1958 Topps Braves’ Fence Busters - Braves Card of the Day ⚾

I wonder how a card like this comes to exist. Did Topps purposely pick these four players for this photograph? Did they just find this photo in the pictures taken by their photographers? Anyone know?

The card features four of the Braves top five home run hitters from the World Championship 1957 season, with only Wes Covington and his 21 homers not represented.
