Dick Allen Baseball Card Project: 1968

Now we can move onto something with a little more style. The 1968 Topps design brought a nice burlap texture to the party. Unfortunately, they delivered yet another posed picture for the DA card. Are we are starting to see a pattern here yet?

I guess I should not be that hard on them, at least they were consistent. I took a look at my collection, and it seems as if every card that year had the same photographer walking up to the player before a spring training game and saying "alright, stay still while I snap this photo" look to it. Check out a nice sample size of what I am talking about here.

I took a different approach with my redux, choosing to show off DA's legendary swing.
