View Full Version : My Custom Cards, and how I get them back signed every time!

So I came up with the idea this Friday to make my own cards. I just glue them on the sides of a white decoy. Printed on photopaper so the glue doesn't sink through it's working out pretty well.

Here's the design:

I know, I've seen better. But this is about the best I can do and I think it will work out well. So how do I get them auto'd? I ask the players on twitter if they would like a card made of them, and if I would could I send it to them to get signed. I like going this route because now I know whenever I send one out I'll get it back. I just started asking this weekend and I already have...

-Chris Baker, Seahawks TE (Said I better said two because he wants one)
-Kam Chancellor, Seahawks Safety
-Donnie Avery, Rams WR (Waiting for the addy though)
-D'Andre Goodwin, Washington Huskies WR
-CJ Wilcox, Washington Huskies Guard (Said I better said two because he wants one)
-LV Ware, minor league player for the Braves.

Anyway, I'll post here when I get them back signed. Lemme know what you guys think of the concept and the card design.

Got Ricky Sapp's addy from the Eagles, who said he would sign one. And Adam Jones from the Orioles also said he would sign one.

Chris Baker also asked that I send two so he can keep one.

If you get an Avery address, can you send me a PM with it if you don't mind?

You got it, he hasn't said anything since he responded to me. So I'll let you know!

Here's a first.. A player messaged me first. Asking if I could make basketball cards.

He's from Washington, Justin Dentmon. Now in the D-League playing for the Texas Legends. He's a really nice guy, made him 3 different customs (1 in UW uni, 2 in Legends) So I sent 6 in all.. 3 for me to sign back and 3 for him to keep. I wasn't sure on return shipping and he just told me he can cover that and send me a GU wristband or somethin, pretty sweet. :)

That is ridiculously awesome! I made a twitter account but I am still new to all the controls, could you take a quick minute to explain retweets, tweets and messages? Like I am never sure if I am contacting the athlete himself or just writing on my own twitter. I'm sorry for being a noob.

This is really an ingenious idea.
