1981 custom redux: Pete Rose

Yesterday was Pete Rose's 70th birthday. When I think about what that means... I really am getting old. Anyway, Happy Birthday PETE!

As I was sitting on another boring conference call this morning, I started playing around with a new 1981 Topps template. I've always liked the 1981 design and remembered reading a cool post from Doc at Baseball Card Recollections that made some slight, yet dramatic improvements on the original design.

I included a couple of his ideas... and viola... a new concept set for me to work on. I give you the first card of my 1980 World Champs project.
