From the Vault -- Pictures from Wrigley 4 -- Who's on First?

Back in the day I went to a number of Cubs games with my Canon FTb equipped with a telephoto lens.

The camera looked like this:

The lens looked something like the one below.  It's a fixed focal length of 400 mm, no zoom.  

The whole setup was very heavy and cumbersome.  

After all these years I thought it would be fun to share some of my pictures here. Keep in mind that this was back in the days of film and the photos were scanned on my $50 scanner.  Hopefully they look OK.  Click to enlarge them. 

Ok, for this post let's change games.  We started at first base last time so let's do it again.


  1. Billy Buck!! Any idea on the date of the game? A quick scan of baseball-reference gave me a few dates in 1978, May 24, June 30 or July 2. My money would be on May 24 since Harrelson is wearing sleeves.

  2. I'm not sure. I'll post more pics, though. Maybe there'll be more clues. (I'm not being Koyie --I mean coy.) I really don't know.
