Doc Ellis Passes At age 63,
Hi lite of his career was a No hitter he twirled while later admitting
He was high on LSD
For those of you who are to young to recall LSD's hey-day
It was a drug of choice to get sky High
Today it's the card dealers drug of choice
Dealers take A hit of LSD
Wait a few minutes for it to take effect
Then go on Ebay
& list their cards with
Absurd Buy it Now Prices
Based on Prices I see on ebay
LSD is alive & well
Merry Christmas to All

Ellis really turned his life around,he was a long time drug counselor and its a shame that he is known for that. He had a pretty good career that gets overlooked,its not easy to get 138 major league wins in just 12 years

Doc Ellis

Doc was one of my favorites as a kid. I remember seeing him at a hotel in Anaheim when he played with the Yankees in about 1975. I was with a couple other kids and we approached him for an autograph. Just then, a gruff security guard stepped in front of us and told us to leave. Doc then steps up to the security guard, pokes his finger in the guy's chest, and says in no uncertain terms, "Don't mess with these guys ... they're my friends."

Tony, I agree there are quite a few eBay dealers out there who are doing some serious hallucinating. The same could be said for the folks who run eBay ...

Take a different approach. I regard the Ebay Singles Pre-1930 Buy-It-Now only search as a portal into a virtual card museum. They're not really for sale at those prices, they just have to put a price on them in order to "display" them on ebay. happy.gif

That's what baseball is supposed to be about.

RIP, Doc.

I immediately put all my Doc Medich cards on Ebay with quite reasonable Buy it Now's and they're not selling either. Baffling.

My favorite Dock Ellis story is the time in the 70's when for some reason or other he decided to bean every Cincinatti player he faced. He plunked the first three but Tony Perez managed to dodge four pitches for a walk. After the next pitch just missed Johnny Bench's head Danny Murtaugh removed Dock from the game. Sounds like the no-hit game may not have been the only time he was high on the mound.

The Reds perhaps remembered this when they bombarded Ellis in his only 1976 World Series start.
