I recognize about 40% of the caricatures. We'd probably have to overlay numbers on them for listing purposes. I like Rempe holding an 8-ball above Grady's head.:D

I don't see Efren (Ceasar) in the pic. Maybe they left him out because nobody knew him at the time.

First 3 I recognized were U.J., Ronnie and me. (I'm scratching my left ear.)

I am not positive, but I think I saw this on azbilliards a month or so ago and they had all of them identified but a quick search just now didn't produce any results for me. I think the guy shooting is Richie Ambrose maybe?

I see Gabby....the shooter looks like J. Reid, and Buddy H. with the beard is close to Rempe. Medina is probably there and Cowboy Jimmy Moore for sure.

Okay, Lads. Here's Dave's original post with numbers added, 1-31.

Anyone who ID's 'em all gets a whole dozen cookies!(figuratively speaking).....~Doc

Oh you know what? The names I lasted are from the 84 poster instead of the 85 poster Dave has in this thread. I got the names from here:

http://www.bebobpublishing.com/Posters.htm

So you may be right about Gabby but it's still a lot of the same people it appears.

If you zoom in on the 84 picture you can read the names at the top and identify them all :)

Yes a lot of the pics are identical, but there are some changes. Jersey Red in bottom right in the 84, and the actor Leonard Nimoy , was in the 84. And by comparing, you see Sammy Jones is actually #23 in the 85 photo. Not next to Grady, like Steve thought. And the dog is in the 85. And Howard V is in both of them, but with different pics and in different locations...
