1938 Detroit Tigers Scorebook Coasters by COOLSTUB™
BEST STOCKING STUFFER GIFTS 2018!
Set of four premium 1938 Detroit Tiger scorebook coasters. Designed from an authentic '38 Detroit Tiger scorecard. The coasters are not only a bit of baseball history, but also a great conversation piece for baseball fans.
In 1938, Hank Greenberg, the Tiger's first baseman, hit 58 home runs, batted .315, and became the first unanimous selection for the American League MVP Award. The Detroit Tigers played in historic Briggs Stadium and compiled a record of 84 wins and 70 losses to finish 4th in the American League for 1938.
In 1938, Tiger games were broadcast on two AM radio stations WWJ with play-by-play announcer, Ty Tyson, and WXYZ with Harry Heilmann, a former outstanding player for the Tigers doing the announcing for the Michigan radio network.
Heilmann, nicknamed the "Slug" because of his notorious lack of speed and fielding ability, was one of the greatest hitters in the history of Major League Baseball. He won four American league batting titles while playing for the Tigers: in 1921,1923, 1925, and 1927. Heilmann's average in 1923 was .403, and he is one of only five American league players to bat over .400 for a season. His career batting average of .342 is the 12th highest in MLB history.
Robust and longer-lasting than ordinary coasters, COOLSTUB™ square wooden coasters come with rounded corners and an extra coating for added durability. Printed on quarter inch birch wood with sustainable water-based inks, our wooden drink coasters feature a mounted cork bottom to protect against scratches on delicate table surfaces. No white is printed which allows the natural wood grain to show through the ticket image. Each coaster will vary in wood grain patterns, meaning no two coasters will ever look completely the same. Our coasters are water & heat resistant. Easy to clean, simply use a wet rag to wipe them off.
