Vintage season photo packs

Here is something I've finally finished working on that some of you might find a use for... complete, full-colour 90x135 photo packs for some older seasons. I believe they are more focused than what we currently have; I chose player pictures that are as close as I could get to each year in question. When you open up the 1969 pack you are not going to see anybody with mustaches and long '70s hair. Every player is depicted wearing the uniform of the team he played for that season.

I did my best to accurately reflect team colors and logos for each season - the Pirates are wearing blue caps in 1947, and yellow-on-black in 1948. If there weren't any pictures of the player in the uniform of the team in question, I 'shopped them (well, GIMPed 'em) so they did. At the eleventh hour I realized I forgot to give all the Orioles orange bills in 1958 though

I did the vast majority of colorizations myself, although I used a few I found here and there online - sal1199's Elmer Riddle was the base for his 1947 picture, and some of simarc's 1977 photo edits made it into that season. I figure this is in the spirit of why we share and post our stuff here, so other people can make use of it.... but if anyone objects for any reason, I'll replace pictures by.... probably ending up colorizing whatever B&W picture had been colorized by someone else in the first place, I mean older seasons don't always have much to choose from

I actually began work on this four years ago but gave up because too many players simply could not be found, and my photo editing skills were not good at all. But after seeing the work done by members of this forum unearthing and colorizing photos I was inspired last year to give it another go and I finally got it finished. So this could never have been done without the dedication of all the people here.

There are fourteen vintage seasons here in total, consisting of: 1947, '48, '55, '58, '61, '62, '63, '64, '69, '77, '83, '92, '93 and '98.

They can be downloaded here.

Here's a look at some of what I did... if a player only had a minor league photo available I gave him the cap of the proper major league team he played for.

It took a looooong time to colorize all the '40s players but I did it.

If a guy's picture didn't quite fit into the 90x135 space I sometimes gave them some extra real estate, like Parnell and Davis here.

Everybody is wearing a cap in these sets.... there are no BHNH guys, to borrow simarc's phrase ("Big Head No Hat").

Okay, one last one and I'm done. Something I noticed about the 1958 Giants was their cap logo being a bit off in the Topps cards.... the artist must have guessed they'd be carrying over the Seals logo. I fixed them up to the actual Giants logo.

New season has just been posted, 1984: http://www.filedropper.com/1984playerphotopack

I also included a folder of team logo .png's for this one. Some logos have been resized and others have had backgrounds filled in, so hopefully they should display a little bit better than in some of the other logo sets out there.

Hmmm, looks like they're gone now; such are the ways of relying on file hosting sites. I just reposted those two here:

1970

1984

Ceej...

Look forward to using your work but I have a problem. When I go to dl one of the seasons my anti virus pops up with a warning.

Should I just go ahead and disregard that or is it possible that my pc has a virus that wants to connect to your dl or whatever? I'm not real savvy
on pc virus stuff but I've had enough to make me cautious.

My guess is that my Avast is just over reacting.

Any thoughts on this?

Hmm, so that happens with all of the seasons? I have Avast as well and that warning doesn't pop up on mine. If you want, I could try sending you one via email and see if that still sets Avast off or not.

Actually I only tried 58. Tomorrow night I will try a few others.

Hope it works out. Pics in the thread look superb. I will let you know.

I'm sorry. This time I tried to dl 1969. All went well again until
I actually clicked the dl button. Then avast popped up and broke
the connection and would not let me dl.

It did have a 'details' button so maybe I should have looked at that.

Guess I could turn off avast for this but again a few months ago I had
a bad virus problem. Spent some money and got it fixed so I'm paranoid now. : )

Hmmm, well, all I can think of to offer is try to send one via email and see what Avast does. Except for the Excel file in the '98 pack, the only file types in each pack are jpg's, png's and txt files, for what that's worth.
