I would guess early-mid 70s on the black and white one and late 70s on the color one.

To narrow down a date, it's probably all about that sleeve star insignia on the color photo. A quick search on eBay shows it appearing on many 1977 Red Sox players' cards. Didn't see it (not a thorough search) on any 1976 or 1978 cards, so it looks like the pic was 'probably' taken sometime during the 1976 season. Doesn't give you a release date, but it's something.

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

Thank you both! Phil, that was my guess as well but it is good to confirm. Darren, thank you for your help on the other one as I had not noticed the star and it does serve to help date it more accurately.

He's also wearing a flannel in the B&W and a double knit in the color.

According to the TCDB. the color sample is from the 1976/1977 (photos likely from '76) Boston Red Sox Picture Pack - if anyone has an Evans or Rice from this issue they'd be willing to sell please let me know.

There is no listing at TCDB that could ID the B&W one.
