The Big Unit 1/1 Randy Johnson Diamondbacks Patch Card
At 6 ft 10 in (2.08 m), Johnson was one of the tallest players in major league history, and was celebrated for his dominant fastballs, which regularly approached, and sometimes exceeded, 100 miles per hour (160 km/h) in his prime. Johnson also threw a hard, biting slider. After struggling early in his career (having won only 64 games by his 30th birthday), he went on to lead his league in strikeouts nine times, and in earned run average, winning percentage, and complete games four times each. Johnson was named one of two (along with Curt Schilling) World Series Most Valuable Players in 2001, with three pitching victories, leading the Diamondbacks to a World Series championship over the New York Yankees in Arizona's fourth season. He won the pitching Triple Crown in 2002.
Johnson's .646 career winning percentage ranks sixth among left-handers with at least 200 decisions and eighth in games started (603) and ninth in innings pitched (4,135.1). Johnson's career elite rankings also include first in strikeouts per nine innings pitched (10.67), third in hit batsmen (188), and tenth in fewest hits allowed per nine innings pitched (7.24). He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2015, his first year of eligibility, and is the first member of the Hall to be depicted in a Diamondbacks uniform on his plaque.

Topps Project 2020 has inspired a growing number of hobbyists to create their own card art. To provide them with support, I'm inviting artists to build their own guest shop! I lend my expertise to mentor and guide them along the way... my ultimate vision is to curate a mini-marketplace for card-inspired artwork.
