Default Photo used as basis of Hall of Fame plaque

I am always looking for nice images of Richie Ashburn, and hope to acquire a couple more that were used for his cards. I am not sure if anyone else looks for the images that were used for Hall of Fame plaques, but I have 2 examples of the photo used for Ashburn’s plaque. They are by Don Wingfield, circa 1954.
I would enjoy seeing other examples.

Nice Ben. Figured you would have at least one. This would be a fun way to collect Hall of Famer photos.
