I'm looking for classic baseball photos ...

    I'd like to get something to give the apartment some life, but I can't seem to find right the store or Web site.

    I'm a big baseball fan, a Mets fan, too. I'd love to get my hands on a classic baseball picture like a Brooks Robinson play on the line or an Ozzie Smith play (in particular, the bare-handed play with the Padres). Any timeless scene would spark my interest. I've already got Piazza, Ted Williams and Mantle framed on one wall. A great Mets shot would be a bonus, but certainly not essential.

    Does anyone know of a place -- preferably a Web site -- I can browse for a legit, framed shot that isn't absurdly expensive? I've looked sporadically every couple of weeks, but have failed miserably each time.

    Thanks, kind folks.

    Whatever you do, try to find the classic of the Denver (minor leagues from many years ago) player who slid into second and is laying there, hi shand on the bag, looking up at the two umpires who called the play, one showing safe, the other showing out. It's a once in a lifetime photo and I believe I have seen it in poster form. Also look at ebay searching under baseball posters. A lot of poster giveaways are listed there.

    Don't count out eBay. I love surfing around there looking for old posters and programs and pennants. Heck, I've even bought uncut sheets of baseball card team sets and framed those.

    All kinds of stuff for my basement bar, when I get one of course.

    Much as I appreciate good baseball photos for the wall, nothing will spruce up a place like a framed "The Kramer."

    The wife bought it for me.
