Why did I choose to create the Dodger missing cards first ? Two reasons:
- I fell in love with that team in the early 70’s and working on this set brought back great memories
- All the missing photos were compiled by my “helpers” and ready to go.
NOTES AND COMMENTS: The Dave Patterson photo was originally B&W. Lerrin LaGrow’s came from a B&W Phillies team issue glossy. The Beckwith photo was distorted on purpose when it came off of ebay. I had to rework the orientation to make it usable. It still looks like the jersey doesn’t fit the body. The quality of the Hannahs B&W was so poor that when I tried to colorize it, it wound up looking horrible and grainy. Finding a good replacement photo that is in color will be what we term a “white Whale”. Hopefully we will find a better one along the way before the project is complete, so we can add it to the updated set.
