In case you weren't aware, the man most famous for portraying Apollo Creed had an NFL football career, albeit brief.
|1970 Topps football|
I decided to make a 1970 Topps football inspired Carl Weathers for two main reasons; the first being that the late Bob Lemke already did a 1971 style card, and the second being that Carl played the games in 1970 as opposed to one in 1971. I owe Mr. Lemke some credit as he colorized the black-and-white photo that I used for my card so I that's a task I didn't have to take on.
The fonts on this one didn't pose much of a problem, so much of my time was spent cleaning up little imperfections.
I not real confident about getting a TTM success from Mr. Weathers as I've got a few Rocky cards that have been pending for a long, long time. Even if I don't get mine signed it was still a cool card to make.
