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
Ray Black
Brandon Crawford
Matt Duffy
Gorkys Hernandez
Chris Heston
Nick Hundley
Steven Okert
Hunter Pence
Buster Posey (crouching)
Buster Posey (throwing)
Jeff Samardzija
Albert Suarez
Mac Williamson
Ron Wotus
