When I made the two Seinfeld baseball cards I was reminded that a while back I had saved a picture from a baseball themed episode of The Greatest American Hero.
|1981 Fleer baseball|
This episode originally aired in 1981 so I went with the Fleer baseball inspired design from the same year. I’ve been wanting to use this style ever since first recreating it for my Freaks and Geeks set. I chose to the California Angels color pallet because of the pro team in the episode being the California Stars.
While looking up a couple details on this episode I stumbled upon this blog that also makes custom cards. He too had the idea to make some cards from this episode and much to my surprise I found while reading his write up he linked back to this blog! He included a great write up on the episode unlike my lazy cliff notes. Check out The Writer's Journey for tons of entertaining reads.
