         Eddie Plank --- 1915
   
                                                                                July 27-28, 2015     
He Was a Hall of Famer?


When this card came out in ‘1915, an
aging Eddie Plank moved from the
Philadelphia Athletics who he helped to
four World Series’ appearances (1905,
1911, 1913 and 1914) to St. Louis of the
Federal League.

With St. Louis the lefty would win his 300th
career game as a member of the Terriers.
Woof, woof. Plank would go 21-11 for the
first place St. Louis club.

The Federal League would fold following
the ’15 campaign as Plank stayed in town
for two more seasons to finish out his
career with the Browns.

Plank would win 326 games en route to
the Baseball Hall of Fame, though his
plaque in Cooperstown notes that he is,
“one of few pitchers to win more than 300
games in the big leagues” leading to the
debate as to whether or not his Federal
League stats should be counted in Major
League records.
