BCM's Big League Auction
Now Thru Nov. 1, 4 p.m.
Reds fans and baseball aficionados, here's your chance to own three, personally-signed cards featuring baseball great Edd J. Roush!

Roush played for the Cincinnati Reds from 1916 to 1926, mostly at center field, winning National League batting titles in 1917 and 1919. He led the team to its first National League pennant in 1919, then on to the World Series, which was tainted by the infamous Black Sox scandal. Roush went on to play with the New York Giants, then back to the Reds for a final season, finishing out his 18-year career with a .323 lifetime average, 268 stolen bases and 182 triples Reds teammate Heinie Groh called Roush "far and away the best outfielder I ever saw."
 
The cards have been donated to Behringer-Crawford Museum by a private collector specifically to be auctioned to benefit the museum and displayed as part of the current 1919 World Champion Reds exhibit. They are authenticated and certified cards from the 1961 Fleer “Baseball Greats” series, the 1979 Upper Deck Company “Diamond Greats” series and the 2002 Upper Deck Company “Legendary Cut” series and are being auctioned separately through November 1 at 4 p.m.

The lucky winners of the auction will not only claim highly collectible souvenirs
of baseball history, they also will be supporting the youth of our community. Proceeds from the auction will benefit the museum’s education programs.

Lewis and Clark in Kentucky
Famed Expedition is the Subject of
BCM’s Brown Bag Luncheon Oct. 17
At the direction of President Thomas Jefferson, Captain Meriwether Lewis and his close friend Second Lieutenant William Clark visited Big Bone Lick in the early 1800s to gather the fossilized remains of mammoths and mastodons during their four-year expedition across the western portion of the United States.

Unfortunately, their initial finds were lost when the riverboat they were shipped on sank in the Mississippi. However, a subsequent trip turned up hundreds of fossils, which were then sent to the White House, earning Big Bone ‘the birthplace of American vertebrate paleontology’ title.
Lewis’ and Clark’s discoveries and the importance of their cross-country mission will be the topic of a presentation by Jim Mallory of Lexington, vice chairman of the Lewis and Clark Trust, Inc., at BCM's November Brown Bag luncheon on Thursday, October 17.

With more than 1,000 miles of the Lewis and Clark trek within its borders, Kentucky has the longest section of the trail in the east. Mallory, a past president of the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation, will give an overview of the expedition and discuss its Northern Kentucky connections. Mallory has a lifelong interest in history, focusing on the Lewis and Clark era. He and his wife Paula have traveled the coast-to-coast trail of the Lewis and Clerk expedition since 1985.

The lunch and presentation will take place from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the museum’s TOYOTA Education Center. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. Guests should bring their own brown bag lunches. BCM will provide drinks, dessert and discourse. Cost: $3 for BCM members; $10 for future BCM members. Reservations requested at 859-491-4003.
