1985 Topps – Lastings Milledge
By now you have probably figured out the trend of seeing a new ’85 Topps design, and then seeing the 2011 csd Custom card of the player. This time though I changed it up, and updated the card a little. I don’t think that I will be using the ’85 Topps design for all the cards, but in this case I thought that it would be appropriate. Lastings was born in 1985, and I thought I would copy Steve over at White Sox Cards. He does a great job with his birth years set.
This picture was taken on Opening Day as Lastings was getting an at bat late in the game. The Sox had a big lead, and they let almost everyone in. Lastings came in and hit a double right away. The picture is a little off because I was shooting straight into the sun. Any other day that weekend in Cleveland I could have moved almost anywhere I wanted, but it was crowded that day. Besides it was so much warmer in the sun.
