Buried treasure! Historic Sounders photos discovered

You never know what you'll find in a shoe box. Just ask Jenni Conner.

The teenager who snapped photos of her soccer heroes in the 1970's is now the mother of two who snaps photos of Sounders players for fans in this generation.

Recently Jenni found a shoe box full of old (mostly) black and white photos from the Seattle Sounders of 1977-1979 in the North American Soccer League.

I grabbed the stash like any good fan would and spent some time scanning and then doing some slight touch-ups to the photos. Now they are online here at GOALSeattle.com and all of you recent Sounders converts can have a look back at how it used to be.

Notice the crowds, the fan interaction, the banners that covered the Kingdome railings. Notice the way the players would wave in appreciation after matches. Notice how skilled the guys of that era were.

Thanks for taking these photos all those years ago, Jenni, and thanks for finding them again and letting me share them with Sounders fans!
View the entire gallery here!

I've made a smaller gallery with Jenni's photos from the August 25, 1977 match at the Kingdome v. the Los Angeles Aztecs. Before 57,000 fans the Sounders nipped LA 1-0 on a goal by Jocky Scott to advance to Soccer Bowl '77. See that gallery here!
