Overview

2014 Topps Series 1 Baseball Before They Were Great Relics Ted Williams ImageThe Boston Red Sox have a fan base as rabid and passionate as any in baseball. For years, they also had a World Series-sized chip on their shoulder dating back decades. Although the Red Sox won five titles in the first two decades following the club's founding in 1901, their victory over the Chicago Cubs in 1918 would be the club's last for 86 years.

Things took a turn for the worse at the end of the 1918 season, when star player and future legend, Babe Ruth, was sold to the New York Yankees. The subsequent championship drought has long been referred to as "the curse of the Bambino."

Despite their sizable gap in World Series wins, over the many years of the franchise, the Red Sox have showcased some of the game's all-time greatest players and notable Hall of Famer's, including Cy Young, Tris Speaker, Enos Slaughter, Ted Williams, Bobby Doer, Carl Yastrzemski, Carlton Fisk, and Wade Boggs, to name a few.

In more recent years, the Red Sox have used a combination of astute prospect development and savvy free agent signings to build their roster. Players making an impact on the team in the modern era include Jim Rice, Roger Clemens, Dwight Evans, Pedro Martinez, Nomar Garciaparra, Manny Ramirez, David Ortiz, Curt Schilling and Josh Beckett.

In 2003, the Boston Red Sox won their first World Series since 1918 and forever put to rest, "the curse." To reiterate that fact, the team went on to add two additional World Series titles in 2007 and 2013. The ensuing hysteria created by the team's 2003 victory put Red Sox Nation back on top of the baseball world. It also further cemented one of the greatest rivalries in sports. The Sox longtime nemesis has been the New York Yankees. The club's turnaround under the ownership of John Henry has put their division foes on notice that every season will be a grind to the finish.

The memorable history of the Boston Red Sox and its cavalcade of collectable players makes them one of the most premier teams in the sports collecting market. As a result, collectors have plenty of options when it comes to merchandise and collectibles for the Boston Red Sox.
