A Car And A Card

When I posted recently about the model kits I had built in the last 18 months or so, I left one out. Since I'm a completest I wanted to show it to you, but with a sports card theme, since this is my sports card blog and I don't have a blog for my models.
I finished this Monogram '29 Ford Roadster Pickup kit for an Instagram build-off last year. I modified it with period wheels and a Chevy hood.

I tried to pick out a baseball card that matched the color of the kit, obviously my first thought was of the Pirates. I also remembered that '87 Donruss was a black-bordered set. And I wanted a card with a player wearing mostly black but with some obvious yellow. This Junior Ortiz card fit all the criteria.

So there you have it, A Car And A Card.
Hey, maybe I'll make this a regular topic!
