Thanks Stephen.

Thanks Darren and Mark. I was wondering about the white-out on the bottom too. I think you both are right.

Default Great pickup!

That's a great Bob Feller photo! I had no idea that the same image was used for both the '54 Topps Scoops and the '56 Topps Bob Feller card action photo. What a great find! Congrats!

I know it’s weird quoting myself, but still think it’s a “very good possibility” that this was used for the card or possibility cards.

1. On the Scoop card notice the right foot portion of the card. It’s on a different angle than that of the actual photo. Therefore, we know this was the photo used for the card, even if a different match print, so the foot portion would have needed to be drawn by an artist for this card. Also, we know that the picture is B&W and the color would need to be added.

2. The ‘56 Topps is more of a likely possibility to me mainly due to the right leg and left cleat (anyone have the Feller photo without the wite-out?). Appears that both of these areas have unique shapes that match or line up, at least using my aged eyes, to be a match to the photo (Darren...why don’t you do one of those cool things you do for variances in cards for this?!?).

Like I mentioned the back of the photo looks just like a match print photo that I have from Topps. Looks like there is a stamp or some type of writing on the back, or maybe just a red mark. If writing, what does it state?

Either way it’s a cool photo and if it wasn’t used for the card/s it be neat to find out what it was used for.

I'll try the back upload one more time. Surprised it was so small last time. It is red print. "Bob Feller - pitcher". Mark can I see your image back to compare? Great eye on that left foot!

The majority outline and red print on the back had me wondering if it was used by Topps. I think Darren and Mark S. have a point about the bottom foot lack of outlining. But, truth be told, I don't know the Topps process from photo to artist rendition for the card, so I can't say either way. It has been a fun image to look into...and that's what makes the hobby tick for me. Thanks everyone for your comments.

Default Topps

I have a better example, but can’t locate currently, but hopefully this one is at least an example.

What you have is a team issue, the red identification was larger with "Cleveland Baseball Club" that was trimmed off. These were sent to newspapers, magazines and to other ball clubs for reference. Doubtful it was used to make the card. Nice photo!

Lots of team issued photos were made, but since they were sent to newspapers and magazines, most were thrown away, lost, or are tucked in archives. Very few of these ever see the light of day or exist anymore and I do not remember seeing this one ever sell publicly for what its worth.

Very nice image, regardless! I remember actually seeing the Topps artwork for the Feller Scoops card on eBay about 10 years ago. (Still kicking myself for not stepping up to buy it!) I do recall it was stunning, but I don't quite remember if it was a painting or a if it was a colorized picture through the flexichrome process. I guess in either case, the photo shown probably wouldn't have been used by Topps in the process for that card, although there are no doubts that it was created from a different version of the same (very cool!) photo.

I wasn't familiar with the flexichrome process. Found this 12 year old net54 thread for anyone else like me. Thanks Marty.
