1991 Line Drive Pre-Rookie: An Appreciation, Part 4 – The Lost Art Of Posing For Baseball Cards

Today, in our week-long appreciation of the 1991 Line Drive Pre-Rookie set, I’m featuring posed action shots that are fun just because they’re posed action shots.  I’ll start with the outfield, move to the infield, and let the cards do most of the talking.

This one is one of my favorites, mainly because of the Stars logo he’s posing against.

Gerald Williams could’ve been featured as a “Before they wuz” card, but he had an important job here in this post.

So simple, yet such a great shot. If I didn’t collect Greg Legg cards to begin with, this card would still have a special place in my collection.

Topps should really get their Heritage photographers to do a few shots like these. I miss the fakey posed action.
