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

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



31. 1970 Topps #384 Gary Neibauer


Not sure ... if this is 1969 spring training, then #36 has to be Claude Raymond. If it's not spring training, then it could late-season call-up Oscar Brown. I don't think that is #35, which would be Phil Niekro.


32. 1970 Topps #410 Boog Powell


Mark Belanger (7) at Yankee Stadium in 1969.


33. 1970 Topps #428 Don Buford


Boog Powell (26) at Memorial Stadium in 1968 or 1969.


34. 1970 Topps #594 Jake Gibbs


My best guess is Thurman Munson(15) at Yankee Stadium, who was a late-season call-up in 1969. However, it might be Tommy Tresh, who was with the Yankees thru June 14, 1969 before being traded to Detroit.


35. 1970 Topps Super #12 Roberto Clemente


Coach Don Leppert (6) at Shea Stadium in 1968 or 1969 ... even from a distance you can see his usual cheek bulge.


36. 1971 Topps #59 Gene Mauch


It's a little fuzzy, but that sure looks like Bob Bailey (3), probably at Shea Stadium in 1970.


37. 1971 Topps #154 Cesar Gutierrez


Coach Grover Resinger (50) at Yankee Stadium in 1970.


38. 1971 Topps #162 Jack Billingham


Jim Beauchamp (44) in 1970, looks like Shea Stadium.


39. 1971 Topps #233 Larry Bowa


After much eye-balling, I think this is Johnny Briggs (12), probably at Shea Stadium in 1970. I don't think it is Larry Hisle.


40. 1972 Topps #51 Harmon Killebrew


Paul Ratliff (8), assuming this is not a really old photo ... looks like spring training.

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:
