Doug McWilliams is a huge part of the history of baseball cards. From the early 1970s through 1995, McWilliams was one of the main photographers for Topps. The first picture of his that Topps ever bought was of George Hendrick, although they did not use it for a card. His first picture bought and used by Topps was Vida Blue. In 2010, McWilliams donated more than 10,000 negatives of his photographs to the Baseball Hall of Fame. After being responsible for so many of the baseball card pictures, it is only fair that McWilliams appears on one. This Celebrity Jersey Card features McWilliams wearing #50, presumably to represent his 50 years of photographing baseball.
