Always been a cool pose, but I always took it that Benny was just boogying. Then I noticed another member comment that he thought that it looked like Benny was riding a motorcycle. Haven't looked at the card without thinking motorcycle since. Either way, Benny was a clown!

I never have understood why it was decided to show the back side of this player:

shame the crease doesn't run the other way it would look like he's grabbing it!

Default Batting from the mound

Something that I hadn't noticed until recently is this Schapira card of Babe Ruth. Since this set was issued in 1921, he had already transitioned to a full-time outfielder and had a couple of great batting seasons under his belt. They decided to include this pitching pose in the set, but added a bat to make it seem like he was dropping the bat after a swing.

Ha, that is a great read. Very cool.

What does this kind of thing do for the demand/value of a card? I mean, I suppose it can only go up, but is there any notable example of this happening?

I thought of posting this card when this thread first started. My guess is it's most likely Joe Jax in the centerfold sliding into 3rd base. His ears are the tell-tale clue.
And, the background is the Cleveland Stadium of that era.

The only thing more clever than Schapira thinking of that is you for noticing.

Check out Old Hoss Radbourn's left hand...

There's got to be someone who's never seen this one.
