2014 Soccer Archives Cut Autograph Prototype – Pele

pele cut auto template


I was messing around with a mini cut autograph card in the design of 1985 Topps football.  Again, I wanted to use the hundreds of business cards I have to do with whatever I want.  I’ve always loved making cut autograph cards.  Of course how many cut soccer autographs are there out there that I can do.  Still though, I really like how this looks and at a minimum I will make the Pele one.

What do you think about it.  I still have to come up with a back.


Mystery Cuts Set – JB-MC – Cool Papa Bell

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.

What do you think of it?
