2016 Pennant Throwbacks


Time to throw it back to an insert from my first year of blogging, Pennant Throwbacks. Being the "retro" product of the Spirit line makes it a no-brainer.


Like the 2016 Pennant base design, these are more "modern retro" and don't call back to the reeeeeally old eras like Allen & Ginter and Gypsy Queen do. The design is simple with just a grainy solid color background and player cutouts with them in their throwback duds. The team logos are of the era captured by the uniforms. The Choo is an example of the relic parallel, here featuring the Rangers' baby blues.


The back keeps the elements from the front with a brief write-up of the throwback game depicted. I tried to replicate the toothy feel that the printed cards would have, diluting the colors a bit and making them less vibrant than a modern glossy card would show.

    Beautiful design. So simple....but some of the best things are.

    Great work.

  2. Shame on you Rizzo for the fake two in one stirrups.

    Also, that date is incorrect. The Cubs and Sox played that game you mention on the back August 14th, not the 18th.

    1. Ah, thanks for the heads up. Must've forgotten to change it from the Correa card.
