Al Schmelz, put together from various parts

In case any other lunatic out there has spent years looking for a decent photo of Al Schmelz, this is probably as close as you can get. For the truly geeky, it’s a composite from the team photo in the ’67: That’s Schmelz’s face, upper chest and arms, Don Cardwell’s lower chest and belt (Tommy Davis is standing in front of Schmelz in the actual photo), and half of Ken Boyer’s number, twice.

And no, I’m not a Photoshop god.
