Dirk dropped 53 on the Rockets on December 2, 2004

 

I remember listening to this game on the radio, Chuck Cooperstein was going nuts. I think Tracy McGrady scored 50 as well.

On a side note, while looking for pics of Roosevelt Collins, I discovered that he wore 56 for the 1994 Sacramento Gold Miners and the 1995 San Antonio Texans during the CFL's brief dalliance with America.  So pretend these were posted 4 days ago:

Ken Henson wore #51 for the 1965 Steelers.  He only played in 4 games as a center.  The lineman in this picture looks like he is wearing a number that ends in '1' (although it could be '7') but I have very little faith that he is actually Henson.  But the photo is labeled as from 1965, so we are going to pretend it is him.  Edit: if you zoom way in on the helmet, he is wearing '51' so maybe by some chance it is him!

Down by 22 points and without starting QB Tye Gunn, TCU rallied behind super sub Jeff Ballard to beat BYU, 51-50, in Triple OT in Provo on September 24, 2005.

Keith Flowers wore #50 for the 1952 Lions.  The front side of this card is Keith in his TCU uniform, which I already posted two weeks ago, because he also wore #64 for the Dallas Texans during the same 1952 season.

According to the website where this is posted, one of these guys is Chuck Machemehl, who wore #50 for the 1971 Indians.  I'm not sure which guy it is.  Pretty sure it isn't one of the black guys.  And he was a 25-year old rookie in his only MLB season, so it isn't one of the older guys on the top row.  And he was a pitcher, so I assume they wouldn't show him batting, even if this was the year prior to the advent of the DH in the AL, or the guy posing like an infielder.  And he was right-handed, so the lefthander is out.  So that narrows us down to: top row #2 or #3 or middle row #1.

Not to derail the thread, but isn't Ryan Tucker the guy that beat some guy up at Big Dogs?
