In 1971, Topps made a revolutionary change to its presentation. As part of its memorable black-bordered set, Topps began to feature cards of players in action. These are not simulated situations or posed shots, or drawings of players in action, but rather full-card photographs of actual game action—and in full color. Most of the photographs were snapped at the two New York ballparks, Shea Stadium and the original Yankee Stadium, since both were located so close to the Topps headquarters. A few came from ancient and decrepit Connie Mack Stadium, wading through its final season of existence in Philadelphia before giving way to Veterans Stadium.

Hector Cruz was an OF masquerading as a 3B and he was just brutal.
Three of the ten teams in #11 are from 1981. Quite a year.

Should have held on to Shooty.
Ted Sizemore was batting 2nd in the order. To be honest, what Brock was doing (118-33 SB-CS) likely took a serious toll on Sizemore's batting statistics.
