1979 Stickball Champ
I thought about this particular card quite some time ago but held off due to a personal technicality. I like to create cards of different pop culture type things that Topps or the other card brands didn't make cards for back-in-the-day. Technically Topps did have a couple of cards of Sly playing stickball with the neighborhood kids in their 1979 Rocky II card set.
Most of the design for this card is pretty self explanatory. I used the 1979 Topps baseball inspired template and the colors that went with the Phillies' player's cards that year. I replaced the baseball illustration with that of a stickball ball and retro'd the older Topps logo with PCb. mock up.
