Cardboard Cousins: '65 Topps/'03 UD Vintage

 Another year, another Topps rip-off from UD Vintage. It's very hard to find any difference between the two variations, just a bit with the font size. #162 features a pair of Red Sox in somewhat similar poses. Other than being Red Sox there is not a lot of similarity between the two. However, shortly after each card was printed, the Red Sox traded both of them for relief help (Nixon to the Twins for Dick Stigman; Hillenbrand to the Diamondbacks for Byung-Hyun Kim.


  1. Blue is a weird color to use for a Red Sock.

    1. Blue is better than green. At least their uniforms incorporate some blue in it.
