Custom Card: 1985 Topps Football Sal Fasano
Taking the style from another black bordered beauty of a set, 1985 Topps Football, here is a custom of Sal Fasano, cult hero and backup catcher. Fasano spent a brief 25 games stint with the Rockies in 2001, then signed on for spring training of 2009 with Colorado, and then spent all of 2009 with AAA Colorado Springs. Sal spent most of his career jumping from team to team and splitting time between the majors and the minors, he gained a cult following largely because of his Hall of Fame worthy fu manchu. Here is my small tribute to Sal Fasano, the man, the myth, the mustache.
