I love this picture for 4 reasons:
-It shows fans in the seats (some pics do not)
-It is a picture of the Stick before they put in the 49ers seats which makes it usable for the 1960s
-It has the right angle. Some have a side angle and I dont like that.
-It shows the stick with the right number of fans (It didnt sell out all the time)

If you have a nighttime picture like this I would love to see it.

I'll see if I can find a nightime one as well.  I, like you am very picky when it comes to my ballpark backdrops.
Dave used about 12 of my personal photos for the 2015 game or 2015 game.  Not sure which one.  I did a road trip of the midwest and took pics for each ballpark.

hootenany,
I played the whole 9 innings (i.e. 30 years - May 1970 to June 2000). Was a Nuke ET. So we have that Nuke thing in common it appears. 
I was on the Vallejo SSBN 658 and started my second instructor tour at NPTU West Milton NY in your 83 to 87 timeframe. 
Good to hear from a shipmate on this site.

There is one I have yet to frind.

I need a really good candlestick stadium (Night time and Day time) from the 1960s

The 1960 Candlestick stadium did not have the massive football stands added to the outfield. There was just a few bleachers in the outfield and you could see the parking lots.

Thanks in advanced.
