Posted By: <b>bobw</b><p>I posted this topic on another board a few months ago and thought it would be worthwhile to add it to this board too.<br /><br />I love old baseball photos as well as cards and found that Corbis and Getty had alot of the photos that Topps, Fleer and Bowman used for their cards.<br /><br />Here are a few:<br /><br /><img src="http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o186/bobw_photos/1951BowmanCampy.jpg"><br /><img src="http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o186/bobw_photos/1951BowmanCampy1.jpg"><br /><br /><img src="http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o186/bobw_photos/1956ToppsMantleBackground.jpg"><br /><img src="http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o186/bobw_photos/1956ToppsMantle.jpg"><br /><br /><img src="http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o186/bobw_photos/1952MickeyMantle.jpg"><br /><img src="http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o186/bobw_photos/1952MickeyMantle1.jpg"><br /><br /><img src="http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o186/bobw_photos/195631HankAaron1.jpg"><br /><img src="http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o186/bobw_photos/195631HankAaron2.jpg"><br /><br /><img src="http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o186/bobw_photos/1956150DukeSnider.jpg"><br /><img src="http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o186/bobw_photos/1956150DukeSnider1.jpg"><br /><br /><img src="http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o186/bobw_photos/1958Topps418.jpg"><br /><img src="http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o186/bobw_photos/1958Topps4181.jpg"><br /><br />

Posted By: <b>Ted Zanidakis</b><p>One of the most effective "one-two" punches in the post-war BB scene was Allie Reynolds starting and Joe Page finishing.<br />Especially, in the 1947 and 1949 seasons. Page consistently could come into the game in the 6th or 7th innings and totally<br /> shut down formidable opposing teams such as the Red Sox or the Dodgers.<br /><br />A 6:3 tall Southpaw from the mountains of Pennsylvania, Joe Page was the greatest relief pitcher I ever saw (over a short span).<br /><br />TED Z<br /><br /><img src="http://www.freephotoserver.com/v001/tedzan/alliereynjoepagephoto.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Chris Counts</b><p>Here's an photo that looks strikingly familiar to one of the most famous baseball card images. What is remarkable is that this image dates from 1946, seven years before it showed up on the Bowman card, which looks like it was taken just moments before or after ...<br /><br /><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e278/ccmcnutt/89a9_1.JPG.jpg"><br /><br /><img src="http://i41.photobucket.com/albums/e278/ccmcnutt/reese1.jpg">

Posted By: <b>bobw</b><p>I remember hearing that it was Don Zimmer sliding under Reese on that card, but since that Sunday newspaper section is from 1948, that would eliminate Zimmer as the sliding player.
