It is kind of shocking how much thought and work they put into the production design for this commercial.  More than some actual teams do. 😛 

 

Anyone recognize the ballpark where they shot it?

Maybe the Staten Island Yankees ballpark? 

 

Wonder what would cost more, pay for the rights to use a real team's branding or create a fictional team?

I think you’re right.  With a little CGI extension.

Good eye.  It looks like the upper deck was extended over an additional 2.5 sections (+/-) of the lower deck.

Love the two different jerseys there.

 

Wonder why the early HBO shows like this one aren't available on the network's streaming site?  It's not like syndication wasn't a thing at the time; HBO would have known they might need rebroadcast rights in perpetuity when writing the contracts.

My contribution (and, for the record, I have no interest in the remake) . . . 

The uniforms were intentionally bad in 1976, but that have a certain retro panache now.

Then the Bears went upscale when they traveled to Tokyo . . . complete with a more prominent sponsor.

So wonders every "From the Earth to the Moon" fan out there. (If you haven't see it, you owe it to yourself to check it out--the DVD box should be available for cheap.)

Can't say I was big enough fan of the show to know the details of the football scenes, but I thought the Smallville Crows had a nice identity, complete with team warmups and practice uniforms with mismatched helmet logos (which is a nice touch if intentional).

1st & 10 is on Amazon Prime, I added it to my watchlist a few months ago but haven't dove in yet. HBO didn't produce 1st & Ten they just aired it, so whatever rights they had to show it most likely expired years ago.
