What a great shot that is-even better than the one on his actual '57 card:
I would love it if Topps did a real, themed set focusing on the classic Ebbets Field, Yankee Stadium and Polo Grounds shots someday. It will never happen, but an Archivist can dream.....
UPDATE: August 10, 2011: I just realized I inadvertently swiped the alternate Koufax scan from the fabulous Fleer Sticker Blog and not the Topps site-sorry Jon--too many tabs open at the time! Click here for the Sandy scans and also some other sweet alternate poses.
Beautiful shot. Very rich.
I REALLY wish Topps would have released some of these in card form, especially of those who either never had a card, or those on odd teams. They had a pic on eBay of Jay Johnstone in a Cards uni, and one of Cecil Cooper in a Cards uni...those would have been great as inserts. One nice one was Dave Kingman in a Padres uniform.
