I love old film footage of people going to baseball games in the past. The crowd is overwhelmingly male, and even into the 1960s many of the men are dressed as if they had sneaked off from work early. Of course, people just dressed more formally, even for an event like a baseball game.
I can’t help but love the two women who are dressed more like a day shopping than at the ball park. And I can’t imagine a more delightful pair with their gloves, hats and pocketbooks.
Going to a Yankees game was on our short list for this week. I’ll let you know if I was as lucky as the lady in red.
The artist of this Post cover was Dick Sargent, not to be confused with the actor who took the same name. Not only did Sargent illustrate 47 Post covers (including Point Lookout that I posted last week), he did print ads and movie posters.
