"GIMME A DO-OVER"-PART VI: 1971 JOE MORGAN
For this do-over, I wanted to re-do Topps 1971 issue for Joe Morgan. I just never liked the back-facing action shot where the umpire and opposing catcher seemed to get more "play" on the card than the player actually supposed to be depicted.
I tried finding some true action shot of Morgan from about the same time period, but had no luck. So I went with a decent portrait shot of him which seems to work well enough.
