I purchased that photo matted from mlb.com last year. My goal is to eventually get both Fisk and Seaver to sign it. Fisk is usually at the spring convention out in Rosemont, but Seaver might be tougher to get. Will be a fun challenge.

Even though Seaver's my favorite MLB player of all time, he can be a jerk. I guess if he's getting paid at a convention you could get it. Good luck. Oh, and Fisk is my second favorite MLB player. Frank's third.

My all-time favorite has got to be the Dick Allen SI cover of him in the dugout with a cancer stick in his mouth.

Mine is and until a title will likely remain Big Frank picking Robin up on his shoulder and heaving him up & down from joy. Close second is the shot of Frank & Bo dripping champagne in '93.

On a related note, that scene in the opening sequence at USCF always gets me going, along with Frank's HR shot.

3 guesses who's my favorite of all time......

I've always liked the aerial shot of old and new Comiskey standing side by side.

I see it all the time in sports collectible stores but I haven't gotten it yet.

I like the newspaper front pages from 1959 that go something like:

SOX WIN PENNANT!

UNKNOWING CITIZENS FREAKED OUT BY AIR RAID SIREN!

That must have been a wild night... :cool:

After the Sox won the West in 93, SportsChannel had a station promo that sent chills up my back ...

Set to the tune of Tom Petty's "Don't Come Around Here No More," they showed a black-and-white, slow motion replay of Ron Karkovice jumping into the arms of Kirk McCaskill, and it fades to black with the words "SportsChannel: Home of Champions."

Man that was awesome. Anyone know where I could get a copy of that?

The most memorable White Sox photo has to be the one of Al Smith getting drenched with a beer in the '59 series.

My favorite image was that of Julio Cruz scoring the winning run to clinch the Division in '83. After such a long wait from '59 to '83, man I was deliriously happy and have always treasured that image.

My most memorable image comes from 1977. Jim Spencer had just hit a home run. He is standing right outside the Sox dugout, tipping his hat to the cheering fans. It was on July 3, 1977 and the Sox were completing a four game sweep of the Twins. Spencer was a class major leaguer.

Cruz leaping on the plate to clinch the division in 1983. I was 14, and it was
the first time in my young life that the White Sox finished in first place. I had
become convinced that it would never happen.

A close second would be Ellis Burks running in the outfield, his arms out in
celebration after catching the last out in the 1993 divsion clincher. It had
just taken way too long to get back to the postseason.

Anybody remember the large photos they used to have in old Comiskey? There
were several pictures of them from the red pinstripe era. Two photos I loved
were Bert Campaneris leaping into home plate, looking like he is about to land
in the lap of Ed Herrmann, and a pic of Dick Allen taking a huge cut.

My favorite memory was watching the '83 team clinch the Western Division. My second isn't a favorite, but something I'll always remember was watching the telecast when Hawk started crying when he found out that Don Drysdale was found dead in his hotel room of an apparent heart attack.

The Fisk two for the price of one play took place two days before Seaver got win #300. It was the NBC Friday night game of the week and Vin Scully was on the call.

Juice Cruz stepping on home to clinch the '83 title is a big one in my mind even though I wasn't born til '87. Another one is Big Frank hoisting Robin over his shoulder after Robin's game-winning Grand Slam vs. Texas, 7/31/91.

Bo Jackson was my favorite football player, and one of my favorite baseball players (even though he played for KC). His hip injury while playing for the Raiders devastated me. When the Sox signed him, I was excited and hopeful, but nothing could have prepared me for a home run in his first at-bat!

I also loved watching him run around the park after the clinching game in '93, especially since he'd earlier hit what ended up being the game-winning home run.

My favorite Sox-related images both occurred on the same night in 1990. At the Wednesday night game against the Twins on the second-to-last series at Comiskey, my friend took a picture of my dad (the reason I'm a Sox fan) and I with the old park right behind us.

That same night as we were leaving, a father was with his son who was about five or six. As we all walked out, the father kissed the bricks of the old park, took his son's hand and said, "Ok. Now we can go."

Awesome.

With all the talk of the Slaughter photo, I'm surprised no one has mentioned Al Smith's beer bath photo in Game #2 of the 59 series. Both were among the most famous sports photos of that decade.

That is absolutely awesome. That would be something I would've done if I were older when Comiskey Park came down. What a wonderful thing you saw that night; you'll remember it forever.

I have that framed above my desk here at school...It's a pretty sweet picture and I get comments on it all the time.

My favorite image was the game Bo Jackson came back and hit the homerun for his first hit (which he said in advance he would dedicate to his deceased mom). I was at that game and still remember the crowd roaring as he crossed home plate.

If I remember the picture correctly it's Casey Fisk, his son.No, Casey Fisk is 23. The picutre entitled "Pudge and a Little Pudge" was taken sometime in the late 1980s, early 1990s. You can tell because he is wearing the most up to date Sox uniform.
