Tribute to the Nationals - 1993 Studio Josh Willingham
Josh Willingham, Washington Nationals

Tribute to 1993 Studio
Do you know how hard it is to find a high resolution picture of a Nationals ballcap or jersey? I had no idea! But it was well worth the effort. Per zman's suggestion, I like how it worked out.
After doing this, I can imagine some other cards in the same vein, using classic or historical logos. A Buck O'Neil card with the Kansas City Monarchs logo? How about it?!
The last contemporary team to be represented by a tribute card will be the Minnesota Twins. I'm going to go with Kirby Puckett, per JT's suggestion. Any thoughts on a year/brand? (Edit -- I've got one on the way! But suggestions are always welcome.)
As an aside about the card, I chose Josh Willingham because he is The Sheriff, plain and simple. Also on the short list was Austin Kearns, aka The Locust.
