big d gets his final tribute

i mentioned in a previous post that i wish topps had made a 1970 don drysdale card as a final tribute to his career. as it stands, the 1969 card was the last regular issue card made for big d.he started 12 games for the dodgers in 69, winning 5. and, while he is recognizable on the dodgers 1970 team card, his retirement apparently precluded him from being captured within the gray borders alone.

until today.

check out the 'shoulda been sunday' feature over at punk rock paint. it's awesome.

(update) here is the card that punk rock paint created. shhhhweeeeet.
