Default '56 Clemente #33 - Original Photos?

Just wondering - do any of you know if the original photos, Topps archives or whatever - likely in black and white - exist out there anywhere for the '56 Topps Roberto Clemente? If they do I would love to see them. I had been looking for the shots from the Mantle card for probably 20 years, and finally saw them for the first time late last year. Just think that kind of stuff is neat.

The head shot is obviously the same one used on Roberto's rookie card from the '55 set - but the action shot - does that exist in original form anywhere? Incredible catch up against the old right field wall in Brooklyn's Ebbets Field and the Esquire Boot Polish sign - that action shot and the eccentric mix of colors on this card due to that with the lettering in the background I suppose has been one of the reasons I've always been so intrigued by it.

Anyone know?
