Every time someone claims this same photo nonsense, it turns out to indeed be 2 different photos.

It's the same photo, zoom is a little different but same picture. Neither are my auctions. I'm on my work computer so I can't access any photo sites.

This is not the first time. Topps has reused some of his photos SEVERAL times throughout the years...

In their defense, I think that's only supposed to be a relic card and they ended up using a part of the swatch where it was once autographed by Benintendi.

It looks like the partially visible inscription was noting the 'game used' aspect of the cleat.

Here’s their response

It was not done on purpose. Two different people worked on these products and while searching through the image database, both happened to select the same exact image without realizing it.

Thanks for posting that. It has looked to me like a new person is in charge of Series One this year. A fair bit less “zoom-in” / cropping to just a floating torso on card after card, this year.

Using the same photo multiple years is an old trick. I'm not sure, but I think it saves them money - only paying for the picture once.

It would be nice to think that a card has a photo from the the most recent season.

Too much to ask I guess.
