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

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



21. 1969 Topps #491 Twins Rookie Stars (Jerry Crider / Geo. Mitterwald)


This is a tricky one. George Mitterwald wore #34 in 1968. Can't be a pic from 1969 because the only #34 they had that year (Cotton Nash) didn't join the club until June. This could be 1966 when the Twins had two #34s, Ron Clark and Ted Uhlaender.


22. 1970 Topps #13 Jack Hiatt


Dick Groat (20) in 1967 at Shea Stadium.


23. 1970 Topps #52 Bruce Dal Canton


Dock Ellis (40) at Shea Stadium in 1968 or 1969.


24. 1970 Topps #86 Lum Harris


Orlando Cepeda (20) ... he switched to his more familiar #30 after the Braves sold Ken Johnson to the Yankees in June, 1969. I think this is Connie Mack Stadium


25. 1970 O-Pee-Chee #180 Tommy John


Coach Les Moss (35) at Yankee Stadium in 1969. Wikipedia is my source for coach/mgr. uniform numbers ... they don't list Moss with the 1969 White Sox, which must be a mistake as other sources have him on the team.


26. 1970 Topps #182 Dick Hall


Gene Brabender (32) and Russ Snyder (9) in 1966, probably at Yankee Stadium.


27. 1970 Topps #190 Joe Torre


Mike Torrez (48), probably spring training in 1969.


28. 1970 Topps #194 Chuck Manuel


I think that's Jim Kaat (36) in 1969 ... don't know if this is spring training or regular season.


29. 1970 Topps #273 Ralph Houk


Elston Howard (32) at Yankee Stadium, probably from 1969, but I can't see if Houk has the 100-year patch, so it could be from the early 60s when Ellie was still playing.


30. 1970 Topps #298 Ken Henderson


Frank Linzy (35) at Shea Stadium in 1969.

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:

https://www.tcdb.com/ViewCard.cfm/sid/1411/cid/251410/2000-Topps-37-Rey-Ordonez (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:
