I was thirteen when I first became aware of the voluptuous model Anna Nicole Smith. I have to believe that’s a very influential age for a boy when it comes to shaping what he finds attractive in a female because Anna Nicole became, for me, the prototype of the ultimate female form. My “type” since then has always been the ultra curvy amazon type.
I thought one of the pictures from the Guess campaign would be perfect to retrofit into a 1991 Score baseball “Dream Team” inspired design. 1991 Score’s base set to me is real bland but no other set can touches that year’s subsets. That years was loaded with a number of attractive and creative subsets.
“Dream Team” was a 13 card subset that featured baseball’s best in artistic black-and-white studio style photographs. It’s pretty easy to see why I chose to match Anna’s photo to this set with one slight variation turning the word 'Team' into 'Girl' because for a period in time Anna Nicole Smith was most certainly my “dream girl”. I’ve actually been wanting to make a card for her for a little while now but I wanted it to be something that was special and made sense from the design standpoint. I think this card achieved both.
