Ryno Repeat, and Dawson Too

I don't know why this keeps happening.


The picture on this year's Ginter card of Ryne Sandberg was used in the 2005 Rookie Cup set.   Topps used Getty images.  I found 295 pictures of Sandberg that were dated from the time of his active Cubs career.  Couldn't one of them have worked?

And Andre Dawson, too.


The 2016 Ginter used the same picture as the 2014 Ginter, and the 2011 Kimball.  I found 130 Getty images from his time with the Cubs.

A little originality, please!


  1. I thought this year's A&G card looked a little familiar. 2014? That's way too soon to reuse an image, especially in a set like Ginter where the design doesn't change much.

  2. I made it! I read post #1 on September 20, 2014 and caught up today. I'm not sure what the reward is for reading every post in order, but it's been a worthy use of time, done in spurts. Now I can subscribe! Thanks for all the fun, although, as someone else posted, I can't believe Darwin's pitching experience didn't merit a blog post!

    1. Welcome to the present! I really appreciate you're dedication.
