Mr. Miyagi

In my never ending quest to leave no Karate Kid custom card stone unturned, I present to you Mr. Miyagi's 1984 Donruss style baseball card.

This is the first card I'll have made using the a 1984 Donruss style design.  This card plays up Mr. Miyagi being in full catcher gear while training Daniel-San on the art of the punch in the original Karate Kid movie.  Now that we know Mr. Miyagi's actual first name as "Nariyoshi" -thanks to the Cobra Kai series translating it from Japanese written form in The Karate Kid Part II and then used on Miyagi's headstone in the Cobra Kai series- I was able to incorporate that on this card instead of just his "Mr." moniker. 

Then came the card back.  I did a little research on the Miyagi character so the card bio area of the card got the richness that Mr. Miyagi deserves. 

I'm real happy with how this one turned out and excited to add it to all the other Karate Kid customs I've made.
