Thanks for the Link, what great memories scanning some of the issues. As a kid I never missed an issue of Baseball Digest and The Sporting News which was a strickly a baseball publication back in the day.

Thanks, that's incredible. I was just going through some "So you think you know baseball" with a friend

Baseball Digest was one of my favorite magazines as a kid. I still like to read it as an adult. Somewhere in my collection is a 1974 edition with Mets second baseman Felix Millan on the cover.

Sorry to bring back an old thread, but I would like to thank PaleHoser for posting that link. Even though I am a huge baseball fan, I suprisingly never knew about Baseball Digest until I saw this thread. I looked through the archive, and I was very impressed! In fact, I was so impressed that I picked up a copy of the latest edition for myself the other day! I think I have a new favorite magazine now!:D:

Great article on Dick Allen in the July '72 issue. I never knew the Phillies almost traded him to the Cubs for either Williams or Santo.
