Baseball people in the background ... '60s & '70s

by theFalcon - 68 cards (Last updated on Jan 20, 2022)

11. 1964 Topps #470 Jim Bouton

Joe Pepitone (25) ... looks like spring training, probably in 1964.

12. 1965 Topps #76 Sam McDowell

This one is a mystery to me, but these are my best guesses:

The photo was taken in 1963 ... I think it is in Cleveland ... the guy wearing #17 is probably in a road uniform. It could be Detroit pitcher Frank Lary. Minnesota pitcher Camilo Pascual is another possibility. Boston's Dick Radatz also wore 17, but the guy in the card doesn't look big enough to be him. No on on the Yankees wore #17 in 1963. If I'm wrong and McDowell and #17 are on the same team, then it would be Mike de la Hoz.

13. 1966 Topps #464 Larry Bearnarth

Ed Kranepool (7) ... looks like spring training in 1965 or 1966.

14. 1966 Topps #478 Tony Gonzalez

John Herrnstein (22) in 1964 or 1965, probably at Shea Stadium.

15. 1967 Topps #532 Jim Hicks

John Romano (5) at Yankee Stadium in 1965 or 1966.

17. 1968 Topps #69 Tom Tresh

Coach Frank Crosetti (2) at spring training in 1967 or earlier.

18. 1968 Topps #226 Jimmie Price

Johnny Podres (22) at Yankee Stadium in 1967.

19. 1968 Topps #452 Jesus Alou

Jack Fisher (22) at the Polo Grounds in 1963.

20. 1969 Topps #390 Bill Freehan

Not sure ... if the pic was taken in 1967, then #51 is batting coach Wally Moses at Yankee Stadium ... or it could be coach/mgr. Bob Swift if the pic was from 1964-66.

Yeah, I don't need to see a #8 to identify Yogi, LOL.

Cool Concept! I don't know haw modern you want to get in the future (since this says 60s & 70s), but here's a couple off the top of my head: (w/ John Cangelosi) (w/ Ellis Burks)

These are action shots, but there are a lot of cool cards featuring an out at 2nd, so that could also be a concept. Just a couple ideas that you could take or leave.

I'm adding about five cards at a time, which is enough work for me ... add in action cards from the '70s and I'll be doing this forever ... a separate list of action-only cards from the 60's and '70s would be more manageable in scope if anyone wants to take a crack at it ... here's a Pete Rose I discovered recently:
