2016 1 oz. American Silver Eagle graded NGC GEM BU with MLB Cincinnati Reds Label.

Celebrate one of the oldest teams in baseball – the Cincinnati Reds – with this new 2016 American Silver Eagle with a special edition licensed MLB label bearing the team logo!

The initial on-and-off-again history of the Cincinnati Red Stockings began in 1869, during the reconstruction period after the Civil War. They are known as the nation’s oldest professional team, even though the original franchise is technically unrelated to the current Reds team we know today.

That team would get its start in the 1884 season, but did not perform well until they shocked the world with a World Series victory against the White Sox in 1919 which later became the infamous “thrown” World Series where the Sox admitted to losing on purpose. Ever hear the name “Shoeless” Joe Jackson? This is why he’s not in the Hall of Fame today.

Through much of the period from that infamous series in 1919 until 1939 the Reds would not headline the news, however back to back division wins would make them heavy – yet short-lived contenders. They won the World Series against the Tigers in 1940, but would not enter the fall classic again until after a Hall of Fame destined line-up was formed some 25 years later.

Easily the most impressive period of the Reds’ history was during the 1970s when “The Big Red Machine” plowed their way through six division titles and four league titles in one decade. Names like Johnny Bench, Pete Rose, Joe Morgan, Ken Griffey, Dave Concepcion, and George Foster made the Reds the team to beat year after year. They would play in the World Series in 1970, 1972, 1975 and 1976, winning the last two of those appearances.

After beating the Athletics in four games in the 1990 World Series, the Reds remained a well-performing team, but just couldn’t pull off another championship. Watch out, though…they’ve had post-season appearances in three of the last five seasons!
