A Couple of Repeat Pictures


The Cubs and Topps went the cheap route with the backs of the cards in the 2022 season ticket holder set.  You would think that they would put in more effort when making a set for folks that pay $6,000 - $8,000 per season ticket.

I wondered if they got even cheaper and reused photos from other Topps sets.  It turns out that they didn't go to that extreme of cheapness, thought there were two cards among the fifteen with repeat pictures


The picture of Frank Schwindel is shared with Heritage 2022.


2022 Gold Label used the same Suzuki photo.


  1. I wonder if that was more cheapness on the Cubs than Topps - of course unless Topps pocketed the money given to make the cards.

  2. The amount of effort Topps puts into the backs is inversely proportional to the cost of the cards.
