Default E91 scans matched up with scans of cards from other sets

After years of procrastination (scanning and tracking down images just seemed so painful) I have decided to re-post this article. I have not revised anything in it, which I probably should have, but have scanned (or borrowed from the internet) comparison cards for each of the E91A subjects so the collector can visually judge for themselves if what I claim in the article makes sense to them. Since writing the article I found a good match for Plank (E95), found an exact photo match for Shay on the internet, and have determined that Devlin is actually a pretty decent representation based on the comparison cards. I even threw in some T206 cards just to make more people interested, and a few non-exact matches even when I have the exact match.

Sorry about varying size and quality of the scans, as well as the uneven printing on the article...curse my printer!

Default Accurate Representations, and the two profile cards Chance and Overall

These are the ones that I do not have a photo match, but I believe are accurate representations of the player's face. The Chance and Overall E91 cards are profile shots, so I do not have a very good match, although I think the Overall seems to share facial traits. Long ago I have actually seen the exact action photo of Reulbach that was used, and on this card they duplicated the body. The Chance...well, what can you do.

Don't forget about the 16 cards in the B series that are repeats (with same player designation on front) of the A series.

I'd love to have another Matty.

Beautiful set; loads of variation and incredible color.

Not a set I collect, but this is some neat work, Brian. Cool to see that they are not as generic as once thought.

Very interesting. I didn't know that so many of the images actually look like the player they are supposed to represent. The Plank, Waddell, Bresnahan, Murphy, Donlin, Evers and Collins are particularly obvious. As a (mainly) Red Sox collector, my only examples are from the C series. As these are the reused images, not my favorite set, but still not bad looking cards. Thanks for the info.

I scanned so many cards and pilfered way too many internet images to let this thread die...so I disguised the ever unpopular E91 focus in the title.
