    Iconic Photographers Posed for These Baseball Cards in 1974 (14 Pics)

    Back in 1974, photographer Mike Mandel traveled across the United States and photographed 134 top photographers and curators as baseball players. Mandel then used those portraits to create Baseball-Photographer Trading Cards, an unusual set of trading cards featuring big names in the industry. As you can see from the card above, Ansel Adams was one of them.

    Other well known photo industry figures included Imogen Cunningham, Harry Callahan, Minor White, Aaron Siskind, William Eggleston, Ed Ruscha, and John Szarkowski.
    In addition to displaying the names and portraits on the front side, each card also had a personal statement from the photographer and various “stats” such as height, weight, birthplace, hometown, favorite camera/paper/film, and more. Mandel himself was featured on one of the cards, which were packaged and sold in packs of 10.
