Some more additions to the scoreboard cards.
Hey, I'll make these all month.
Joe Shlabotnik of The Shlabotnik Report reminded me that there was a time when the Yankees logo marred the white patch where the slide show used to be, displacing the best logo known to man and the universe. This card must be added to the record.
Of course when the Mets played at home the best logo known to man and the universe went right back up there.
More about the photo used here below.
So if we are going to rep scoreboard logos the Jets have to get a card.
If this is going to be accurate I need to find a picture of the old "Jets in the helmet" version of the logo. I put that Jets logo there for the card (should have angled it). In the original photo that area was all black.
I found two pictures of Shea taken by the same person and tried to join them together. That sky needs work. I used this photo for the 1975 Shea (Mets) scoreboard because of the similar angle to the Shea Yankee logo picture. But because of the Longines clock, this can't be 1975 (I did fooshop it in on the card). I'm thinking 1978. Does anyone know what year the clock was switched to Elgin?
I really should have thought of cards for all these versions of the scoreboard. I loved that huge monstrosity. I thought that thing was a space age work of modern art. So thanks to those who commented on my omissions. It proves my belief that Mets fans are the best.
In the Shea poster I gave a lot of thought into getting all the variations in, so I really should have known better. I needed some additional information regarding the stadium before calling the Shea poster complete, and I found it at Baseballfever recently, so the finishing touches should be going in soon.
