Vintage backgrounds: 1967 Topps Paul Blair

 Here's an intriguing background. Is that Brooks Robinson in the background, flashing some of his legendary fielding prowess in the background? Perhaps he just made a great play on a line drive down the line.

And what exactly is Blair doing anyway, arms stiffly hanging in front of him, looking above and behind him with a bit of a smile? A bit of subtle clowning around in front of the cameraman?

  1. Maybe the cameraman told him to look at the birdy, but that birdy just happened to be flying in the opposite direction? Or maybe there was more than one birdy, and the cameraman wasn't specific about which one he wanted Paul to look at?
