Four Hall Of Famers in the Lineup!

Or so says the label on the front of the upcoming MLB Productions release Essential Games of the Chicago Cubs .  The game referenced is the July 12, 1969 game between the Cubs and the Phillies at Wrigley Field.  This was a NBC Game of the Week with Gowdy doing the PBP.  While originally broadcast in color, the kinescope is black and white.  This game has been in the hobby for a considerable amount of time and in fact, was aired on MLB Network in 2009.  It also marks the oldest known complete NBC Game of the Week Broadcast.
