The back and stock resemble the Quaker Oats card. Given that the book above has a Quaker Oats ad on the back and a matching pose photo, I wonder if this was from something Quaker Oats ad-related in Canada?

This photo had previously bugged me for years and I put it away for a while only to have it bug me again now. I just would love to know where the heck it came from - book cover, ad, poster, premium...

Appears that the ballplayer seated far left may be missing his left leg??

Dark knee sock against the dark background of the bench and then tucked
Under the adjacent player’s outstretched leg.

Hey Treasure, can you post a larger version of that picture? I (along with everyone else viewing this thread, I'm sure) really want to figure out what in heck is going on with that disappearing extremity.

Hey! Y'all are getting sidetracked, help me figure out what the Ruth is

No problem, I used the photo inserter from this site. Please see the direct photo below to see if it comes out any better...I never noticed the guy's leg before this discussion haha

Sorry, Treasure, but you know what happens when you give a dog a bone. Hopefully we can end 'leg-gate' and return to our original programming.

The pic is coming across small, but I highlighted in red what I believe to be his vanishing leg. It's sorta going back under his chair, in a 'normal' sitting position. I think it is an optical illusion where his 'stub' is actually his knee (and area below it) kinda pointed at the viewer. The awkward look of his left hand adds a little credence to that theory. Heck, I could be completely wrong, but that's how I am seeing it.

When I look at it on my phone and on this message board, I still see it pretty large. It sure looks like he has only one leg...the white part of the pants is really high up and the foot behind him appears to be from the person standing in back. If that is the case, I've never heard any stories about this guy...

Hey, your enlarged pic actually points out more clearly what I was trying to say. The most important feature to examine is the dark section of his left sock. If you follow the straight line of the seat bottom, you'll see it dips down and is curved (which is actually his dark sock crossing in front of it). That's because his lower leg is 'pointed' toward the back of his chair (and presumably resting on the cross bar). The guy directly behind him has white pants and shoes on. Those are easily distinguishable from the player in question's leg/shoe and they intersect just a tad. (The other players in back don't come into play.)

Pic 1: Normal.
Pic 2: Dark part of sock colored red.
Pic 3: Dark part of sock colored red, and corresponding parts of shoes, socks and whatnot are indicated.

I think the main reason for the dilemma here is the dirt, scuffs, etc., to the right of his left hand and arm. That shadowing distorts the fact his knee is up, pointing out towards the viewer.

The player on the far right, last row, looks like Charlie Sheen.

Now I know how he gets all his vintage memorabilia...
