    My 1st Booklet style custom

    Well I started playing around with an idea of a booklet and building one.Please keep in mind I have Zero design ability so this first one was made from leftovers of my 1986 Mets custom set.I wanted a fat book that would accommodate a sweet spot sig,full letter patch or even a bat barrel or knob.I made one side 1/4 inch thick and the other slightly thinner at 3/16 or so.The card opens like a real book similar to some of the Football Mem cards I have seen.I didn't get fancy and hollow any of the cards out to place an item in them.I only wanted to build the card on my first go.I am in the process of a building a traditional booklet card using what I have and my limited design ability.I will post that one when it's done here as well.

    Nice! What kind of paper did you use for the binding? Do you think it will hold through multiple opening/closings or will it start to tear quickly?

    Hi,thanks.The paper is the same printing paper used for the images with a thin black stock added to it.As far as strength and durability you can open it a thousand times and it will keep it's integrity.

    P.S, great customs,did you do the designs?I love the Back to The Future set.

    Yes, I did it all my self. Besides the 3 shown in the signature, I have 4 more BTTF at PSA; Lea Thompson, C. Lloyd, M.J. Fox and Mary Steenburgen. Can't find small signatures of either of the girlfriends; Claudia Wells and Elizabeth Shue.

    great craftsmanship. I have made a couple booklet cards and I just keep my booklet binding straight. This way it will never tear or get that bent card look. I'm sure some people would prefer them to fold up, but I just like them for display.

    Very nice.

    Crisp, crisp corners. Looks very authentic.

    I've never dabbled in the booklets but seeing yours might light that fire.

    Great job.
