Kudos to Lipmeister on his latest Sox interview, and especially the wicked array of baseball cards posted with the interview, showing the slow evolution of Bart Johnson's hair from the short 'n' tidy look of the 60s to the Gamble-esque 'fro of the 70s. Funny stuff.

Question: Which stadium can be seen in the card posted on the WSI homepage? I think I know, but could be wrong...

Most definately JOKE-land
Many of the White Sox players on the '72 topps set
seem to be in road blues in the home of the Raiders
the Melton, Wood, Tom Egan, Mike Andrews, and 'Joe' Horlen
cards all have different views of the same stadium...

The hell it isn't, 3 levels, no UD roof, 3pole light standards
look at Horlen's card and tell me otherwise.

Topps usually had their photographers in NYC to photograph all the visiting team's players at either Yankee Stadium or Shea. I'm not sure why the Sox were photographed in Oakland in 1971 (for the 1972 cards).

Nice catch by BabyFisk regarding Johnson's hair. I deliberately ran the cards in sequence to spotlight his growing 'fro through the 70s.
:wink:
