Big Red Machine

Big Red Machine

Cincinnati’s ‘Big Red Machine’ is my favorite baseball dynasty of all-time.  A 2-time World Series championship winning squad, the Reds’ line-up featured one of the most explosive and talented offensive threats in the history of the game.

As I continue to build a collection to honor that historic team, I will showcase it for you here.

Enjoy.

  1. Very cool collection! I just read The Machine a few weeks back and it was a great read. So cool to have a copy signed by Sparky.

  2. Wow that is awesome

  3. Awesome collection. I used to be a huge Pete Rose fan when I was a kid until I actually met the man when I was 12. Then the whole gambling scandal turned me sour to him. I still have probably over a 100 cards and many other memorabilia about Rose. I still have the collection because it took real effort to collect when I was teen before the internet. Last summer my family I took a vacation in the Midwest from Colorado and went to a couple games and the Reds Museum. Great experience!

  4. Nice collection of the machine. I myself have a Big Red Machine collection of signed Reds mini helmets. I have Sparky plus the starting 8 and Rawly Eastwick and Don Gullett for pitchers on minis. I also have signed 3×5’s from all 34 players and coaches that were a part of the team in 1975. Definitely one of the modern day baseball dynasties and well worthy of a place in anyone’s baseball memorabilia collection.

  5. Excellent collection even if I’m not a Reds fan! As a baseball fan those were great years and great teams.
