    The Yankee stadiums (both of them) look terrible, while all the rest are amazing. Anymore scoreboards you can post? I want to see if I can draw a few of them with some of these elements (i'm an ok drawer by the way)
    How many times has this happened to you?

      Why is the Shea scoreboard turned off for the Jets game? Did the Jets have their own scoreboard at Shea?

        It's on, just no messages posted. Plus it's a night game so it's probably MNF and no other game scores were on at the time.

              Ran this before in the County Stadium thread, but this is from 1970, first year of the Brewers, showing the scoreboard that was put in in the early 60s and stayed up thru 1979, when it was replaced by hte black and white replay board.

                  I have not been to every ballpark. I can from watching the sports news and baseball games on TV that my 2 favorite ballparks for this season are Dodger Stadium and Yankee Stadium.

                    Here's a 2006 photo of the Shea Stadium scoreboard showing a Jets-Titans contest (professional football) as one of the out-of-town games.

                      impressive. Any idea about the scoreboard from the last Jets game at Shea? (heard it was a riot!)
                      How many times has this happened to you?

                        Some photos of the pre-renovation Yankee Stadium scoreboards











                        Old scoreboard workers pre-1959


                        New scoreboard workers in 1959. Are they the same guys? Possibly, but older and better dressed:cap:

                          Of course not. Only football scores and topics are allowed in football stadiums, only baseball scores and topics are allowed in baseball stadiums. The same also goes for message boards.

                            : That's definitely the same guy in the back. Not so sure about the other one.

                              That's a picture of the Jets' first game at Shea Stadium (in September 1964, probably on a Saturday night). This was six years before MNF. Note that they had not yet even begun the practice of putting up temporary stands in the outfield area.
