Default 1971 Munson - REALLY in action?

I was watching the linked documentary on the 1970s A's teams, and I believe that the iconic photo used for Thurman Munson's 1971 Topps card was snapped at 8:35 or thereabouts....

Has anyone seen one of the versions where his name is supposedly in white but the trophy and Yankees appear normal ?

At the risk of outing someone's auction, here is another version

I was such a dangerous hitter I even got intentional walks during batting practice.

Spelling "Yastrzemski" correctly without needing to look it up since the 1980's.

That is definitely the play. Awesome. If you scroll down a few I posted similar videos of the 1971 Agee, 1971 Pinson, and 1973 Pat Corrales cards. Too cool.
