Star Wars... The "Retro-ish" Baseball Card Set

It seems odd to make a card from the current year for a "retro" baseball card set, but I have a good reason. On June 3rd, Disneyland (the original one) is reopening Star Tours! It will be rebranded as Star Tours: The Adventure Continues. Aside from altering the look of the ride, they have made some major changes. It will be in 3D, and there will be up to 54 different ride possibilites with different destinations. I can't wait!

In commemoration of the event, I made a card for the friendly/crazy pilot from the original ride:

PRP Star Wars - #25 RX-24 "Rex"

These newer cards are a lot harder to copy... I had to hand letter the "Disneyland California" in the baseball logo.

Whew! Just got home from my road trip in time to knock this one out for Star Wars Day:

PRP Star Wars - #24 Obi-Wan Kenobi

Design based on: 1965 Topps #411 - Roger Craig

Nice job with the Roger Craig impersonation, Sir Alec! May the fourth be with you.
