    Here are some classic Milwaukee Braves photos

    Phil Niekro:



    Bob Uecker:



    Eddie Matthews:



    Joe Torre:



    Red Schoendienst



    County Stadium 1953: Braves first year in Milwaukee. Don't let the small park fool you! They drew 1.8 Million fans that first year.



    Here's Hank Aaron as a Brewer in his final game as a major leaguer:



    Here's Hank at the dedication ceremony for the plaque marking where his all time non-steroid juiced home run record setting ball landed:



    Here's a photo of Hank from 2007:



    Hank was my baseball hero as a child. My parents lived in Milwaukee before I was born and attended many games at the old County Stadium. To this day, Mom can still rattle off the starting lineup of the '58 Braves. I grew up a Brewer fan, and nothing made me more proud as when Hank said that he wanted to return to Milwaukee to finish his career. Don't forget that the all time non-steroid home run record is still held by a Milwaukee Brewer! #755.

    That's Wrigley Field, Chicago.

    Ah, of course it is. Thanks!

    I'm intrigued by this photo of Del Crandall. Was that version of the classic "M" standard on early batting helmets?

    Great picture of Spahn, taken at Spring Training in 1956.

    Yes, I've seen that on more than a few helmets of that era. They weren't really precise. I'm not sure it was even a decal. It looks more like it was painted with a stencil.

    Great Spahn image

    Here's another, from the current Sports Illustrated online gallery - photographs by Walter Iooss.

    The attribution has to be wrong, though - it says "Hank Aaron | West Palm Beach, Florida, 1969". Doesn't make much sense for Hank to pose in a Milwaukee Braves cap years after the move, and he looks younger than 35. I'd guess a simple typo, it's 1959, and Hank's actually 25 in that photo.

    Three more outstanding photos from Flickr. Not the team itself, but people at the 1957 World Series, including the best shot of the old scoreboard I've ever seen.

    The woman looks like she might be Carlton Wiley in drag. If not, my sincere apologies to all concerned.

    OOPS. Sorry. A fine right hander was Carlton...and a future Met. The woman, now that I take a second look, is quite handsome with a terrific posture.

    Cool

    The classic Game 4, the Nippy Jones game, won by Eddie Mathews with a walkoff homer.

    Here's another cap logo variation. It's Don Kaiser, who was traded to the Braves after the 1957 but didn't apparently actually play a game.

    Look at the M on the cap they gave him - don't think I've seen this one before.

    That's new to me, too. Looks almost like a Greek letter.

    I don't know if anybody noticed it, but the Braves sported the 1948 uniforms last week in a game at Wrigley. Tim Hudson looked like he'd fit right in as part of the rotation with Warren and Johnny.

    Yeah, it's a beautiful uniform. The black tomahawk is so much better than red.

    And love the socks.

    I prefer the red tomahawk, but I love those socks. The Braves wore them for a while with the regular uniform a few years ago. Mike Remlinger was happy as a clam in them but Chipper wasn't, so...

    So... couple more years, and they can bring them back?
