I’m working on a little project for a fellow member of Facebook’s Custom Baseball Cards group. I don’t like Facebook, but the community there has been very supportive and encouraging. I post designs there for feedback, and offer my own input on other people’s designs. If you’re into making your own cards, or just want to see a lot of amazing custom card designs, I recommend checking it out.
Part of the project I’m working on is to create PowerPoint templates for some old Topps designs. I’ve always worked in Photoshop, but some members of the group don’t have access to it. I’m also converting some old hockey card designs into PowerPoint, so don’t be too surprised if a few hockey cards show up here soon.
These two cards were my first creations with custom templates for the 1969 and 1970 Topps designs. I made these templates myself, 100% in Photoshop.
Fun Fact: Ken Griffey Sr. was on my first fantasy baseball team. This was before the internet was a thing. My college roommate & I subscribed to a baseball weekly and added up the stats by hand. I’m so old.
