->> If I remember right, there was an Upper Deck card of him in the early to mid 90's with a photo of him with one of his cameras on it. Most of my collection is gone, or I'd try to find it.

->> Jason- the great V.J. Lovero photographed Johnson in Seattle in 1992 with his Canon F-1 for Sports Illustrated:

This is the image that was used on the Upper Deck card probably as V.J. worked closely with The Deck for many years.

->> Brad - thanks for that link, but the one I'm thinking of was used on the back of the card and showed Johnson behind a 300 or 400 2.8. I've looked online all morning and can't find it anywhere.

->> I posted this before in another thread talking about Randy Johnson being a photographer.

In 1997 Score put out a series of baseball insert cards of more light hearted photos that he took.

->> I've shot with Randy as have a few other SS members at a few NHRA races helping Rebilas out. Really cool guy and genuinely loves photography and is there to learn as much as he can. I never really followed baseball too much so I wasn't aware of his reputation as a player but meeting him in person its the complete opposite of that.
