Negro Leagues Hall of Fame drawing by Mike Theuer
This poster-sized drawing was commissioned by the Negro League Hall of Fame. It is of Oscar Carleston for whom there are few photos . . . and no card! Instead, this fake card was my idea and pieced together from a photo of Oscar here, a ball-field background there and an old card. The handwriting was based on a sample from my 92-year-old neighbor. It was drawn on Canson bright white paper with a 4B pencil.
