    ...turn it on right now (7:30 p.m. EST)

    They are showing an original broadcast of a Twins-Red Sox game from September 1967. I collect /trade original broadcasts of games as a hobby and this is the earliest complete game in color known to exist.

    Ken Harrelson and (I think, I just turned to it) Ned Martin are doing play-by-play from Fenway. This is really sweet.

    They just announced tomorrow's starters: Jim Longbord against Dean Chance. Sounds like it'll be a good one.

    Who do you like in that one?
    And 40 years ago, and the Hawk was on the air? I thought he was still playing.

    I'll bet Pico Retrocelli is going to be a good one.

    I probably spelled Lonborg's name wrong. My bad.

    Different Ken Harrelson. Hawk played on the (I believe) 68-70 teams with the Red Sox.

    It is amazing that with the thousands upon thousands of games that were played in, say, 1970-79, very few are out there among our trading circles. The games that I have still have the commercials from back then, and if I had to guess, there are about 50 baseball games total for that decade. So for something like this to be out there is quite wonderful to us collectors.

    George Scott just went yard deep over the CF triangle. Petrocelli popped out.

    Y'all sure it's not Ken Coleman who is announcing those Red Sox games in 1967?

    The Hawk played a couple games for Boston in 1967, but he didn't start announcing 'til the mid-1970s.
