Here's yet another custom card inspired by an early 90's Upper Deck baseball design. This is done in the style of the inaugural 1989 Upper Deck baseball set with a bit of a golf tweak to suit the subject. That subject being the incredible Paige Spiranac.
Paige is a pro golfer as well as a model/media personality. In the same mold as the other woman I've made cards of recently using the UD designs she's got the game to go along with the good looks. Paige, to me, looks like a real life Barbie doll, and I mean that in the best way possible. I'm not much of a golf enthusiast really but I would make time to check it out if she was playing. Shameless, yes, I'm aware.
In spite of being a pro golfer Paige really doesn't have much of a trading card presence outside of inclusion in Topps' multi-sport 2018 Allen & Ginter set, so I decided to make her a proper, albeit unofficial, rookie card.
