Default 1972 Cards That Never Were, HOF Edition...

Here are my latest workings of 1972 'In Action' cards. I'll end up putting together as many of the 'ignored' HOF'ers as I can. First off, I'm going with these three guys, with an additional Nolan Ryan thrown in, because let's face it, most people love him…

VERY NICE!

Wish, back in the day, Topps took more time to select decent photo's. Also, question who they selected in some of these IA cards.

The 1972 Topps In Action cards remains my favorite sub set of all time. Great work on these cards that never were, is there any way of getting copies?

Thanks...

Three versions of a card that would've been a beautiful (and expensive) high number. He was basically traded for Jim Fregosi, and Fregosi ended up on a 'TRADED' card, but the Ryan Express did not?? Huh?? (It's 44 years too late, but still) Come on, Topps!!

Nice Ryans. You are right, that would have been a $100 card.

Darren,

Nice cards Darren. I think you should do a special green tint variation on at least 1 of the cards.

Also I have a request for a Mantle card. Every set should have a Mantle, in my opinion.

You got my attention "again" when you broke out the Weaver...

Of course the Brooksie one's are my favorite. Did you try the picture I sent of Brooks in the other thread to incorporate in the '72 IA?

It came across as nothing but thumbnail size. Tiny. If you can get me a larger version, I'll pop it into the Brooksie template I created and post it here.

Ironically, I was going through my 1972 Topps set the other day, and being a Cardinals team set collector I noticed for the first time that the In Action cards did not feature a Cardinals player. I had never noticed that before. The Brock, Gibson, Torre, and Carlton are very nicely done. Very impressive.

Are those hard copies or virtual copies?

These are all just virtual creations and they only include the fronts. Wish I had a time machine to go back to Brooklyn or Duryea, PA in late 1971 and knock some sense into the Topps folks!!

I didn't for a moment put any effort into doing the backs, though. These take a long enough time to create as it is.

These are great! I keep checking back looking for a true Carlton Fisk rookie, since his rook was shared with two other guys in that set. The latter day Archives versions of the card from Topps are lame....though I did find this one out on the web..

It's really tough finding somewhat contemporary photos on this web of ours, but I did what I could with Pudge…

Awesome cards, let's put you in the 'Way-Back Machine' and send you to the Topps factory (with your computer of course).

Very nice.

And sadly, I believe, this will be my final offering in this thread, because the only guys left are a couple of other managers and Tony La Russa as a Braves infielder.

But this guy was tremendous, so I had to give it up for ole Sparky…

Hey, just saw these, somehow I had missed them. These are really, really slick! Nice work, Darren. Love them all, but the middle one is definitely my favorite. Thanks for doing these.

The 1972 set is my favorite.
I was always puzzled why the Mets had 11 IA cards and the Giants had 10 and many teams had 5 (no other team had more than 5) while the Orioles,Cardinals,Rangers,Indians, Brewers and Astros had none.
The Orioles and Cardinals had many stars that year.
My only guess is that the photographer for Topps was not available when they came to NY
Bob Barton or George Mitterwald vs Lou Brock and Brooks Robinson just doesn't do it for me.

Terrific work, so much better than many of the real '72 "In Actions"!
