It seems like Topps progressively worked at taking better quality photos ('70's & '80's) and then turned towards printing/card stock/premium issues in the '90's onward. At least it feels that way. You no longer see as many of the goofy cards like this poorly centered '82 Fleer of Morris or the others. Although I have to say, these type of pics made it interesting to look through the various sets.....

Not my style, but that is an impressive Unibrow.....
