Field Guide to 1967
– We celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love and all things baseball and rock from 1967. The 1967 MLB season featured the Impossible Dream Boston Red Sox, led by Triple Crown winner Carl Yastrzemski. The Red Sox ultimately faced the Bob Gibson and Orlando Cepeda-led St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series. While the year in music was largely dominated by the release of The Beatles’ Sgt. Peppers, we discuss some other popular, though overshadowed albums from the year, including LPs by Love, Procol Harum and Bobbie Gentry. We then share some favorite 1967 baseball cards.
