Default Bill Russell

I do not know anything about this particular set. Doesn't look like Russell to me. Thoughts?

My guess is the checklist is incorrect and the player pictured on 62 is 61 and vice versa.

Indeed the guy on the left looks a lot more like Russell, no?

I concur. A very expensive Jesse Arnelle rookie.

I sent an email to Joe O. yesterday about the misidentification. No word back yet.

After being notified about this the lot has been withdrawn from the auction.

I would have thought Bill Russell was more recognizable than this. Oh well.

Maybe not in 1955...

Here's a fun tidbit, all of the PSA graded "Russell" cards aren't.

Weird. The wrong guy is labeled Russell on my sheet too. I wonder if they based it off an old pic of my sheet somewhere? Whoever owned my sheet back in the day wrote everyone's name in pencil next to each photo.

The stupid security token crap won't let me upload a photo and photobucket can eat my bum. Any suggestions?
