Default Don Bradey Photo help

Anyone know where can I find a photo of Don Bradey for my Colt .45s collection display. (portrait or action...not with whole team). I have the custom cards and signature, but can't find a photo of him anywhere when searching Google. Wikipedia has him too, but no photo. I feel like a monkey searching Google and finding nothing. (He was with the New Orleans Pelicans too). Thanks!

When you google him a handful of pics show up but they are all minor league shots, someone mentioned on one of the pics that there are no known photos of him in a Colt 45’s uniform.

Per Google images, he does appear in a Colts uniform standing behind Larry Dierker and cake, although this is not the stand-alone photo you seek and wouldn't you know, none of his uniform markings are visible (although they are for others in the pic).

Someone made a custom card with this photoshop style. Great idea. Can you share what the B&W minor league photos look like?

If that is Bradey behind Dierker then there is technically a photo of Bradey in a Colt 45 uniform. Dierker's birthday was September 22 and Bradey didn't appear until September 25 but he may have been on the roster September 22.

I found this pic on-line. The ears match, so that's a good sign of legitimacy...

Spelling "Yastrzemski" correctly without needing to look it up since the 1980's.
