I was wondering if any one can help me---I have searched high and low online for an 8 x 10 copy of a photo of John Danks pitching in the 9-30-08 black out game with no luck. I know someone who is selling 16 x 20's of the shot, but that size will not work with the photo collage I am trying to create.

I was hoping the vendor at Sox Fest who specializes in photos would have a copy, no luck. Does anyone know if these pictures are still available anywhere?

thanks!

I think I know the photo you're talking about. I think your best bet is to go to one of the sports memorabilia shows at the Rosemont Convention Center. The next one is March 19-21. There's one photo dealer that has a ton of binders. Just find the White Sox one. There's also usually some other dealers selling photos, too. My guess is you should be able to find a couple selling that photo.

I would call Plaques Plus in the Orland Square Mall in Orland Park. I'm almost 100% positive they have one.

They usually have a ton of photos but my experence there is they charge an insane ammount for them 10 bucks for an 8X10 is a rip off....

find out if it's photo rights belong to photofile. www.photofile.com (http://www.photofile.com)

then look for a card store that has an account with them.

This is interesting. Up until Soxfest, I only knew of one photo of Danks from that game (side shot from 1b as he's pitching off the mound).

However, during one of the seminars at Soxfest, Putz and Thornton were making fun of Danks' photo from the Black-Out Game when he was celebrating Griffey's throw to nail Cuddyer at the plate. I had never seen this until finding it earlier this week. Here's the "other" Danks photo from that game:

That particular store has so much cool White Sox stuff.

The side shot from 1B is the one I am looking for, but is the "other" photo availabel commercially anywhere?

I don't think that photo is officially available.

The photo is definitely a photofile image---but someone told me the min order to get photofile to run an image for you is 25 photos?

you can always request more type of photo.

This is not true. I have a wholesale account with Photofile. To order a photo that is not "in stock", you have to order 25 of that exact image. If it is "in stock", then you must order 6 of that image. You cannot mix and match different shots to meet the requirement.

Guys---thanks for all your suggestions. Plaques Plus Orland did not have the photo, but they directed me to their Chicago Ridge location and they did indeed have it. Was able to get a few copies actually :bandance:

Thanks again for all your help!!!!!

Not that it matters, but I am an autograph collector. I have the same wholesale account that any business would have, pay the same price, and purchase the same quantities.
