a baseball card celebration of the dodgers and the infield of my youth.

1982 fleer redux
it's not too often you run across an opportunity to recreate a semi-classic early 80's superstar special card. or maybe it's just the effort that is lacking. anyway, i decided to give a modern dodger twist to an old classic - it's not really a card that should have been, more of a card that still could be:
1982 fleer superstar special casey & blake
an homage, of course, to the 1982 fleer steve & carlton
not too bad, although the getty photo i used is not blurry enough to truly capture the 1982 fleer vibe. enjoy!
i collect dodgers cards, any and all cards featuring steve garvey, ron cey, dave lopes or bill russell, all topps cards of the players who were featured in the 1978 topps set as dodgers, cards featuring dodger stadium, o-pee-chee variations, and cards showing the double play turn at second base. i am also currently working on my 1971 topps set, and i am starting to put together a 1974 topps set as well. i have a lot of cards to trade!
