A few days ago, I had a comment from a reader PunkRockPaint who had discovered my blog and ploughed through my musings (such dedication, I didn’t expect, I must admit). He has a great collection of retro themed cards on his MySpace, and he offered to whip up a Hamilton version if he had time.
He found the time, and whipped me up a nice 1981 Topps Josh Hamilton. He picked the design, because it was the year Hamilton was born – and also the year I was born, although I am pretty sure that’s just a coincidence. Great looking card, I like the way his retro cards look ‘old’ whereas mine look all bright and shiny. So, without further ado, here’s Hamilton’s 1981 Topps debut.
Thanks again, Travis – let me know when you get that blog started up so I can add a link to it.
