Quick question/request regarding a classic picture

Anyone have a link to a better resolution version of this classic Rocket Richard picture:

Or maybe you have a higher resolution version you could send to me?

Thanks.


On a related note I have been scanning more and more of the many classic Bruins pictures I have (and before you ask, yeah...I have lots of great Orr pics you've probably never seen, or haven't seen in a long time, if there is interest I could start sharing them.)

"And Bobby still has most of his career ahead."

In his fourth NHL season the 22 year old Orr won the Hart Trophy, the Art Ross Trophy, the Norris Trophy and the Conn Smythe. "And he should have won the Vezina" said Gerry Cheevers, "because he blocked more shots than half the goalies in the league."

I guess if I am going to keep posting scans I should start a different thread.....

I hope someone comes up with a better version of the Rocket pic though. I am trying to put together a pictorial collage of my top 25, and that is the Richard pic I want to use.

Check/Ask in the Habs forum, lots of guys around there have some pretty nice pics. I have seen lots of the Rocket, Belliveau, etc..

Being born in Boston, and being a life-long Bruins fan; I'm not sure I can enter the Habs forum. I might not be able to forgive myself.

lol

Pic looks great as an avatar too btw.
