I wish I had the skills to make custom cards. More so than learning to use Photoshop, which I can get by on, I think my imagination and creativity have a lot to be desired.
So, I love checking out the different blog to see custom card creations. So many of you guys are really talented.
I just got around to posting this now, but Topher at Crackin' Wax created this Derek Jeter 1/1 card for me. I absolutely love it and will go into my collection. It's a physical card, by the way. The design is simple, yet elegant and I could never come up with something like this.
Over at The Mojo Beard, Beardy look at look at how fun 2010 Goudey could have been this year. Since Upper Deck no longer has baseball license, he created a few cards at request to give collectors a feel of what their favorite players would have looked like.
I really, really like this "Kouz for Sooz," (How cool would it be if one of his actual cards said that?)
When it comes to the guys out there who create custom cards, the fun thing is we never have to wonder what something would have looked like.
Forgive my ignorance, but who are all the custom card creators out there. I would like to give all of them their due.
