Nice Photo

A few days ago I did a post about Giants pitcher Jeremy Affeldt and when I was scanning the cards I was going to highlight the 2004 and 2005 Topps Total cards looked exactly the same. They were so similar that I thought they had used the same photo until I noticed in one card Jeremy was wearing long sleeves while in the other he has short sleeves.

Here's another example this time definitely with the same photo. Here are two Tom Seaver cards, 32 years apart. I enjoy how the Reds batter's helmet is sort of transparent in the Stadium Club version while the '76 set air brushed the hell out of that helmet.
