Pre-1990s Sports Card Portraiture (Flickr slideshow) Images of pre-1990 sports cards which feature excellent photographic portraits, not action shots. I will delete stuff I don't think is good enough with abandon. posted by dhammond (11 comments total)

When the men were men, were the sheep scared?

Gary Maddox' card is perfect.

Oh wow, my son has several of these "portrait-style" sports cards that he bought at a garage sale (a gallon-size Ziploc baggie FULL of them, mostly baseball and football, for a couple of dollars; hmm I wonder if they're worth more than that). They're all from the 70s and 80s. I never really paid much attention to the fact that there was a difference between the portraiture versus the action shots. Very interesting. Thanks, dhammond!

The Gary Maddox one is great, but I think this one of Hal Woodshick's my favourite.

For some reason, I really want Matt to do the Hal Woodshick face.

That 90-91 Mogilny shouldn't be there.

I have a signed copy of this one somewhere. My grandma used to work with a lady that he was sleeping with when he came to town...
