Name the Park

I've talked in the past about the many Cubs cards that have Shea Stadium in the background.  With the Topps headquarters located in New York, plus a team in each league, it makes sense that Shea was seen so much.  The tall outfield light towers are one of the identifiers I use for Shea.


Look behind both Jenkins and Spangler; the Shea light towers.


Look behind Altman and Koonce; light towers.  But those aren't Shea.  Up until a couple days ago, I assumed that these were two more Shea pictures.  I don't know what made me look a little closer at them, but as I did I had one of those "Ah Ha" moments.  The grandstands in the background on both are most definitely not Shea.  And as soon as I saw the stands, I knew which park it was.

Do you??

I'll post the answer tomorrow.

Go ahead and Name that Park!
