Time for the third installment of the Gene Mack cartoons from the 1940s. Today the three parks in New York, starting with Yankee Stadium above and the Polo Grounds below.

    Because I’m “old school” … I have printed all 3 sets of these out so I can go through them more mindfully. (And, just to be ornery, I’m going to update the Griffith Stadium cartoon with my Sharpie pen to include the spot where the Beatles played in 1966 and Sister Rosetta Tharpe got married in 1951!)

    Thanks for sharing all these … absolutely wonderful!

    These are really cool. Wish there was an updated one for the Polo Grounds that had Mays’ catch from the 1954 World Series.
