Mystery Photo Request

After looking more closely at my stack of mystery photos, it looks like there are really only four or five different games that the photos come from, in just two different ballparks.

That’s not going to make this game much of a challenge. So I’m going to ask for some help. If any of you have some old photos lying around of MLB games, that you either (a) don’t know the who/what/when of the photo, or (b) you know, but think it would make a fun challenge for others to figure out, please email them in to me at this email address:

mystery ATsign humbug  .com

I only want your own personal photos, that I would have the rights to publish. Please don’t send me copyrighted material.

Thanks!

1.  Do the other photos of the Angels' game confirm our conclusions about the one you posted?

2.  Yes, there are more pictures of the Angels vs. the Red Sox at Fenway, although only one with the blue unis.

4.  Check out Flickr.com for more baseball photos. You can filter your search for only Creative Commons licensed photos that are free to republish if you give proper attribution.

Flickr has 15,534 photos related to 'baseball' free under the most liberal Creative Commons license - free for commercial use with attribution. I'm not sure of Humbug qualifies as commercial-use or not - there are 41,098 photos related to baseball free for non-commericial use.

5.  That's a good idea, joe^3.

I think the only problem would be that most of those pictures would be digital photos of recent vintage. I'm hoping people have some old photos they have or are willing to scan, and send in. It's a bit more of a challenge when the year of the photo is a bit more random.
