About This File
Here is the 1971 Detroit Tigers team portrait set. I wanted to upload these portraits prior to me finishing the 1971 Total Conversion since it might be awhile yet. The Tigers would begin to threaten the Orioles for the AL East in 1971 but would not quite attain the top position. In 1972 after the trade that sent Frank Robinson to the Dodgers, the Tigers would barely win the AL East from the threatening Red Sox. The mustached A's would beat them in 5 for the AL Pennant. Veterans from 1968 like Norm Cash, Willie Horton, Al Kaline, and Mickey Lolich, and newbies like Aurelio Rodriguez, Joe Coleman, Ed Brinkman and Fred Scherman in the bullpen would allow the Tigers to challenge in 1971.
