It’s Alive – From Digital to Reality 2

I created the next three physical cards from my digital creations.  All will be sent out in the coming days.  Big thanks to Bradley Wright-Phillips and Mike Magee for showing their appreciation of the cards on Twitter.  Here are the pictures of the fronts and backs of the cards:

All three cards came out looking good and I have already sent the Mike Magee one out for signature as of today.  The other two along with the Clint Dempsey will be going out during the week.  I am trying to find some home addresses for the players but it’s proving to be a difficult endeavor since most of the players only live part – time in the cities in which they play.  Also the TTM database at sportscardforum is not as good when it comes to MLS players.  I hope to change that soon.  Let me know how you like the cards or if you think they need some tweaking.

When Digital Creations Become Real

This evening, I decided to create the cards that I designed.  Then sometime this weekend I am going to send them out to get signed.  I am not saying it went without a hitch:

When sticker machines go bad.  I didn’t realize that I was out of sticker paper and the front of the Dempsey card just rolled on up into the machine.  However when all was said and done the cards came out beautifully and my toughest critic (my wife) actually liked them.  Here is what they looked like:

I am very curious to know what you think.  On the sad side, something got corrupted on my computer and I lost my Topps 1985 template.  So tonight I am going to work on those.
