#468 Snider's Play Brings L.A. Victory

Nowhere on the back of this card does it mention a specific play by Duke Snider that corresponds to the one pictured on the front. The wall Duke is leaping in front of looks like the part of Ebbets Field's center field wall that was 'sign-less'. Or it could be someplace else. Or given my experiences with Topps' use of pics on these Baseball Thrill subset cards, it could be someone else painted to look like Duke. I spent five minutes looking for the original and that's all I'm going to do.
I'm going to call it a generic, miscut, round cornered, poorly painted salute to The Duke of Flatbush's defensive skills and let it go at that.

Then again........
