1971 Ron Santo

This was one of the toughest cards to convert from football to baseball. First the team font was really tough to duplicate. Another problem was the cartoonish football player in the lower left corner. I replaced it with the cartoon player from the 1964 Topps Baseball checklist. The final problem was the signature Topps included on the 1971 Baseball card. The football cards had no such signature. I considered zooming in to avoid the autograph but it destroyed the look of the card and using a different photo of Santo would defeat the purpose in my mind. So I've resigned myself to leave it in, but wouldn't you know it, the autograph is partially obscured by the cartoon ball player. So this is what we are left with.
