Cards That Never Were: John Fuller Topps 1975

Cards That Never Were is a recurring series in which I create virtual cards for players missed in various sets. It is a concept I have borrowed from far to many to list, but I appreciate all of their efforts.
Once again, the Custom Baseball Cards Facebook group saved me an effort. The Custom Baseball Cards group has thousands of creations from other talented folks. There are cards all sports and even plenty of non-sports cards, too. Many of my card creations are also found in the group.
Outfielder John Fuller was selected by the Atlanta Braves in the 11th round of the 1968 MLB Draft. Fuller made it to the majors for three games in the 1974 season. Playing in three games, he went one for three at bat. His career seemingly ended after that season.
Fuller did not appear on any Topps cards. I intended to create a 1975 card for Fuller, but discovered that Lynn of the Custom Baseball Cards group had already done a fantastic job with it. Not needing to duplicate the effort and acknowledging Lynn did it better than I could have anyway, I didn't need to do my own version. Once again, thank you to Lynn.
