Baseball Card Mystery: George Hendrick Part 1

Were all three of these photo's (1974 Topps, 1975 Topps and 1975 Hostess) taken approximately at the same time.). I would say the 1974 and 1975 Topps were because you can actually see the same cloud formation in the background. These two photo were taken seconds apart. However on the Hostess card I can't be sure if it was even taken at the same staduim.  Though it would have been odd for Hostess to capture a photo of George that nearly mimics his Topps cards 


  1. The '74 and '75 look like they were taken at the same time; both at Yankee Stadium. Also makes sense since in '74 the Yankees were playing at Shea, so the picture on the '75 couldn't have been taken in '74. The Hostess card was taken in Oakland; same pose but different location.

  2. Topps and Hostess shared photo sessions. There are quite a few Hostess negatives on sale from the Topps Vault on eBay at any given time.
