I am starting this blog to document in one location the history of all of the Street and Smith baseball yearbooks over the years.
If anyone is out there reading or looking at this has some old Street and Smith Baseball yearbooks they would like to part with please let me know.
I would love to look into each of them and see what the predictions were and then what really happened.
Thank you and enjoy!
Welcome to my new Blog!
Being a child growing up in the 70's and 80's the Street and Smith Baseball Yearbooks were always a must have for any baseball fan.
My first post is straight from my childhood. To this day I can remember seeing that photo of George Brett!
1981 Covers-First thing I noticed is that S & S did away with the side panel color. I like this much better than what they did in 1980. It allows the reader to see a larger image of the players. And they made the photo of the players overlap the Baseball title.
What a great cover! George Brett going for .400 that year, it was an exciting season.
Cover observations: Blue Title with yellow background (Blue to match the Royals?)
This was the only cover that I thought existed, little did I know that their were other covers for the same issue......
Ricky Henderson-Oakland A's
I really like how the header on the cover matches the A's yellow on there uniforms and the green fonts match as well.
Mike Schmidt-Philadelphia Phillies
Cover observations: Black and Red and White. Looks nice together.
