T-205 John Lennon Mock Up

While searching google for baseball cards, (yes, I have no life) I discovered this mock up card of John Lennon on a T-205 card. The T-205 cards are one of my favorite tobacco card designs. I think they look better than the more popular T-206 cards.

After doing a little more snooping, I discovered a whole page of rock star mock up cards. Other gems include Jack White as a Texas Ranger, Joe Strummer as a Phillie, Ian Dury as an Oriole, Mark Mothersbaugh as a Cub, John Lydon as a White Sox player, Thom Yorke as a Senator and Dave Byrne as a Red.

Great stuff! It really looks like there was a lot of time and effort put into these cards. Most of the cards are based off of vintage cards. The newest design is for Jack White's 1987 Topps card. Great job to Lex10, who I assume designed these cards.

The Lennon card was the best. I looked at the rest of his site. Lots of odd stuff.

I had fun looking at all the odd stuff. I enjoyed the old Kitty Kat reel, that he put together from old film stock.

The Lennon is definitely the best of the bunch, but the other cards weren't too shabby either.
