I’m a sucker for stuff like this.
With a tip of the cap to @uniformcritic, check out this shot of the crowd outside Crosley Field during the 1940 World Series. Here’s Crosley under water. Here is Crosley on Opening Day in 1962, and here’s another from 1962 (I love that last one).
Also, here’s Paul Derringer, Ernie Lombardi, and Bucky Walters during the 1939 World Series. Finally, the always-impressive Ted Kluszewski.
Saw these shots on Twitter yesterday. Love ’em.
