I created these 1981 alternate cards for Seaver & Foster but never posted them. Foster was always the nicest guy, but he would crush the souls of opposing pitchers.
I work on a lot of custom designs, just to try out different techniques and experiment. Here are six recent designs I made that haven’t been posted yet.
I like a couple of these more than the others, and I’m still thinking about making larger sets with some of these designs.
I’d love to hear your feedback on which of these designs you like or dislike.
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.
