1975 Ron Santo

Although Ron Santo didn't play in 1975 he still had a 1975 baseball card. In his final card, Ron Santo appearred non-airbrushed in a White Sox uniform for the one and only time. The 1975 Topps football cards had a yellow football helmet with the player's position in it. To adapt the design for baseball I converted it into a circle. I considered making it into a baseball but the white ball against the white border just looked wrong.


  1. His final year on the south side was not pretty. There was no room for him in the infield and he wanted no part of the DH.I love the Sox and Ron Santo, but the combination.....
