Thomas Francis Aloysius Carey, known to his pals as Scoops, was quite a jokester. He played 8 seasons at the Show from 1935 - 1946 for the Brownies and Boston Red Sox. Tom started the âe~46 World Series season with the BoSox, but alas was released in July. In the midst of all that, he was a starter for the Hollywood Stars of the old Pacific Coast League in 1938.The National Chicle Company of Boston issued this innovatively interactive 192-card set -- one of the first to use die-cuts so the players could stand up. Thus, a lot of the cards got thrashed and trashed, making high-grade cards a bit of a rarity.
