New Sheldon Sketches!

Yesterday, August 16, 2010 was the 90th anniversary of Carl Mays fateful pitch that did in Ray Chapman back on August 16, 1920.  Because of the tragedy of that one pitch, new baseballs were put into play after they got dirty which in turn ruined the pitching trade for those who were referred to as spitballers.

To commemorate this monumental event in baseball history, Monty Sheldon created two sketch cards.  One of Mays and one of Chapman.  They look really good, and you can check out his auctions here.
