Posted By: <b>Paul S</b><p>smile, laugh, grin, go "Awwww", whatever? Could be an expression, a hair-do, a pose, a nickname, Bank's smile on every card? I always get a kick out of this Stengel, jawing away while being photographed.<br /><img src="http://i190.photobucket.com/albums/z26/pspec/Topps_1965_Stengel.jpg">

Posted By: <b>barrysloate</b><p>Adam- besides the humor of Merkle pulling his boner, did you notice the date on the faux newspaper is 1928, when it should be 1908?

Posted By: <b>Bob Pomilla</b><p>That photo sure doesn't look circa 1908, either.

Posted By: <b>barrysloate</b><p>You're right...it looks about 1950. Not the high point of baseball card artistry.

Posted By: <b>Anthony</b><p>And Merkle failed to touch 2nd, yet all the activity in the image seems centered around 3rd base.

Posted By: <b>barrysloate</b><p>The 1960 Hi-Lites set as well as the 1961 Nu-Scoops are among Topps' worst sets, IMO.

Posted By: <b>Anthony</b><p>Barry-<br /> Those were issued by Topps? First I"ve heard, but makes sense. <br />Just checked the wax box I have and it says Nu Cards Baseball, Inc Box 217 Seaford NY<br /> Wasn't Topps in Duryea, PA back then?<br />
