#348-341 Boyhood Photos

Another collection of 8 stars as youngsters....very good lot that includes three hall of famers  #341 Joe Torre,  #343  the late Willie Stargell,  #347 Tom Seaver.....the rest are 342 Wilbur Wood 344 Dave McNally  345 Rick Wise 346 Jim Fregosi  348 Sal Bando....maybe a bit more humor in this set....Joe Torre’s Godfather-like backdrop...Wilbur Wood’s Whopper....Jim Fregosi channeling his inner Myron Florin, or possibly the future Weird Al Yankovich....and Sal Bando's slight resemblance to Alfred E. Newman.


  1. Just now realized after all these years that Fregosi's cap is airbrushed in the "now" photo! Never noticed that before.

  2. I just found your blog and love it! 1972 was the next-to-last year that I collected cards until the boom in the late 80's. On this page, you have young Sal Bando card back for the Joe Torre card.

    I'm going to enjoy going through all these!

    Thank you!

    1. Thank you for nice words. I have the Bando back after the Bando front, but then reversed the back and front order on subsequent cards...I was trying to save some time in my photo gallery (card backs being before card fronts).

  3. I had Fregosi card. It's not a good effort.
