Louis Requena ... vintage master MLB shutterbug

by theFalcon - 19 cards (Last updated on Jun 7, 2020)

1. 2016 Topps Archives - 1985 Topps #1 Draft Pick #85DP-JB Jeff Burroughs

Exact match:


2. 2012 Topps Archives - Deckle Edge #69DE-10 Orlando Cepeda

Color version:


3. 1971 Topps #14 Dave Concepcion

His bat is in a slightly different position on Getty:


4. 2004 Upper Deck Legends Timeless Teams #68 Mike Cuellar

Looks like a perfect duplicate at Getty:


5. 1970 O-Pee-Chee #360 Curt Flood

The same cap is in the same position on his head:


6. 1971 Topps #124 Don Gullett

His bare left arm is slightly visible in the Topps card, but not in Getty:


7. 1969 Topps #260 Reggie Jackson

Exact duplicate!!! I hope Mr. Requena made big money on this photo just like everyone else.


8. 2004 Upper Deck Legends Timeless Teams #58 Jerry Koosman

It looks better in color:


9. 1969 Topps #311 Sparky Lyle

It wouldn't surprise me if the Topps pic was taken at the same session as the Getty pic:


10. 1978 TCMA The 1960's I #210 Denny McLain

Looks like a duplicate at Getty:

Good job.  Requena published his own postcards and 8x10s that were sold to players to answer fan mail and for sale at Yankee Stadium and nearby souvenir stands.  His stuff is normally associated with Pan American Photo, his company.

As for making a lot of money on the Reggie rookie card photo, that's highly doubtful.  Most Topps photographers got a one time price for the images and were not entitled to long-term royalties.

Great concept for a list.  Thanks!
