i'm looking for places to purchase world series and the parade photos. i've been to the official mlb site, and the sun-times site, but i'm looking for a few unique photos to bring to soxfest for autographs. the pictures on gettyimages.com are similar to what i am looking for, but it seems like you have to be in the press to order from them. i really like some of the pics from the tribune web site, but i don't think they're for sale. any help would be appreciated.

There's a gallery on Michigan Ave just north of Monroe that has beautiful photos of the post season games. Its called Bob Horsch Gallery 30 S Michigan

I bought a ND Stadium photo from there before, they have high quality stuff, IMO.

The guys I work with got me the Sox W.S. Opening Ceremonies picture for by birthday last Nov. I was really touched by their generosity and thoughtfullness.

Also on Scott Reifert's Blog there is an awesome photo by Ron Vesely (which also turns up inside the Sox season ticket brochure) called "First Pitch" You can buy it off the Sox website I believe.

There's a sports photo store in Yorktown Mall in Lombard that has some really great photos, especially of the parade/rally, that I haven't seen anywhere else. They have perfect shots of individual players at the podium holding the trophy. I just happened to be there Saturday evening when they just received a new shipment of different photos. I wound up buying 20. They're $6 each or four for $20. The store is located on the lower level near Penny's. You can park on the south side of the mall, enter through Sam Goody music store and the store is right across from Sam Goody.

Those photos at the horsch gallery are really nice and are easy to make...the frame is whats most costly because of the special matting.

Photo= $3.95
WS patch = $12.00
Sox WS Champions patch = $12.00
Frame = $38.00 w/matting

What is the photo size? 8x10?

Yeah 8x10. They're in a box on the counter located at the back of the store.

I'd also add that the photo store on the mlb.com website has some great ones, though expensive on the 8x10 side. Those are $15 and the 16x20s are a better deal at $30. They're produced with a thin white border, if that makes any difference to you.

If you're getting photos signed and framed, make sure to have them framed with UV glass and keep them out of the sunlight.

FWIW, I believe that the MLB Photo Store uses the exact photos from gettyimages.com. I just picked up the photo of Pierzynski jumping up onto Jenks after the game 4 win.
