Artist James Henry Smith just finished up this Frank Thomas portrait that Topps will use for their ’52 Bowman style promo set which will be given away during the 34th National Sports Collectors Convention this year.  Other players in the set will include Mike TroutErnie Banks, Bryce Harper, Geno Smith, Tavon Austin, EJ Manuel, and Eddie Lacy.  Topps will give away 100 copies of each card every day of the NSCC to those who open (5) packs of a Topps or Bowman product at their booth.  Then they’ll wrap things up by giving away the original pieces of art that will be autographed by the players.
