Ebay Pickup - 1911 T-205 Orval Overall
As it turned out, Max wouldn't let me send him this card for free. He offered up an awesome trade piece, which I should be receiving very soon. I really enjoy sending random cards to my friends, and I had a lot of fun finding this one for him. I know he will enjoy it.
Overall (b. 1881 - d. 1947) played in the majors from 1905 to 1910 and 1913 for the Reds and Cubs. His overall (see what I did there?) career record was 108-71 with 935 strikeouts and a career ERA of 2.23. He was a very good pitcher for his brief career, winning 20 or more games in a season twice and finishing with an ERA below 2.00 3 times. His career was too short for him to be included in consideration for the Hall of Fame, however, an argument may be made for him.
Something else that I think Max will enjoy is that he will now own a baseball card that was printed during a player's career who actually won a World Series with the Cubs! Overall won twice with the Cubs, in 1907 and 1908. I thought that was really cool. I hope he does as well.
By the way, the card is a Sweet Caporal back.
