   Thanks once more to Ron Martin the first card has now been identified. This image was taken in the top of the 7th inning of the 1938 All Star Game at Crosley Field on July 6, 1938. Rudy York is at bat. Lou Gehrig is on first base, Joe Cronin is on second, and Joe DiMaggio is on third. The last two cards were put out advertising the sale of large offset lithographic prints of these scenes. The last one shows a game between the Reds and the Saint Louis Cardinals.

   These next seven cards that were published in 1990 showing some real photos of Crosley Field during the 1940's & 1950's. The images are not very clear. You will notice in the last card the Publisher put their name on a billboard, Service Printing.

   Taking the Field and The Scoreboard are actually the same image and, according to Ron Martin, was taken in 1938. The actual game was either 9/7/38 or 9/8/38. He was able to deduce this from the scoreboard which shows the uniform numbers for both the Reds and, the team they were playing, the Pirates were all double figures. 1938 was the only year none of the players on either team had single digit uniform numbers. The fact that the light tower was erected in 1935 and that the clock was larger in 1940 solidified the year. On the scoreboard the uniform number for the starting pitcher of the Pirates begins with a 4, on 9/7 Bob Klinger of the Pirates (41) faced Paul Derringer (52). On 9/8 Cy Blanton (46) faced Johnny Vandermeer (57). These facts plus the names of the other teams playing each other around the league on those days matches what the scoreboard says. Now is that some kind of detective work, or not?
