Red Sox 1988 spring training program has a very odd cover

Tuesday March 10th, 2015

Some fine souls on the internet have dug up the 1988 spring training program for the Boston Red Sox, and while it depicts a very confusing scene, it is definitely from 1988.

The cover instructs Red Sox fans to catch "Autograph Fever" and then depicts a Red Sox player flirting with a lady in a bathing suit and ignoring a child waiting for an autograph, which is an odd message to send to your fans.

The best part of this keepsake though is that its owner appears to have gotten it signed by Red Sox great Ted Williams, who must have found a way to avoid the ladies in bathing suits at the team facilities distracting players from interacting with fans.
