    Click here to see some great old Yankees photos that Sports Illustrated is featuring on their site. (Hat tap to WasWatching.com reader “MJ” for the link.)

    I’ve never seen #16 before…but, it’s a classic, nonetheless.

      That #16 of Boss practicing his sky-hook a la Kareem Abdul Jabbar just cracks me up. He’s wearing tight 70′s slacks and black dress shoes and looks every bit his nearly 50 years here.

      It’s one of the few photographs that truly humanizes the pre-eminent tyrant of 1970′s New York.

      Nice find guys! I love photography in general, but I have a special place in my heart for sports photography.
