Just looking at a few old cards in which fans are clearly seen in background.
Must have been a hoot to see yourself on a ball card !

Not like seeing myself on a baseball card. But there were some cards printed in Elite baseball that used photos I took. The company contacted me about the guy that was being drafted and asked if I had any pictures I'd taken of him that I could send. I got paid a nice penny for them.

Wow, that's pretty cool also

But can you imagine, opening up a pack of cards in 1967..and saying " wait a minute..thats my Uncle Joe in the stands " ! LOL

I don't think there are any such examples, because it's something I would have noticed, but imagine if there were any clearly identifiable fans in the background on famous, valuable cards. I'm thinking of cards like the Michael Jordan and Wayne Gretzky rookies, which do have fans in the background, but nothing recognizable.

("Identifiable" not in the sense that the fan has a degree of fame of his own, but as being able to go "Hey, that's me!" without needing to resort to a magnifying glass.)

Gary,

I have to give you the "thumbs down" on this. LOL.
After doing a quick search (spending less than 5 minutes), I found a few examples of cards with fans in the background that are CLEARLY IDENTIFIABLE.

If I found these as quickly as I did, there must be tons of others out there.

He got 2 out of 3 right and I suppose it is still possible for him to win a WS MVP award too.
