Custom Card: 1987 Topps Joe Beimel

There is something I love about the 1987 Topps design, one of the first sets I collected, although in Canada we got the O-Pee-Chee version, I still love those tacky wood borders. The hardest thing about making customs of this year is the weird font Topps used for the player name, and the fact that no real Colorado Rockies cards exist before 1993, I think I got fairly close here after a some trial and error. This Joe Beimel fills a hole in my 2009 Rockies playoff roster team set, as I could not stand looking at the placeholder of him with the Dodgers. I printed it off on photo paper and it looks good in a binder, but the final product was a little flimsy. Back of card after the jump.
