Fun Cards: 1978 Topps Prince

Prince

I’m still reeling from the news of Prince’s passing yesterday morning. This year has been particularly harsh, especially when it comes to music icons. David Bowie, Glenn Frey, Lemmy, Merle Haggard, and now Prince. I listened to several songs from Purple Rain and 1999 last night on the way to work and on my lunch break. Such an amazing talent. These lyrics from “When Doves Cry” were especially poignant: “How can you just leave me standing? Alone in a world that’s so cold?”

Prince’s first album, For You, was released in 1978 on Warner Bros. Records, and as I have been doing with several other acts, I have featured him on a 1978 Topps-style card.

Watch Prince blow the minds of Tom Petty, Jeff Lynne, and Steve Winwood on this cover of the Beatles’ “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” from the 2004 Hall of Fame Induction.
