Bill Buckner Featured Card of the Week

Everyone’s favorite Red Sox player is this week’s featured card of the week. In the 1986 World Series against the Mets, Bill Buckner let Mookie Wilson’s chopper to first trickled under his glove and the Mets went on to take the World Series.

Buckner was the man every Red Sox fan blamed for continuing the “Curse of the Bambino.”

Until the Sox finally broke the “Curse” in 2004, Buckner was a name nobody in New England wanted to hear.

Yankees fans used the name to their advantage, and some some still do.
