TWJ on Tumblr…lots of stuff you won’t see here!

I started the TWJ Cards Tumblr to showcase my original design “fun cards” last year, and over the past couple of months have been posting daily updates in the 2013 style. The focus has been exclusively baseball thus far, featuring stars such as Brandon Phillips and Stephen Strasburg, lesser-known big leaguers like Jayson Nix and Eric Sogard, “Phenomenal Future” rookies like Dylan Bundy and Jackie Bradley, managers and mascots.

Another “subset” in the 2013 TWJ style is “Old Schoolers.” Some Hall of Famers like George Brett and Reggie Jackson, others who never quite achieved that pinnacle like Darryl Strawberry and Shawon Dunston, and some guys who should have been inducted long ago, like shortstop Bill Dahlen (pictured below). While modern players like Alan Trammell, Tim Raines, and Dale Murphy are lamented on the blogs because they have been snubbed, players such as Dahlen receive little support or attention.

Dahlen for the Hall of Fame

Dahlen was not only a star in his day, he was a star for the ages and should be remembered as such in the hallowed Halls of Cooperstown. How about it, VC?

If you’re not already following TWJ Cards Tumblr, get over there and do it now, and let me know what players you would like to see included in this year’s set.
