Getty Images White Sox Photos (http://editorial.gettyimages.com/source/CFW/imageResults.aspx?s=ImagesSearchState|0|15|0|1|||0 |0|0|0|2|white+sox&p=2)

I like to look at sports photography in books, magazines, and on the Internet and I ran across this website and it contains the most amazing sports and news related photos on the Internet.

Has anyone else been to this website, or can you recommend any others? Anyhow check it out and enjoy some great White Sox photos.

P.S. So far my 2 favorites are of the one where Paul Konerko takes a close pitch, and the panoramic view of U.S. Cellular Field taken from the RF line Upperdeck on Opening Day.

Wait till you see Chicago Baseball Photos when Leo Bauby has it finished. Right now it's done through the letter K. He'll have 7,000 Sox photos including AP and UPI wire photos of game action PLUS audio and video.

Yes, Leo has some awesome stuff. I can't wait for the site to be finished. Many people here at WSI will be shocked! :smile:

Getty Images (http://editorial.gettyimages.com/ms_gins/CFW/home.aspx?pg=1)

Here is another link to the Getty Images page but you'll have to type in White Sox in the search box. There are over 400 pages of Sox photos that will pop up. I also found that if you skip to the end of the pages, there are some old photos dating back to 1991. Some excellent shots of Big Frank, Ozzie and Bo are among them.


I have seen the Leo Bauby Sox photo page. My buddy Soxwon sent it to me earlier this year. Needless to say I was impressed at the wealth of Sox pictures that this man has collected.


P.S. I've also heard Comstock has a lot of pictures up on their website but I haven't had a chance to check it out yet.

Wow, Getty Images is pretty amazing. Shame you cant pay a fee or something and get those pics without their trademark in the middle of every pic. Be cool to download those photos untarnished.

Leo's site is already great and it's not even half way complete. That will be the main source of Sox photo's on the net.

What's this Leo guys website address again. I remember seeing it on here earlier when it didn't have many pics, but I can't remember what it is. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Both of the sites are pretty amazing. I love the audio clip of Harry Caray on chicago baseball photo's.

In the Getty photos, if you do a search of "sosa" and June 2003, you can find the priceless photo that ran in the cub-times (or was it the cubune??) after the cork incident--the one where scammy is running in front of the bleachers and 2 guys in the middle of the people sitting there are giving him the double bird. Hilarious!!

I saw that middle finger pic.

Here's the winning home run sequence from June 2003.

Know how every Cub fan says Sox fans are more obssesed with the Cubs and that they can't stand Hawk Harrelson? This guy is at a WHITE SOX-TWINS GAME!!! :angry:

EDIT: Type in "White Sox Cubs" in the search box.

I'm surprised there wasn't a follow-up picture of the guy drenched with beer.

As far as current Sox pics without a watermark, I like Yahoo:

http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/teams/cha/photos?pg=1&cap=1

Gets updated daily, as near as I can tell.

Yahoo is good for that because they don't put their stupid name in the middle of the picture, ruining everything. But as far as clarity and quality, Getty is as good as it gets.

And for those of you on the AOL boards, the guy in the Yankees shirt looks like Nomads!
