“Singles Snapshot” is a new segment focused on one single, spectacular 90’s football card at a time. Just a couple pictures and a quick blurb about the card. Without further ado, here’s “Singles Snapshot”:
This card is a perfect portrait of a defensive tackle. Gilbert Brown was a force in the trenches for a great Packers defense, and he looks the part here – dirty and intimidating. I love the contrast between the elegant, foil-etched background and the guy who looks like a hybrid of The Hulk and a Storm Trooper! The vertical fade from gold to green in the foil is well done, too.
