Digital Premier League Autographs: Jordan Ibes (JA-AU)

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.

2014 Soccer Archives Cut Autograph Prototype – Pele

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.

Inspiration from a Dream – Bad Wax Presents – Mini Soccer Archives

While sleeping overnight, I had a dream about mini cards.  About a year ago, I got a 500 ct. of business cards that had an error on it.  My supervisor told me to just throw it out.  Being the pack rat I am I just couldn’t do it, so I took it home and have been trying to figure out what to do with them.  At first I was going to just do some kind of mini cut autograph (which I might still do).

However I was thinking of the through the mail autograph cards I was doing and  and I thought why not shrink them.  Now I can’t do a TTM mini because there would just be no place to sign.  So I designed a 3″x2″ card without the TTM strip.

Here is the original:

Here is the mini:

So the top one is the size of a regular card, but the bottom one was designated for a business card.  I am going to print this out tomorrow so that you can see the difference.

2014 Score Soccer Rookies Set – SR-HS – Harry Shipp

This set continues to impress.  The Fire logo looks great on the front and back.  No problems really while making this card other than trying to find him in a Fire jersey while being the only person in the photo.  There is actually another person in this photo but thanks to cropping, the are gone.  This weekend is shaping up to be a big card making weekend, with I think 9 cards ready for printing.

Shipp has become a spark plug for the Fire.  He has netted 6 goals and 5 assists in only 19 total games (17 started).  He is yet another great foundation block for this Fire team.
