As I’ve mentioned a couple of times before, many of the “In Action” photos from 1972 Topps were taken at Shea Stadium. Here are a number of examples from my collection…
I feel like I should know who this Met is trying to get past Bob Robertson… but I don’t. Any suggestions?
Hank Aaron does a home run trot at Shea… the sign behind Aaron says “Plymouth: Official Car Of The Mets”. Both Shea and Plymouth are gone now, for whatever that’s worth.
Maury Wills waits for a pitch; the catcher (#10) is Duffy Dyer.
Trust me; the brick wall behind Steve Renko is undeniably Shea.
At first I thought this next card had too little background to determine where the action took place, but then I noticed the Mets helmet at the very bottom…
Aside from the concrete dugouts, you know it’s Shea from the blurry Mets in the background.
