Love the powder-blue road unis and the blue caps. Nice posed stretch, too. I believe that picture was taken in Yankee Stadium. I also seem to remember having a card (I'm sure I still have it in a box somewhere) of Hopkins later in his career playing for the Royals.

How about a Gail Hopkins 'Where Are They Now?' article? I'd love to find out where some of the first Sox I remember (Tom Egan, Rick Reichardt) are at now.

Actually Gail Hopkins, if I'm not mistaken, has his own Physical Therapy Clinic in Hinsdale.

There is an orthopedic sugeon in Hinsdale with that name, but I'm not sure it's the same guy who played for the Sox.

The last information that I had on DR. Gail Hopkins was that he was the chairman of the board of trustees and a adjunct professor at Ohio Valley University in Vienna, West Virginia.

That is correct. I tried contacting him once or twice and never got a repsonse.

Hopkins' '70 baseball card was one of my favorites growing up. That's why I published it.

That card is so cool, I waited for months gathering up my money so I could afford to buy a firstbasemen's glove just like his. I still have it, too. I use it when I play catch with Pants.

:cool:

Classic stance by Gail on that card. The '69-'70 Road uni's were the best uniforms the Sox ever had IMO.

It is a sharp looking unie. Too bad the Sox were not so sharp those years. That's one of the great things about the White Sox: every era of the team's history has its own distinct uniforms.

Does anyone know who was behind the wild uniforms that followed in 1971? Was it an ownership decision? Did the Sox have a "marketing" department back then? Enquiring minds want to know.

That's the same guy! My friend had to go there a few times for physical therapy due to his torn ACL and I saw his baseball cards on display.

The "red" White Sox uni's were molded to show a change of direction of the team, a tougher look you could say. They were trying to be like the Big Red Machine in Cinci.
