During the first two decades of the 20th century the Red Sox were an American League powerhouse winning baseball's first World Series in 1903 and four more by the conclusion of the 1918 season. The addition of Babe Ruth to their roster would have otherwise seemed to assure further victory but an ill conceived trade by owner Harry Frazee, whose interests lay more firmly rooted in other areas of endeavor, shifted him from Boston to New York in 1920. "The Curse" was born and try as they may, coming close several times, the Sox were unable to bring a Championship home to the city which has long embraced them. A wild card entrant into the 2004 post-season, some (86) years later, they made quick work of the ALDS setting up what was sure to be a dramatic ALCS against their rivals, the New York Yankees. As faithful fans had long become accustomed they watched their beloved team fall back by (3) games, a deficit that no other team in history had been able to overcome. In what would become an unprecedented run, the Sox rallied winning four in a row and earned the chance to $60,000.00 ($50,000-$100,000) Closed to online bidding $60,000.00
