These two legendary Reds were both playing in the first major league game I ever attended. Unfortunately, Seaver was pitching for the Mets that day, and the Reds lost. The Reds went on to win the World Series, though, so it all worked out.
Morgan has always been one of my favorite players from those Big Red Machine days. He was an on-base monster – for a guy whose average was .271, his OBP was .392. That’s a LOT of walks.
These cards are a bit different from anything else I’ve designed. I’m trying to push myself in different directions and do a wider variety of designs. I don’t really like the font used for the last names, but it seems to work in this design. I might keep trying some different ones, though.
