Allie Reynolds (1954 – Bowman #113)

Alllie Pierce Reynolds (Superchief – he was a ‘Creek’ Indian) was a part of the “Big Three” of the New York Yankees (along with Vic Raschi and Eddie Lopat) during their World Series-winning run from 1949 through 1953. He was signed by the Cleveland Indians (1942 – ’46) and was with the Yankees for 8 years (1947 – 1954). During his time with the Yankees he threw a record 2 no-hitters in one season (1951) and pitched in 6 different World Series – he was 7-2 in those games. He was voted to the American League All-Star team 5-times, and had a combined total (Cleveland and New York) of 182 wins. I remember Allie as being the ace of the “Big Three”.

  1. Jimmy! Every day you surprise me with another unbelievable name of one of the greatest players of all time! I don’t know where you got these cards from, as they are not available anywhere to my knowledge, after all these years, and Reynolds would be in the class of a Kershaw to say the least! I know it is impossible to compare a player from the 50’s to a player 60 years later, just like trying to compare Joe Louis to Mohammed ALI-cannot honestly and do it fairly. But this Allie Reynolds was so good, he can be compared to any pitcher of any year. I am in awe of your collection and when we were 10 years old, we had no clue these cards would be worth holding onto. Amazing! If we knew the future worth, we could have saved 5 or 10 of ea and we would be living on Easy St! Thanks for sharing! PeteG
