Shea Stadium: Where The Action Is!!!!!!

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.

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.
