    Wouldn't it be more appropriate for Cal to be reading an "Iron Man" comic book?

      Did the reports say anything about him being on "the stuff" during his Boston days? Because if this card is any evidence, it looks like he's going through the effect of it...

        Bill Davis - a "ROOKIE STAR" four years in a row.

        EDIT: Make that 5 years in a row.

          Good catch about Bill Davis! It reminded me of Dick Baney. I used to laugh because he was a 'rookie star' on both the '69 and '70 Topps sets, but Bill Davis has him beat by twice!

            Wow, I thought Lou Piniella had it bad (three cards, spaced out over six years). BTW, if we're talking about reusing photos, Tommie Aaron's 1969 Topps card features the same photo that was on his 1963 Topps card.

              I can't check as I'm away from home, but I thought Davis was on 5 rookie cards.

                Dalkowski, wasn't there also an issue with some early 1950's cards of Johnny Sain and Joe Page? Their images were mixed up with each others? Something like that....? I seem to remember once reading about that.

                  Re: Page/Sain errors. That was 1952 Topps. Their stats were switched, both cards were later corrected.

                    Yes, he was also on a 1965 Rookie Stars card. At least they didn't reuse that picture.

                      Yup, I missed that one. Thanks.

                          I imagine that photo session went something like this...

                          Photographer: OK Roger, here's a baseball. Show me your split-finger grip.
                          Clemens: GRR!
                          Photographer: That's good, but give me a nice smile. This is for a baseball card.
                          Clemens: GRRRRRR!
                          Photographer: Pleeease? Just one quick smile. It'll only take a second.
                          Clemens: GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!
                          Photographer: Ah, screw it. <click>

                            Not only did Topps resuse Marv Thornberry's 1958 picture in 1960 and 1963 (see small picture) they used it for 3 different teams.

                            Notice the emblem on the hat and the absence of New York on the front of the jersey.

                              Thank you. I was going to give this post until 2:58pm eastern time. If steroids hadn't come up by then, I was going to do it myself. It makes me smile.

                                Ken Hubbs had been dead for three years when his photo was reused on the 1966 Topps card of Dick Ellsworth.
