Curt Schilling - Profile in Courage
I was a Red Sox fan back in the 50's, when Ted Williams was beating the infield shift, and Frank Malzone played 3rd. I even remember the Kid's home run to right field in his last at bat in September, 1960. Curt Gowdy was talking about the Curse way back then, and that was nearly 50 years ago! So like millions of other Red Sox diehards, I was thrilled when they broke the Babe's 86 year-old jinx and topped St. Louis in the 2004 World Series. I've chosen these two historic images, offered exclusively by us, which together tell the story of the Red Sox greatest season.
Curt Schilling — A Profile in Courage — This large, 18"x 36" framed display contains three 8"x 10" images. The first shows a close up of Schilling's ankle bleeding Red Sox red through his sock, during game six of the ALCS against the hated Yankees. In the gutsiest pitching performance ever, Schilling gave up a single earned run in eight innings, as the Sox continued their incredible comeback from a 3-game deficit with a 4-2 win. The second 8"x 10" has been hand signed by Schilling, and shows him on the mound shutting out the Cards in game 2, giving up just 4 hits. The last 8"x 10"shows Schilling celebrating with Pedro Martinez and David Ortiz after trouncing the Cards in the World Series, 4 games to none!
How Sweet It is! — In this large 16"x 20" framed piece, firebrand captain Jason Varitek leaps into closer Keith Foulke's arms just seconds after the Sox closed out the Cards to win Boston's first World Series in 86 years! Hand signed by Jason Varitek. All photos are double matted and wood-framed under plexiglass.
