Default What is the worst player photo on a card?

So the thread about companies using recycled pictures on cards, and the contenders thread got me thinking about what the worse player picture on a card is.

Post some of your favorites and let's leave rookies out because it's a bit harder for pictures!

Here's an example



Would have been an awesome photo but looks really awkward without the ball in the shot

How about these 2:






The first one is a picture of Alonzo Gee on a Thompson RC Auto!

The second is Juwan Howard on a Patty Mills!

hahahahaha

I'm not sure what would make a photo the worst. I personally like in game action cards but some look great with just the player on the card. I think the design has as much to do with the appeal of the card rather than the photo used.

Yeah, but those were different. The UD ones were just a case I printing the Erin name on the wrong image..... The ones I showed are just horrible screw ups because the players in the pics aren't even in te checklist! Haha

Yeah, I mean it's not horrible, but I just think it needs to the ball in there

Yeah. I agree. With the ball this is very iconic picture. The cover of Beckett issue #1

I can't find it for the life of me but the funniest one I had ever seen was a Devin Brown 04-05 Topps Total (or Hoops, I forget) picture of him going up for a layup with a hand on his nutsack w/ his face contorted in the most hilarious way possible.

If anyone can find it, kudos! For now just picture it in your heads, lol..

Uncanny! I was going to post that card too. I remember posting the Ming photo on the Beckett boards a few years ago. It's such a ridiculous design.
