Call the guys at Olan Mills...

The concept was really funny to me: What if Leaf had made their Studio line of cards back in the '80s. There would be a whole bunch of silly backdrops, and a mess of composite "glamour shots." You know the marketing guys over at Donruss/Leaf would have been on the intercom hollering at a secretary, "Get the Olan Mills people on the line! We're gonna try and work a cooperative crossover!"

 
1984 Studio - Gary Pettis
 
1984 - Tony Gwynn
 
 
The finished product is less than stellar, but it has been a while.
 
(Yeah, I know it's Pettis' little brother - and a photo from '85. It was the first classic Olan Mills pose I thought of.)

I have always loved the original of that Pettis. Good call on the library.

Floating Gwynn head creeps me out.
