    On a Met forum there is an entire thread dedicated to singular spots on the Mets' training facility in St. Petersburg's old Huggins-Stengel field based on them being usual spots for Topps, or even for official Met merchandise and publications to take Spring Training photos of, and the evolution of said spots on the facility over the years.

    Was this taken at Anaheim Stadium? One of the greatest baseball cards of all time because it represents so much of what we want the sport to be. We want dynamism. RIP Dave Henderson.

    I wonder if you can find all the team mates of one team and see if the same people are sitting in that spot as well....

    The viceroy sign next to the scoreboard looks real nice.

    As you can see, the PG is quite Green in these photos. Maybe it was painted Green for the day, and then painted back to blue the next day!

    An article I have from the New York Times, published just prior to the opening of the 1962 season, broke down the updates and repairs made to the Polo Grounds. It states that the Polo Grounds were re-painted green, with the exception of a few office doors and enterances which were painted blue. I can pull up the article if anyone is interested.

    Well there are photos out there also that show the stadium in blue besides the postcard.
    Stay on topic.... we are talking about baseball cards with photos taken at the Green Polo Grounds in New York.


    You could start another thread with all the blue photos if you would like.... but would that thread even get to one page long?

    1964 Topps

    Here is a 1964 topps Carl Willey card with a photo that was also taken at the polo grounds. there were many photos in this set from the polo grounds even since the stadium was being torn down this year of 1964.
