ebay watch: Sox 35mm slide

As I have stated before, I am always on the look out for new Dick Allen images.

Last week there was a bunch of beautiful, previously unknown Dick Allen color slides up for auction on eBay. Unfortunately, despite bidding on a couple of them, I did not win any of them. The image to the right went for over $200, which is a clear testament to how popular Dick Allen is, even 30+ years after he retired from baseball.

If you are the person that won this slide, please send me an email. I would like very much to buy an 8x10 (or larger print) of this image. I promise I won't copy and/or sell it. I just want it for my collection. I am also willing to work a trade with any of the images I currently own.

Thanks in advance.

You notice tha DA is holding the bat from the left side. Although I have never seen him do it I rember reading that in practice allen kill the ball batting left handed and if he would have seriously pursued it he could have been good switchhitter.
