I have been looking over Ebay listings to see what different cards look like. I've been most interested in seeing the Wrigley Field Celebrates 100 Years cards. I had high hopes.
The hopes have been dashed. I didn't think that Topps would get it right, and on this card they really blew it.
The card is for the installation of the marquee, which took place in the mid-thirties. The picture looks to show a scene in front of the park before World Series game. It could be from 1935, 1938, or 1945.
This is the original black and white picture.
The colorized card looks great except for one glaring error. On a card celebrating the marquee, Topps has the marquee in the wrong color.
When it was installed, the marquee was fern green. Over the years the color faded to a bluish shade.
It wasn't painted red until the 1960s.
Revisionist history, compliments of Topps.
