1990 Topps Kent Tekulve

Kent Tekulve pitched from 1974-1989. He is most famous for his submarine-style delivery, his trademark sunglasses, and his time with the Pittsburgh Pirates in the '70's. He has Topps cards for most years that he played, however he is missing cards from the Flagship brand in the 1975, 1989, and 1990 sets (he did get a 1989 Traded card).

Kent set many records for innings pitched by a reliever, games pitched by a reliever, and similar records. He saved 3 games in the 1979 World Series for the Pirates, and was an All-Star in 1980. While probably not quite a Hall of Famer, he certainly should be remembered as a quality pitcher, and perhaps be considered to have his number retired by the Pirates.

This card, as with most 1990 Topps customs I've done, was pretty simple to make, and would've made a nice sunset card. Thanks for checking out my latest custom.
