I Came across this FRAMED photo of 1975 World Series Photo of the Big Red Machine. I have searched and searched to find an EXACT COPY of this Photo - but to no avail.
I shows 10 Cincinnati Reds in the picture. They are in order
1975 World Series - The Big Red Machine
#10 Sparky Anderson, #14 Pete Rose, #30 Ken Griffey Sr., #8 Joe Morgan,
#24 Tony Perez, # 22 Dan Driessen, #15 George Foster, # 5 Johnny Bench,
#20 Cesar Geronimo, #13 Dave Concepcion
There are similar photos but they either show the back of the players - or they do not have Dan Driessen and Sparky Anderson in the photo.
See picture #1 - It has 8 players as #10 Sparky Anderson and #22 Dan Dreissen are not in the picture.
Picture number # 2 is the picture in question - it has been cropped to show Sparky Anderson and Dan Driessen - who you will note are missing from the first rather commonpicture . Other than the addition of Sparky Anderson and Dan Driessen the photos are almost identical in every way.
I Love the picture - but not sure if it is an original photo or a copy, I hate to tear into the paper on back of the frame just to find out if it is an original photo or if a larger matting job would have allowed a full view of Sparky Anderson.
If anyone has ever seen this EXACT photo #2 and can share it or how to view it- that would be great.
I can tear off the backing of the frame to determine if mine is an original photo - but am hoping that will not be necessary.
Thanks for looking - any information or suggestions will be very much appreciated.
