The two cards in my blog’s banner actually predate my collection by several months. I love spending time in Photoshop fooling around and remaking card designs from the past. With Hamilton, I suffered from a distinct lack of good photographs, but I think the shot from Mother’s Day of him on the Fleer card makes up for it. Its a beautiful picture, and the bright colours on the card really stand out, even if they are gaudy. 1991 Fleer was uglier than sin, but it was really easy to remake, and it was also the first pack of baseball cards I ever opened.
I am thinking of printing out those two customs and trying to get them signed through spring training. And, I am looking forward to making a few new Texas Rangers ones this year.
