I’m back again, it’s been a long time I know, but I wanted to put some of my newest stuff on here for all to see. Since last year I’ve been following Bournemouth after their promotion to the top tier. They had a solid first season and with that success they went on to sign their first star largest transfer in landing Jordan Ibes from Liverpool.
As a soccer newbie, I can’t explain why this is a great signing or not. I just know that it’s exciting to see such a young prospect land with the team you follow. For these 1961 Fleer style cards I wanted to do a series of young prospect signature cards. I’ve made a few, I will turn them into real cards. Right now I have seen some Jordan Ibe cards on eBay but all with Liverpool and none with the Cherries. So here is his first Bournemouth card. Let me know what you think of it and of Jordan Ibes.
Player information: I got this signature off of ebay, mainly because of the age of the player. He broke into the major leagues in 1901 with Cleveland. He is a subject in the famous T206 set of 1909 – 1911. He was listed as Livingstone in the set. Just before he passed away in 1977, he was the last surviving player of the inaugural year for the American League. Since he died in the 1970s, there aren’t a whole lot of autographs of him around. However if you want to find out, just click here and look.
This one is one of my personal autographs that was a cut plain index card. I decided that the Mystery Cuts template was the best to use. So I recreated it, with some of my own spin. Obviously the card is not an Upper Deck card but because the printing is so sharp you would have a tough time knowing that. This is not a for sale kind of thing, this is just something I did for my personal collection so that I could encapsulate the cut autograph.
When I was a kid, my dad used to tell me stories about Bell and how obscenely fast he was. I am sure he was quick, but probably not as quick as my dad says. Decided a few years ago that I would like to get a cut autograph of him. This one was purchased off eBay and came with a PSA/DNA certificate. Cost wise it was about $25 I believe and I was thrilled to make it into a cut autograph card. Unfortunately I don’t have this template anymore, it was on a thumb drive that got destroyed in an unfortunate accident. At some point I am going to remake this template because it is one of my all time favorites.
