Fenway Park - Two postcards

Fenway Park, Boston

Boston's intimate Fenway Park has the Green Monster, a 37-foot-high left field wall. Red Sox fielders who mastered its unpredictable caroms became legends. The home run that ended game six of the 1975 World Series made history there.

This postcard is from the set:
'Baseball's Legendary Playing Fields, The U.S. Postal Service Ready-to-Mail Postal Stamped Cards'
From 'Cooperstown Collection'

It has the matching 21 cent stamp imprinted on the back. - unused but from 2001

Fenway Park
Boston, Massachusetts

There are only 34,182 seats in the old (1912) American League Baseball park and they are usually filled! Over the renown left field wall are the Mass 'Pike, the landmark Citgo sign and the Massachusetts Avenue Bridge over the Charles River.
