Rube Marquard (HOF)


John J. McGraw says “A famous pitcher with whom we had great difficulty at first was Rube Marquard. Apparently he had everything. In the American Association he was almost unbeatable. It was on that record that we paid $11,000 for him. I still think that the immense amount of publicity following that deal in which Rube got the sobriquet of the “Eleven thousand dollar beauty” interfered a lot with his progress. I don’t mean to say that Marquard was swell-headed. He was anything but that. It was nervousness over living up to a great reputation that seemed to upset him.”
