In 1967, on November 15, Triple Crown winner Carl Yastrzemski of the Boston Red Sox was announced as the overwhelming selection as American League Most Valuable Player. In leading the Bosox to the AL pennant, Yaz hit .326, belted 44 home runs, and drove in 121 runs.
Of course, it did not count in the MVP balloting, but Yaz kept up the torrid pace at the plate during the seven game World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals. His Sox lost the Fall Classic that year, but he hit an even .400 with 3 home runs and 5 runs batted in. It is no wonder that throughout his career, the baseball card and memorabilia makers loved to include Carl Yastrzemski!
