Fun Cards: 1977 Topps Lemmy

Lemmy

My wife and I busted a box of 1991 Pro Set MusiCards over the weekend. That was a blast, and I had fun looking at all the cards. Motörhead was even featured in the set. But I couldn’t get past the thought that they would look so much cooler on the baseball card designs from their “rookie” years. I’ve done this for Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, KISS (including Bruce Kulick and Vinnie Vincent), and most recently David Bowie, so I figured it was time to immortalize Lemmy Kilmister on a 1977 Topps-style “fun card.”

Goodbye, Lemmy Kilmister

(24 December 1945 – 28 December 2015)

The immensely influential and popular Lemmy, singer and bassist for Motörhead, passed away today “after a short battle with an extremely aggressive cancer.” He had just been diagnosed on Saturday.
