I received a lot of feedback on the 1976 Braves Card That Never Was I posted last week. Thank you for the feedback and ideas. Keep 'em coming.
This week, after I created the DAHOF Facebook page I connected with a friend that runs a page called The 1975 Topps Traded Project. He requested that I attempt a new DA Braves card using the 1975 template. I did not want to re-use the same image from last week (that would be something Topps would do) -- instead I searched and searched to find a suitable late career DA image. After a couple of aborted attempts, I decided it would be easier if I took a black and white image, colorized and doctored it. Here is the result:
Personally I am very glad Dick Allen never played for the Atlanta Braves. If he had agreed to go to Atlanta in the spring of 1975, I would not be the Phillies Phan I am today.
