    First attempt at customs.

    My first attempts at making customs.


    I'm sending a Ted Williams card to Fred Caligiuri (reasoning is on the back of his custom) and a Satchel Paige card to Chuck Stevens (again, reasoning is on the custom)... But, I also wanted something with their picture and story on it. They didn't really have any cards (at least none available for sale that I could find), so I made these.

    The designs are based on 1941 Play Ball and 1948 Swell Sports Thrills. I chose these sets as the basis because they coincided with the events on the card backs.

    The Caligiuri card was toughest, as he only had one picture I could find online, and, it is B&W. The '41 Play Ball set was color art, so I colorized the picture, then used an art filter on it. The toughest part was getting the backs lined up with the fronts, and I wouldn't have been able to do it without the help of the guy at Staples.

    Thanks in advance for any feedback (even critical feedback).
