Airbrushed Football Cards

by fedoratipper - 106 cards (Last updated on Jul. 7, 2017)

2. 1999 Bowman #3 Yancey Thigpen

Since the Oilers changed their name to the Titans, obviously they decided to airbrush the new uniforms on. You be the judge on how accurate they were.

4. 1999 Bowman #19 Tony Banks

Love how crooked the numbers look. Also, you can tell this is airbrushed because that's clearly Ralph Wilson Stadium in the background. Banks played there when the Rams beat the Bills in week 3 in 1998. The Ravens did play the Bills in 1999 but it was at Psinet (Now M&T Bank Stadium)

5. 1999 Bowman #51 Kevin Dyson

See the Yancey Thigpen Card

6. 1999 Bowman #142 Rocket Ismail

The two Panthers players in the background should give you a clue as too who Ismail played for the previous year (The Cowboys did play the Panthers in 1998 though)

7. 1999 Bowman Chrome #13 Chris Spielman

Again, note the crooked numbers on his shoulders.

8. 1999 Bowman - Gold #140 Eddie George

See the Yancey Thigpen Card (I'd say this is the worst of the 3 1999 Titans cards on this list)

10. 2000 Bowman #4 James Stewart

The clue is the colors on that board (At least I think that's what it is) behind James Stewart which are obviously the Jaguars

Cool list! I remember the 2009 and 2010 Topps cards as they were so poorly airbrushed. Topps must have fired the company or person that did the airbrushing because it was HORRIBLE!

@Carthage44 Thanks! Yeah those one's were terrible, especially the 2010 set (See the Roy Halladay card from the 2010 Topps Baseball set for proof of that.)
