Vintage backgrounds: 1968 Topps Jim Brewer

No great insights here, just a fun card with a lot going on in the background. You don't see too many people in street clothes on vintage cards, at least as prominently as the man (well, half of the man) on the left. Meanwhile on the right, another photographer taking another baseball card photo? Or someone using binoculars to check out the early-arriving fans? This is Connie Mack Stadium in Philadelphia, with the Ballantine Beer scoreboard and Longines clock prominent in the background.
