Default Mantle / Ripken RC comparison

Anybody ever take notice that the 51 Mantle and Ripken RCs look remarkably similar?

It took me a little while to realize that you meant the 82 Topps Traded Ripken, and not his card from any of the three 82 base sets.

I hadn’t noticed the resemblance before, but that seems like a reasonably common pose on cards.

It looks like Cal is using his shoulder to take care of an itchy chin problem.
