i am very excited to post the latest batch of new images from our archives. the search started when rich altman from hollywood collectibles told me about his celtics reunion show coming up in april at the shriners auditorium in wilmington massachusetts. i was looking for photos of celtics legends like bill russell, sam jones, john havlicek and satch sanders to name a few. as i dug through the negative archives from those great celtics teams of the 1960's and into the 1970's i came across some great images. however, along with the celtics greats were great opponents from the era; jerry west, pistol pete maravich, willis reed, walt frazier. some really nice photos of these legendary players. please check out the new additions section of our site to see some of these. also, if you are planning on attending the celtics reunion show we have a nice collection of images of the players attending that would be great for autographs.
two of the players we get a lot of photo requests for at the brearley collection are sandy koufax and johnny unitas. unfortunately, we didn't have much, if any, negatives of these two legends. i recently uncovered some images of unitas and koufax. the photograph of koufax in particular is awesome. it captures him after delivering a pitch against the chicago cubs at wrigley field.
