Ernie Embossed

A month ago I picked up the Billy Williams version of this card. Last week I finally found the Ernie Banks card at a decent price.

These 1965 inserts were an interesting concept, but I'm not sure the execution was up to par. Does that really look like Ernie Banks?

It seems like Topps used the base card as the basis for the Embossed card. And I guess you can see a resemblance to Mr. Cub, though I wonder what happened to his hat?

I guess Ernie got better treatment than Billy did.
