Now here's a card that would have been nice to pull out of a pack! (Even though I am admittedly NOT a fan of the "multi-player" rookie cards).
Like I previously did with the 1978 dream rookie card with Ozzie Smith, Paul Molitor, Lou Whitaker and Alan Trammell, I couldn't resist designing a 1974 "Rookie Infielders" card with Robin Yount and George Brett.
Take a look:
Now it wasn't beyond the realm of possibility to have the two future Hall of Famers appear on one of those multi-player rookie cards in the '74 set.
But I DO understand why Topps didn't give them a look at the time.
I took an already existing card (#604) and replaced Terry Hughes and John Knox (sorry guys!) with Brett and Yount.
Teamed up with two other future solid major leaguers in Andre Thornton and Frank White, and this card would have been a killer at the card shows of the late 1980's when the rookie-card explosion happened.
Thankfully, because of the wonderful world of Photoshop, we can all go ahead and "fix" these so many years later.
