Fun Cards: 1988 Topps Bo Jackson (NFL, baseball-style)

An idea popped into my head Sunday afternoon while I was trying to go to sleep (because that is when the best ideas hit, right?). What if Topps had used the same design for their baseball and football card releases in 1988? Fortunately (?) I did not forget the idea, and when I had some down-time I started messing around and came up with this…

But I didn’t stop with Bo Jackson. I created cards for 32 different NFL players who were active during the 1988 season.

Whoa. I haven’t been a football fan for many, many years, but the 1988 season when the Bengals went to the Super Bowl was a pretty big deal. I remember a lot of the players. So for the next several days I’ll be posting some “fun cards” of 1988 NFLers using the 1988 Topps baseball design. If you have any requests, I’m all ears.
