The Curse of the Bambino is often cited as the reason for Boston's extended misery after their trade of slugger Babe Ruth to the Yankees in December 1919, but the Red Sox had already begun a slide of 15 losing seasons by finishing 67-71-1 that year. They eventually ran their non-winning streak to 16 with a .500 season in 1934.
