eBay: Vintage LA Snapshots

I haven't been a very active buyer on eBay over the past several years. Sure, from time to time I'll snag a inexpensive card, but I haven't really been active like in years past. So, when I do come across something that I really fancy I tend take a more serious run than I normally would do.

Sometimes I come out the victor, but in this case I ended up waddling in the wake of a more aggressive bidder. And I gotta tell ya, I'm a little disappointed. The more I look at these the more I wish I had bid again. Check out these great circa 1972 (although, I think they likely come from 1973) fan taken photographic snapshots of an afternoon game at Dodger Stadium. The Cincinnati Reds are in town along with some special guest. This group of pics sold for $44.00.

Do you recognize any of the players? If you do, please let me know.
Wow, Tony Perez and Dave Concepion are below, along with Dodger coach Jim Gilliam.
Hey, look at that, the Team USA College All-Stars are in town also. Check out Walter Alston and USC coach (now Team USA coach) Rod Dedeaux chatting below. I'm pretty sure that's Steve Yeager on the bottom left. Also, the auction listing indicated that a youthful Fred Lynn is also in the pictures, but I have yet to spot him.
You certainly can't go wrong with cheerleaders. The USC Cheerleaders are in the house.
