Custom Card: 1962 Topps Football Carlos Gonzalez
Football season is now over, which means Baseball is just around the corner. Here is a custom based one of my top three vintage football designs, 1962 Topps. The original set featured rookie cards of Mike Ditka, Fran Tarkenton and Roman Gabriel, a tough set similar to 1971 Topps baseball with the condition sensitive black borders. A nice simple design, two photos, one usually a head-shot with an black and white action photo to the left. The larger photo is from a road game against the Dodgers, while the black and white is just after hitting a walk off home run to complete the cycle against the Cubs.
