You definitely need to make a couple Chachi cards from press photos from both Sundfay's game and tomorrow's game, when the teams wear Negro League throwbacks. I wouldn't trust Topps to make very many cards using photos from either game.

Definitely considering breaking out the 1975 Topps template for when both teams wear '74 unis on Sunday.
