Cool clip Fuzzy thanks for posting. More baseball clips please. As we all know Marla Collins would go on to bigger and better things.

And to think that a mere 5 wins and 14 losses later, Lee Elia would give the world one of the greatest soliloquies in modern history.

That is one beat up looking mic flag in this report.

Ah yes...Chet Coppock. Haven't heard that name in years.

Here's the infamous tirade with Lee Elia:

This was 74th of the 101 damnations the Cubs have gone through.

What about the White Sox?

Does Chet Coppock look like David Letterman's long-lost twin or what??

The ChiSox did not win the division championship until a year later.

The McDade's in Palatine was at 1300 E. Northwest Highway. The Post Office is in that location now.

I know I went to the McDade's in Palatine but can anyone remember where it actually was located?

ID'ed the woman in the bumper promo at the beginning - Karen Kalish.

The guy at 1:27 looks as if he is trying to give The Most Interesting Man in the World a run for his money.

I remember hearing somewhere that, after years of doing these commercials, DiMaggio was disenchanted by young people who wanted his autograph because he was "Mr. Coffee" and had no idea about his baseball career.

Something seems misleading here... is it 37 cents for one 5x7 print, with a much greater sitting fee that we're not told about?

Or is this all to get Cheapskate Mom to come in for a big sales pitch in hopes that she'll put away her change purse and actually buy the deluxe package of 75 prints, with a pose in front of each background. With 5x7, 8x10, 3x5, 36x24x36... wait, maybe not that last one!

And if these are "portraits for Christmas," why are none of the backdrops holiday-themed?! I guess they bring those out for Easter...

That Colorburst 250 Instant Camera is as big as the kid's head using it.

Corrected - thanks!

Typo alert: It says "Roger Cole - Capitol Records" in the description but it's actually "David Cole".
