Catcher's Nightmare

This awesome image speaks for itself...

Back in 1997, when I first got a computer in my bedroom (complete with AOL and a 28.8 modem), this picture was my desktop wallpaper. It popped into my head recently, and I went about trying to find it. Thanks to the Internet archive, I was able to got back to the A's website on January 20, 1997, and pull up the same image.

Based on the look of the art, and the border that is used, I'm pretty sure this was used in an early issue of A's Magazine, possibly sometime around 1983. If someone knows the exact source, please let me know. I use the archive for work every once in awhile, but I'd never thought to use it to search out Rickey items. Now I'm interested in what else I'll be able to find.

On the same page, I found this other cool piece of A's art, using the same Rickey image as above.
