1985 Topps – Brad Mumma
Brad is a pitcher from my hometown of LaPorte, IN. He spent time in the Blue Jays organization, but ended up pitching for the Joliet Jackhammers in 2009. I was at a game he pitched against the Railcats and took a few pictures of the hometown boy. I used the template that I used to make the 25th anniversary White Sox set for this card. I know that it doesn’t look like the actual 1985 Topps card, but I really like how it looks.
When I saw this picture of him waiting for a batter I knew that it had 1985 Topps written all over it. I thought that it would be cool to make a few cards of the hometown boy. He is now out of baseball, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still make cards of him.
