    • Holy hell, those are some great pictures. Really captures that part of history. What a place America seemed, cigars being sold, beer less than a dollar. All less than 40 years ago.

      • So which one's Phil: The Lee Donowitz guy or the William S. Burroughs guy?

          What the world was like before it realized what it was worth to us.

          • Great Pics Mendoza. Thank you as always.

            Doesn't it seem like the roof top boxes were always empty aside from a few people directly behind the plate?

            Even in the game pictured below when they had a good size crowd, there was almost no one on the 3rd level.

            What was in those boxes and who could sit up there? Was that seating ever sold to the public?

            • Never should have been any color other than green.

                It really looks as if after the proposed olympic games, this would have been a Tiger Stadium replacement. It appears as if its on the site where Comerica now sits.


                The city of Detroit prepared bids for the olympic games from the 30s -late 60s. They came very close for the 68 games. Mexico City won

                Here is the entire set

                Not to offend, but history is history.

                  It's worth remembering that Mexico City also had riots - student riots with fatalities - just days before the start of the Olympics. Just about anyplace could have had them.

                    I didn't know that it was ever painted green, let alone as recently as the 70s. Def looked better than the blue with the orange/red seating of the 80s and 90s.

                    • Another observation,

                      the view from the first couple of rows of the upper deck in RF must have really sucked.

                      Having to look through chain link fence for three hours must have been migrane inducing.

                          This one must have happened not too long after a bra burning rally. Obviously it wasn't that cold of a day.

                                Not if you get up close enough, though.
