Vintage backgrounds: Tampa Stadium

 In 1966 Tampa Stadium was constructed right next to the Reds' spring training site of Al Lopez Field. In 1974-75 the stadium was significantly enlarged to accommodate the NFL's expansion Buccaneers. The Buccaneers now play at Raymond James Stadium, constructed in the location of the old Al Lopez Field. You can see a great view of the then-newly-expanded Tampa Stadium just past the Al Lopez left field wall on this 1977 Topps Doug Flynn card.
