Barry Bonds

Weren't the original Killer B's Barry Bonds and Bobby Bonilla?

Bonds and Bonilla were two of the original killer B's. I believe there were more "B's" than just them, though. Sid Bream, Jay Bell, and Rafael Belliard were also part of those teams. I feel like I'm forgetting someone, though. Hope that helps answer some of the question!

True enough, although I'm sure this is the first and only time, Rafael Belliard has ever been called a "killer B' - maybe just a "B" would be better!

Steve buechele, wally backman, Stan belinda. none of them were considered killer b's though. It was just bonds, bonilla, and bream.

Postage and Shipping

What is the value of a twenty cent special delivery stamp?

Identify the stamp using a catalog. Special Delivery stamps will be found in the 'back of the book' as they are special usage stamps. This may involve learning about perforations, watermarks and colors as well as condition. The catalog will provide a value. The value is what a collector could expect to pay for a stamp in fine/very fine condition. If selling, most cases you would be lucky to get 75% of the catalog, unless it is very valuable, then an auction would be worth looking into.

The most common American catalog for identification is Scott's. Others are Stanley Gibbons, Minkus and even the US Postal Service Catalog of stamps.

Who did Albert Wagner marry?

I am sorry but I have found nothing concerning a wife of Albert (Butts) Wagner on the Internet. I even went onto ancestory.com and looked at some of the census records from the 1800/1900s. I was able to find the Wagner's 1900 census records that listed Albert as a 28 year old and single under the Peter and Katherin Wagner entry. I will continue to look. I did see, however, that there was a book published last year entitled Honus Wagner: On His Life & Baseball with the author being Honus Wagner. I found it on ecampus.com. I wonder if maybe there might be something in that book about whether Butts had married. I own Honus Wagner The Life of Baseball's "Flying Dutchman" written by Arthur D. Hittner. There is nothing in that book concerning Butts and a marriage or wife.

Who were the Killer B's from the Pittsburgh Pirates of the early 1990's?

The real "Killer B's" were Barry Bonds, Bobby Bonilla and Sid Bream. Jay Bell also got some mention but not initially. Plus, I think to be included among the real "Killer B's," a player had to have spent more than one year with the Pirates.

[edit]

Wally Backman was in there too. Obviously there was no formal listing but the team did use this in promotional materials for the 1990 season. That's why Backman should be listed but not Steve Buechele.

[edit #2]

Sid Bream was not a Killer B in Pittsburgh. He played for the Braves at the time.

[edit #3]

In 1990 there was Barry Bonds, Jay Bell, Bobby Bonilla, Wally Backman, and Sid Bream as well as a pitcher named Stan Belinda. Not hard to see where the "Killer Bees" moniker came from.

In 1991 Backman and Bream were gone by way of Free Agency.

In 1992, Folks might be surprised to know that Bonilla had left also (to the Cubs in free agency I believe); leaving only Bonds and Bell and the Pitcher Belinda. Bream, then with the Braves, scored the winning run in the Championship Series to keep the Pirates from going to the World Series. That was the end of "those" winning Pirates and, due to the Pirates decision not to pay to retain superior free agents, it was their last winning season.

By 1993 only Jay Bell remained and that was the first of their 17 consecutive (and still counting) losing seasons -- the longest losing streak in American professional sports.

What is a baseball signed by the 1971 Pittsburgh Pirates in an unopened original bag worth?

According to the collector's price guide "Team Baseballs," your ball is worth $650, but this value can be greater or lower depending on players present - in particular the inclusion of Hall of Famers Roberto Clemente and Willie Stargell - plus the all-important overall condition of the ball and autographs. Other key factors include type of ball (is it an "Official National League" ball?), whether there are any "clubhouse signatures" (autographs signed by ballboys, attendants, etc), and number of signatures present. Player autographs were often signed by clubhouse attendants, so authenticity of the significant signatures is still the main factor in determining overall value - particularly with regard to Clemente. Also, one should not confuse a hand-signed ball with "stamped" balls featuring facsimile signatures sold in stadium kiosks as souvenirs.
