Vintage backgrounds:

Going into the 1967 set now. It's a beautiful set but this is when Topps started having photo licensing issues, and they pretty much stopped shooting in big league parks for a couple of years, with just about every photo from spring training.

There are still lots of great photos, though. I love this one with Claude Osteen in another team's spring training park. I wonder if that is the Al Lang Stadium fieldhouse again? Whatever it is, it makes for an interesting, atypical baseball card background.
