Card #35: Stroke of Inspiration

Today we look at the painting inspired design of the 2016 Diamond Kings release.

The lack of logos for "old timers" doesn't bother me so much. The card features a sleeveless jersey with a long sleeve undershirt worn by Clemente in their home uniform.  It appears that Clemente is wearing a wristband which I rarely seen him wear in other cardboard.

The back of the card features a neat fact about how Clemente switched to a heavier bat in 1961 which turned him from a career .288 hitter to winning the batting title that season with a .351 average.
