Default 1962 Topps pose variations -- why??

Has anyone read a good explanation for why the 1962 Topps set includes so many picture variations? I don't care about the "green tint" cards, which to me are a printing anomaly rather than a true variation. And I don't mean the Buhl and Tasby cards, where their caps were airbrushed in later versions because they were traded. I'm talking about the different pictures used for seven players, none of whom were traded. The Wally Moon holding a bat card is a lot cooler than the hatless portrait, but who decided the Lee Walls and Billy Hoeft cards needed to be updated with nearly identical pictures? And while it's admirable that someone felt the need to change the Angels team card to include two inset pics, can anyone even tell who those players are?

I can't think of any other year Topps did this. There are the separate Clay Dalrymple cards in 1969 after he was traded and the 1974 Washington/Padres cards, but no other deliberate picture variations come to mind.

This thread discusses some of the proposed reasons why there are these print variations.....these print variations directly tie in with the green tints one way or another.

Hey George.
I'm a bit of an obsessive (okay, I'm completely obsessed) when it comes to the green tints, and last year, like Columbo, I was able to solve the 50+ year old Angels mystery...

Never noticed this before. That first Billy Hoeft is the same phone from the 61 set. Im sure you all have picked up on that already.

Awesome sleuthing on the Angels card!

And reading the other thread I have a grudging new respect for the green tint cards but not enough to collect all of them.

George--you can not collect the pose variations without collecting all the green tints. It is a hobby regulatory requirement .
