Fun Cards: 1972 Topps Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Bernie Leadon, and Randy Meisner (The Eagles)
The debut Eagles album was released in June, 1972, and contained such classic songs as “Witchy Woman,” “Peaceful, Easy Feeling,” and “Take It Easy.” The band featured Glenn Frey on guitar, Don Henley on drums, Bernie Leadon on guitar, and Randy Meisner on bass. The four members shared vocal duties.
Continuing the series of musician “rookie” cards, I made some tweaks to the 1972 Topps design. The font is not an exact match, and there was more work than I’m accustomed to, but I’m happy with the result.
Perhaps down the road I will finish up with a 1974 Don Felder, 1976 Joe Walsh, and 1979 Timothy B. Schmit to mark their recording debuts with the group. But for now, the original four Eagles deserve their own post.
