2020 Topps Project 2020 -- Sandy Koufax by Fucci

One of the more exciting things about Topps' Project 2020 is discovering these artist.

For most of us the answers is "never," so I find it refreshing that a hobby we all love is willing to take us on a creative adventure.

Featured above is the Sandy Koufax card created by Toronto-based pop artist Fucci. As you can see, it bears no resemblance to Sandy's actual rookie card. Instead, we see a portrait-styled minimalist drawing, using bright vibrant colors and a faceless caricature of the Hall of Fame pitcher.
