Vintage backgrounds: 1976 Topps Sal Bando

There were a few instances in the 1970s where Topps randomly used postseason photos for a player's card. This would appear to be one of them, as a left field umpire is visible behind Sal Bando. Not sure this is 1975; the A's only played one postseason game at home in '75, and that game started at 5:15. Maybe it was early in the game. The earliest groundout to 3B was in the top of the third, by Juan Beniquez.
