ALLOW A MAN A MOMENT AND A DREAM...MY 1978 "DREAM" ROOKIE CARD

Take a look at this:


Yeah I know, I'm pushing it imagining a once in a lifetime rookie card like this.
Topps didn't even have a rookie card for "infielders" in their 1978 set.
But man, what a card THIS could have been! Two Hall of Famers and two others who arguably should find their way in at some point.
Of course we all know that Molitor and Trammel were on the same card in the 1978 set, making for an already fantastic rookie card for collectors.
But with Whitaker on another card, and Ozzie Smith ignored altogether that year, I took all four of them and created a "dream-card" for people that care about these things!
It reminds me of the dream-card they gave out at a card convention years ago that featured Tom Seaver and Nolan Ryan on a 1967 rookie card.
Can you imagine how incredible that would have been?! To have a rookie card featuring THOSE two?! 
Anyway, for the 1978 dream card I have here, I also used a different Molitor image, since the one Topps used on their rookie card was a colorized black and white shot, and not an attractive image to say the least.
Could have been THE rookie card for the decade…
Oh well, hope you all can at least enjoy THIS creation here…
