History of Joakim Soria: 1984 Topps   5 comments

History Of Joakim Soria 1984 Topps custom cardIt has been way too long since my last “History of Joakim Soria” post. I have a lot more years ready to go I just get distracted with my other projects and don’t get them posted enough. This post is dedicated to 1984 Topps. Definitely one of Topps classic designs but I am not a huge fan of it. I actually consider it the retarded cousin of 1983 Topps. 1983 Topps had a smooth, curvy design with the nice inset picture and Topps tried to go back to the same design template and just square things up. It ends up being too rigid in my opinion. I also do not like the font for the team name or the pink background behind the mugshot. I’ve picked on it enough, it is still a classic Topps design no matter my opinion. I like the picture here and how it fits on the card, I’ve often said how much I like pictures that are a little unusual and this one fits the bill. Look for another “History of Joakim Soria” installment soon.

  1. Love the midget players in the background there

  2. Also, although I haven’t found the exact font for it, I used Corbel for the player name and worked out very nicely.

    Sample: http://harveyberkman.deviantart.com/gallery/29100085#/d3bilif

  3. That font does work far better than anything I found. I traced each letter on mine to match, it works but I have to start over if I want to change teams. Yours have a nice clean look, especially like the Chapman.

  4. The Chapman is my favorite ’84 too. How’d you make the team name?
