Original Carter Sketch Card: Ramon Martinez

I don’t remember how I found out that Ramon Martinez was on the Dominican Republic’s baseball team in the 1984 Olympics. There was probably an article in the paper, and I got the idea to make a card in the style of the 1985 Topps USA Olympic subset. I’m sure the uniform is not right, and he may not have had any facial hair back then either. But I thought it was a decent idea, so I ran with it.

I know there are “bootleg” cards of Will Clark and Barry Larkin, since they were not included in the Topps set, but I’ve never seen another Ramon Martinez card in the style.
