Default Bob Feller original photo for Topps cards?

I picked up this Bob Feller photo. I liked it despite, even because of, the editorial markings. It seems to me that it is the source photo for Feller's 1954 Topps Scoop and 1956 Topps cards (see below). Considering the outlining, is there any chance I am looking at the original photo used to make the cards?

Think its a very good possibility. The back looks very similar to a match print photo that I have that was used for a Topps produced card. Very cool piece.

It just hit me. That mound on the 56 Topps is HUGE!

This may or may not be pertinent to the question at hand, but please realize that although your photo has the clear marks of editing (basically Wite-Out), it doesn't go fully down and around his planted foot. The photo itself matches, but it is doubtful (to me, at least) that it was used to actually create the Topps card. Again, I'm not sure if that's specifically what you are asking.

I think that is what he was asking specifically, and agree with you. The white-out would likely surround the ankle and foot, if that was the actual photo utilized by Topps. I think this one was used for a different purpose.

Still a great photo, and same exact image as appears on the Topps Cards.
