Default Cards that accurately portray the player.

No head shots, no leaning on the bat rack shots, but action shots that make you say, "That's how I remember this guy".

Here are a few I thought of.

Gibson glaring in for the sign, a big swing by Reggie, and Brock leading off

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

Is there a Clemens card where he is gleeful over sending a 100mph heater into someone's head? That's how I'll remember him.

Like the '74 Reggie, but I'll always remember him as a Yankee.
