One of my favorite pieces so far is the “BO KNOWS” card I did for @BrianAU2000.
Of course before there was that Bo there was this Bo.
Baudilio Jose (Seijas) Diaz was an all-star catcher in 1981 and 1987, not to mention the lead-off man on a key Dale Murphy card.
And by the way, kudos to whatever employee at Topps chose the players for this card. The four would combine for 18 all-star appearances and 65 MLB seasons.
Mr. Diaz was only 37 when he passed away in 1990 in a tragic accident, but his baseball legacy is not forgotten. He is especially revered by his family, including his son and namesake @CoachBoDiaz, who I hope will enjoy this Heavy J Studios “BO SABE BEISBOL” 1/1 made from 1987 Fleer and various 1985 Topps team letters.
The background colors pay tribute to Bo’s native Venezuela, and the caption (in English) reads “BO KNOWS BASEBALL.”
Who would you like to see next in my BO KNOWS series? One of these guys?
Or how about a Bowman Bo Bowman?! 😊
