stan wall pitched in the dodgers' minor league system for 7+ years before making his big league debut in 1975. he spent all of 1976 with the dodgers, and then split his 1977 season between the big club and aaa. topps saw fit to include wall in both the 1976 and 1977 sets, but denied him an entry in their 1978 masterpiece. but, thanks to my 1978 topps burger king/update dodger project, he is now given that final tribute with the card that should have been.
it was tough to find a color photo of wall, so i used his 1977 topps card, more closely cropped.
then, my hard drive crapped out in september before i could post my creation. as a result, i had to go back to the drawing board, as i could not recover the image or the psd file. it was easy enough to recreate, but i used the time to locate a better image to use. i found a corbis photo of wall and johnny podres behind the batting cage and decided to use that image instead.
