Dick Allen Baseball Card Project: 1967

In 1967 Topps went back to a boring spring training posed picture. I am not opposed to posed images, but when possible, the back ground should be an actual major league ballpark.

As I work through this project, I am discovering there really are not many color action shots from the late 1960's. Most of the action photos I have collected over the years are black and white. I actually did two versions of this card, the first one is a basic head shot with a seemingly annoyed DA looking back at press photographer in his locker. The second redux version of the 1967 card is not that much different from the original, except the background does not look like it was taken on a high school field.
