Tribute Card - Rich Gossage

This is based on the 1973 Topps design. Okay, it is the 1973 Topps design. I lifted the photo from the Hall of Fame website.

Here is the original 1973 Topps Gossage.

I did this over lunch, using I tried to match the 'original' team colors for the Yankees (purple and black), since that is the team that he entered the Hall as. The fonts aren't quite right, but I can live with them. I'm still working on getting smooth curves in the corners. But I can live with those as well.

I selected the 1973 Topps design as this was Gossage's rookie card. Just my tribute to a Hall of Fame pitcher.

  1. Quite good.
    Aww have to love that Sox uni though. I wish they'd bring that back for retro day.
