Stamp of Disapproval
That's one wacky batter on the new 1903 World Series postage stamp (SCORECARD, Feb. 2). Did players at the turn of the century really hold their bats wrong-handed? It's possible the picture is showing a lefty finishing his swing, but it would have been a pretty tame swing. Did the Postal Service strike out on this one?

The Super Super Bowl
The greatest ever? I beg to differ. In Super Bowl XXIII (left), between the Bengals and the 49ers, many Super Bowl records were tied or broken. With three minutes and 10 seconds left to play, Joe Montana took San Francisco from its own eight-yard line to the Cincinnati 10. Then, on the 11th play of the drive, with 34 seconds left, he hit John Taylor for the winning score.
