Two Guys Named Dick Ellsworth?

Only one of these guys can be Dick Ellsworth, right?

One card was made by Topps in 1966, featuring someone other than Ellsworth.

The other is a custom card by John Hogan at the Cards That Never Were blog (who, oddly enough has not posted for 10 months) .

John had corrected this UNBELIEVABLE error by Topps a few years back.

What makes it truly unbelievable is that the picture Topps used is of Ken Hubbs, who had died two years earlier.

I know, right? Topps couldn't correct this goof, but they took great pains to correct an error on a 1967 Tigers Rookies card. Neither of those 2 "George Korinces" ever did anything in the majors.

It would be nice if someone corrected the ken hubbs card

The card on the right IS the correction.

No one has made a 1966 Ken Hubbs card because he wasn't around then.
