? Just the fact that it still exists after 100 years is amazing. Agnew played for the Red Sox from 1916 until 1918. He didn't see action in the 1916 World Series, but he did get nine at bats in the infamous 1918 Series. (collecting zero hits). Before there was a Mendoza line was there an Agnew line? His career batting average was .204. Is batting your weight a good thing? In his years with the Sox, Agnew batted just over his weight.
