Default Program, Scorebook and Scorecard Variations

Does anyone have variations of a program, scorebook or scorecard that has the same basic design? As you can see here, one appears to be a stylized photo of Moran and the other is an illustration. There's also some subtle differences in the layout and one has a team photo and the other does not. Which leads me to believe the one without the photo (left), is very early in the season and possibly Opening Day while the other does not or it's a printers proof. In addition, I've seen a handful of the illustrated cover style over the years but this is the only photo style I've ever come across. Thoughts on the subject are welcome...

I have seen these types of variations before in the 1900 to 1920 time era. Experience shows most teams used the same program design throughout the season and printed new lineup sheets for each game or each home series.

However I have seen variations to this. I dont have any images handy but I have seen the following in Chicago Cubs programs

1) 1906 home program is a full color cover but I saw a variation that was solid green instead of color. Same exact images on front but not printed in color.

2) 1921 to 1926 cubs programs have the same basic cover design but there is a 1921 variation I have that has an image of Alexander on the cover.

Also, one way to tell that programs are very early in the season is that certain advertisement sections will be blank.

Another anomaly that pops up is that in New York and Boston programs would be reused for teams in the same city. I have seen Boston Braves programs that had lineup cards for the Red Sox versus another american league opponent. Game took place at Fenway but a braves program used. Have also seen the same with Giants and Dodgers programs.
