I came into this post expecting to give a short "no, the Twins (where Oliva played) have hats with a "T & C" (for Twin Citites) logo where the C is very prominent, so that's Oliva" argument, but when I did a short Google search I think that guru is right. Search "Tony Perez pictures" and one comes up poseted by Bob Netherton on April 22, 2011. It is EXACTLY the pose that this painting depicts (the shaodowing on the face, the slight sneer, etc). So you are in fact the owner of a Tony Oliva card with a picture of Tony Perez. Still a beautiful card, just a little weird (esp since there's likely no way to replace it).
