I agree. The Flagstaff collection is an absolute treasure trove.
Besides the short snippets on twitter does Flagstaff offer subscriptions or memberships for people who would like to see longer footage?

Terrific stuff. Player uniforms were so much better back then. These days with the pant legs pulled down for some guys, and hiked way up for other guys is lame. Not to mentioned the multiple combinations.
Like a lot of things, I do not mind a few combinations, but it gets overwhelming at times. The Cardinals have held back on that for the most part, but are creeping into a little more varied lool, which when pushed too far becomes the old “beer league softball” appearance.February 10, 2019 at 8:23 am #81632March 15, 2019 at 7:15 am #83943March 22, 2019 at 7:58 pm #84491
Man, Warren Spahn had such a nice, smooth windup and delivery of his pitches.March 30, 2019 at 7:25 am #85130March 30, 2019 at 3:10 pm #85164
Some great ones there. That was Palmer facing Maris as a Yankee, so it had to be 1966, Palmer’s rookie year. He then missed most of both ’67 and ’68, but managed to come back strong and end up in the Hall.
For anyone not doing much on Monday, the Movies channel is showing baseball movies all day. One of them is “Safe At Home”, filmed in Spring Training 1962 where a kid gets Mantle & Maris, who were at the height of their “M&M fame at that point, to his Little League team. I still have that movie on VHS, and still have two perfectly fine working VHS machines, but have not seen it since the 1990s. Maybe I will fire up the old tape machine this weekend and give it a look-see (to quote Barney Fife).April 13, 2019 at 12:36 pm #87132April 13, 2019 at 12:48 pm #87135
Cool video of Babe Ruth. He finished his career playing with the Braves then as a coach for the Dodgers.June 9, 2019 at 8:35 am #93881

I love those old films. Those were some mighty swings by Harry Walker and Stan the Man.
