History of Joakim Soria: 1985 Topps   1 comment

History Of Joakim Soria 1985 custom cardI really like how this one came out. 1985 Topps is actually one of the simplest designs that I have attempted to replicate. I think what makes this card for me is the picture. I like pictures that don’t look like every other picture you see of a guy. This one is of Soria, probably during spring training judging by his hat, sitting in the dugout. I even like the players in both the foreground and the background, it make the picture interesting.

I know CSD did a 1985 Joakim Soria card so I hope my doing so doesn’t steal any of his momentum.

I will give a quick update on my “History of Joakim Soria” project. It seems to be the project that has held my interest best out of anything that I have done. Even my original design “Just Fair ’11” has lost momentum to me. I will keep visiting it but likely won’t ever keep daily updates on it.

My estimations have Topps having 61 years of cards out right now, (I’m counting 1951 for now) Right now I have 41 of the designs done and Soria cards made. I think this is the 9th I have posted so I am pretty far ahead of the curb. A quick breakdown by decade: the 1970’s and 1980’s are completed. 1990’s I have 7 of 10 years done and 5 from each the 2000’s and 1960’s and just 3 from the 1950’s. If there is any years you would like to see posted, post a comment and I will try to move them to the top of the list.

  1. That is a very good looking card. Much better than mine. I wish I had started my set last year with a better template.
