Card number five of the Soccer Archives Set is Brad Davis. I just noticed that the S is Davis is partially chopped off. I’ll have to fix that before printing. I have noticed quite a few cropping errors since I am writing about the cards before printing. I highly recommend that you do the same when making your own cards. Sometimes after a creation you become so elated with yourself that you miss the little things. I also caught the cropping error on the Sean Johnson card the other day. Text seems to be the biggest of my worries.
Another problem I have run across is that my particular ink jet printer doesn’t do reflections well. The Clint Dempsey card has a spot on his head where he is perspiring, this doesn’t translate well to ink jet printers. It almost looks like a smudge so be careful when you are choosing a subject picture.
Back to Brad Davis, he has been in the league for a long time. Drafted in 2002 after a great two years at St. Louis University, he has been on the Houston Dynamos since 2005 where essentially he has been a starting XI since day one. He also has been a fixture on the USMNT since 2005 and even started against Germany in this year’s World Cup. Essentially a must have for this year’s set.
