The photo that appeared in Sports Illustrated that showed the 'best team money could buy'. Oddly enough,, that photo does not match the cover. Anyways, the inside flap (which ended with Brock and put Ceppy on down on the inside of the fold) read: The Highest Paid Team in Baseball History Maris $75,000 McCarver $60,000 Gibson $85,000 Shannon $40,000 Brock $70,000 Cepeda $80,000 Flood $72,500 Javier $45,000 Maxvill $37,500 Schoendienst $42,000 ________________________ $607,000 And then the article inside was about how Red handled 'the egos of the moneymen' and how Bing dealt with the criticism of Dal Maxvill making $38k.
