2016-17 & 2018-19 San Francisco Giants Fan Fest photo cards

     eBay saved search comes through again!  It appears that the Giants updated their Fan Fest photo card design a tad for the 2018 event, and I just picked up a lot of cards on eBay that included a previously unknown Hensley Meulens card.

     In this new design, the team logo is now in a square that fits within the edges of the name and team bars, the player name is slightly wider, and the team name and position are now italicized.

2018-2019 design

For comparison, below is the design that was used from 2013-2015.

2013-2015 design
 
The other cards I have found with this new design are as follows:

Tyler Beede
Ty Blach
Matt Herges
Evan Longoria
Andrew McCutchen
Conner Menez
Hensley Meulens
Alyssa Nakken
Buster Posey
Pablo Sandoval
Rick Schu
Curt Young

I'll update the list as I find more.

--UPDATE-- 

     Slight update here, as I just dicovered that there was another design change that I missed.  Between the 2013 design and the 2018 design, there was subtle change that I am now calling 2016-2017.  Swiped from an eBay listing, the Ehire Adrianza features the newly discovered design, and the Jeremy Affeldt the earlier design.  The two differences being on the 2016-17 design the team/position banner features the larger, italicized text, and the banner does not extend beyond the end of the logo circle.



For this 2016-17 design, I have identified the following players, so far:

Ehire Adrianza
Brandon Crawford
Gorkys Hernandez
Hunter Pence
Buster Posey (crouching)
Buster Posey (throwing)
Jeff Samardzija
Albert Suarez
Mac Williamson
