1983 Fleer – Starlin Castro (Special)
One of the cards that I really enjoyed as a kid was the Speed and Power card of Rickey Henderson and Reggie Jackson. I saw card, but it was actually two cards that you put together to form one card. I had a cool picture of Juan Pierre stealing a base, and Starlin Castro holding up his mitt. I made two separate 1971 Topps cards out of that one picture. As the cards sat in my folder waiting to be released on this site I noticed how they almost could be put together. That is when I came up with the idea for this card. It was a little trickier than I thought it would be to get both sides to line up. My first attempt left me with a picture that was a little off. Using the grid function in my program though allowed me to do it with ease. After the jump I have included an image of the card as one piece.
I made this Fleer card from scratch. I could not find any of the speed and power cards in my image search that would have been big enough for what I needed to do. I copied the Fleer Super Star Specials logo to put in each corner, but other than that everything is mine. As you can see the cards put together look pretty cool.
