When was the last time the Cardinals won the World Series?

User Avatar
At the time that the original question was asked (prior to the 2011 WS), the St. Louis Cardinals had last won the World Series in 2006 against the Detroit Tigers. They won in 5 games, winning games 1, 3, 4, and 5. The MVP of the Series was David Eckstein of St. Louis. However, the Cardinals again won the World Series in 2011 defeating the Texas Rangers in 7 games, winning games 1, 3, 6, and 7. It was their 11th WS title. The Series was noted for the dramatic game 6, in which the Rangers were one strike away from winning the WS in both the bottom of the 9th and 10th innings. Both times, the Cardinals erased 2-run deficits to tie the score, ultimately winning the game 10-9 in the bottom of the 11th on a walk-off home run by David Freese, who was also the Series MVP. In addition, Albert Pujols of the Cardinals hit 3 home runs in game 3, matching a WS record held by Babe Ruth and Reggie Jackson of the NY Yankees.

Where can you find information about a former Detroit Tigers player?

User Avatar
Well, if you want statistics, you can go directly to mlb.com, click the top tab that says stats, then go to drop down menu on the left side and look under historical stats, you can go very far back, you can look at the tigers as a team and how they preformed over 1 year or many, or you can look at any player's specific stats, and if that doesnt help, you should try searchin over google or some other search engine, some players have their own sites.

How can you find an older Detroit Tigers jersey to customize?

User Avatar
Except for the manufacturer and the MLB logo at the top for the neck (only on Authentics) the Tigers home jersey has been the same since they switched to the Doubleknit fabrics. The Road jerseys are a bit tougher to find. Majestic is making a reproduction of the 84 road jersey, but the font is too big, and the sleeve striping is off. To be honest, If you find an original (mad in that timeframe) you will be very, very lucky. Here's a link to a store that does an exceptional job on customizing Tigers jerseys www.detroitathletic.com also, please E-mail me with any questions you have on jerseys

There really were no farm teams back then. Players came from industrial leagues or semi-pro leages. there were minor leagues, but they were not affiliated with a team as they are today. They basically just sold their talent to the highest bidder.

How did the Detroit Tigers get its name?

User Avatar
In the last years of the 19th Century and Early Years of the 20th Century Detroit had a baseball team sometimes called the Creams or the Wolverines. When George Stallings became the manager of the team he wanted his team to standout so they wore white socks with orange stripes. Early references to the team include one by the Detroit Free Press who referred to the team as "George Stallings Tigers".

What is the value of Detroit Tigers 1963 yearbook?

User Avatar
The 1963 Detroit Tigers Yearbook with the cover picturing the team logo has a book value of $50.00 - $60.00 in near/mint condition. Condition is very important on getting anywhere near this price. Common flaws with yearbooks would be staining, foxing (yellowing), fading color, stains, creases, rips, loose pages, cracked binding, and writing on the cover.
