1933 Goudey ('83 Galasso reprint) #42: Eddie Collins, Boston Red Sox, GM

     In 1933, Eddie Collins joined the Boston Red Sox as their General Manager after coaching his former Athletics teammates for two seasons following his 1930 retirement as a player.  Collins was selected to the Hall of Fame by the BBWAA in 1939 during his fourth year on the ballot, earning 77.7% of the total vote.  He held the GM position with the Red Sox until 1947, and then passed away from a heart condition in 1951 at the age of 63.
