While Damon's a primary character, the book also highlights his (former great) father Brock, so I felt inspired to do a 1976 Topps "Father & Son"-style card.
My pair copies #66 most directly, Gus and Buddy Bell. (Read its card profile at Project 1976.) Seeing Gus' 1953 Topps card and knowing that Satchel Paige appeared in the set cemented the idea for me. He became Brock and Angels pitcher Ervin Santana stands in as the son. (The autograph's actually Ann Rutherford, whose first name's tolerably close to "Damon" when written.)
