Cardboard cousins: '54 Topps/'03 Topps Heritage

I don't have many '54s but I did have a couple that lined up to heritage cards. For some reason Topp's didn't use the baby blue color. The forest green looks pretty good too though.

#192 Cot Deal/Matt Morris. Other than being right-handed pitchers they didn't have much in common. In 1954 Deal, a journeyman reliever, pitched in 33 of his career 45 games. Morris in 2003 went 11-8 in the Cardinal's rotation, a down year from 22-8 and 17-9 the previous two seasons.
 #38 Eddie Stanky/Tony LaRussa. Two famous managers. Stanky at the beginning of his career, LaRussa well into his.
