UD Past Time Pennants Countdown: Red Sox & Indians (Oh My!)

We are almost to the halfway point of the month of November - and with that, the halfway point of the countdown.  Today we get within a few spots of the top half of the countdown - expect some great cards coming up!

#51:  Rico Petrocelli

Once again, a posed shot is saved by an interesting background.  In Petrocelli's case, it appears that the majority of the fans are watching a batting practice home run or something (it sure looks like everyone is staring at the outfield wall).  On the other hand, I suppose this photo could be taken from the outfield in which case the fans are all watching a pitch being delivered.

#50:  Bob Lemon

Bob almost made it into the top 50.  Instead, he'll have to settle for being #50 exactly.  This card is another example of a background saving a posed shot.  However, it's actually Bob's smirk that lifts this card over the Petrocelli.

#49:  Fred Lynn

The Red Sox had a nice representation in this post, didn't they?  As for the Lynn, I would be willing to bet that both Petrocelli and Lynn had their photos taken on the same day.  So why does Fred finish two spots better than Rico?  Easy.  Fred Lynn made the photographer wait (notice how many more fans have filtered into the ballpark) and so Lynn clocks in at #49.
