Sully Baseball Honors RACIALLY NEUTRAL CARTOONS
In some of the Topps series, including the 1980 cards, they would include a cartoon for some of the facts on the back of the card.
Check out the back of Cliff Johnson's card.
Not only did the cartoonist make NO attempt to make the players look like the actual person...
But every single player...
... was turned into a generic white guy.
I guess that is a form of racial equality.
"I don't think of players as black or white or Hispanic. To me they are all Kyle MacLachlan."
