Repeated Extra Ernies


The good news....Ernie Banks has been included in some 2017 Topps products.

The bad news....

...Topps is not being very original with their choice of pictures.

I realize that there is a limited number of color game-action pictures of players from the '50s and 60s.  But in this digital world of Photoshop and other photo-enhancing tools, isn't it possible for Topps to take some black and white pictures and colorize them.  I'm sure that there are a bunch of game action B&W pictures ripe for color.

Yes, that means going a little above and beyond.

But shouldn't they??

  1. I agree. Obviously they've had no problem choosing to do airbrushing and Photoshopping. Why not colorize. And you're right. There are some nice ones of a younger Ernie out there.
