• The Look Of The 1960′s Yankees

    Posted by on December 30th, 2007 · Comments (10)

    For Christmas this year, as part of a gift, my wife’s aunt gave me a 1978 TCMA Stars of the 1960’s Baseball Card Set. It’s been fun flipping through the images on those cards. Here’s some Yankees – see if you can name them. (Click on the thumbnails to enlarge the photos.)

    The Yankees had a different look in the 1960′s huh?

    From the same set, here’s three guys who went on to manage the Yankees. One of the faces you can’t help but know. But, how about the other two?

    Have fun guessing. I’ll post the answers to “Who’s Who?” in the comments section, to this entry, tomorrow.

      No idea (except Torre, of course).
      Mike Hegan? Clete Boyer?

      I know that’s Dallas Green as a Phillie. Can’t really place the other player; is it Billy Martin? I would say so, given that he’s the only guy that managed the Yanks that played for the Indians (well, he and Bob Lemon, but that doesn’t look like Lem)…

      Billy and Lem weren’t the only ones. That’s Dick Howser.

      Here’s the answers:

      Upper Left: Hal Reniff
      Upper Right: Phil Linz
      Bottom Left: Billy Cowan
      Bottom Right: Jim Bouton

      Mgrs: Yup, Howser, Torre and Green.

      Linz doesn’t look like he was using PEDs, for sure.

      Linz doesn’t look like he was using PEDs, for sure. My first thought too – look at how skinny these guys look

      Thats always my first thought when browsing through my pre 80′s baseball cards. Look at the physics on these guys. All of them. They look like real human beings that you see on the streets and work with. You dont see a single one who looks like they are hulked out. Today the obvious is so obvious, its no longer obvious.
