Agree; I thought I'd rank order the top 3.  Tochiozan is almost spooky: even Elvis didn't look that much like Elvis as a kid.

There were plenty of youth pics of Asanoyama lately, this time also really early http://smart-flash.jp/sports/75002/2

On this one he is not yet obviously recognizable - with dad, age 4m

but unmistakable at age 5

Time again for Onami youth pics - mostly the same from the above posts. This above pic provided by their father is now posted as actually being one of Wakatakakage. But here he is 1996 at age 1 with Wakabayama age 73, who looks younger in the other one:

Late to the party, but Takayasu's expression in his photo looks remarkably like something Konishiki would do.
