Basketball Jones

Photobucket ...David Jones, that is.

I think I'm getting better at these. The key is finding cards where I don't have to cut-and-paste names together. I knew I wanted to have ol' Ziggy as a member of the Trailblazers (for obvious reasons), and I lucked out when I found a Sam Bowie card with him on that team. Every aspect of this card works together so well: the design, the typography, the picture... It's almost like it left the printing press like this.

Wishful Thinking

I wish this was a real card. It's sad that Topps didn't issue any cards of Jim after 1968, and his '68 card had the same picture that was on his '67 card. Heck, I wish there was a 1970 card of Jim. It would fit perfectly with the Pilots team set I'm working on.
