Custom Card: 1970 Topps Wil Nieves
First custom card in a while, newest Rockies catcher Wil Nieves. Nieves was called up from Colorado Springs a few weeks ago when Ramon Hernandez went on the disabled list and is serving as Wilin Rosario's back-up. Nieves was signed by Colorado in December of 2011 to be the third catcher, after stops with the Brewers, Nationals, Yankees and Padres.
I like the simplicity of the 1970 design, although a logo somewhere would have been nice and the lack of team colors make the set kind of bland, but all this considered it's still a nice vintage set.
