During his peak years, Eric Davis was one of the most exciting ballplayers I’ve ever seen. I’ll always wonder what he could have been if his career hadn’t been cut short by injuries.
This is my first custom card for Eric, and I tried to make it look like some of the designs that were around during his playing days.
The other card is another custom for Johnny Bench. This one features one of Bench’s two Kennesaw Mountain Landis MVP awards.
I’m still working on my project for the 1919 Reds, by the way. Since we’re so close to the actual 100th anniversary of that series, I’ve decided to post the cards, along with some notes on each game, exactly 100 years to the day of each game as it was played. So, Game 1 will be posted on October 1st, and Game 8 will be posted on October 9.
