Today we have another entry from my little mini-collection of pairs of cards which feature the same play shown by two different card companies and/or photographers. Today we’ve got a pair of Rick Wilkins cards from 1993 Topps and 1993 Upper Deck.
Unlike the prior post in this series, I don’t think there’s any way to figure out which game these photos came from, other than narrowing it down to a Cubs home game in 1992. If you look at the far right on the Upper Deck card, you can see the hand of the baserunner. All you can tell about the Mystery Runner is that he’s wearing a Franklin glove and has a red wristband.
In the crowd, you can pick out some of the same people… The easiest one to spot is the guy in the green and yellow cap. He’s over Wilkins’ head on the Topps card, and off to the far left on the Upper Deck card.
I’ve got two more pairs of cards like this, plus Shlabotnik Report readers have suggested two other pairs. I know there must be a bunch out there, does anybody know of some?
