Since I've been on a hardcopy custom card making binge lately, I thought I'd incorporate that. So in addition to some real cards from the winner's team of choice, the prize is I'll make a custom card for you. Whatever you want, I'll give my best shot at making it a pseudo reality, and then mail it to you. It can be anything. ANYTHING! (within reason, of course.) Limitations here are it's gotta use photos I can find (or reasonably fake in Photoshop), and the card will use standard, no frills printing/cardstock (so no refractors, foil, relics, lenticular effects, or anything fancy like that). Ideally, you'll tell me, "Here's a cool photo of one of my favorite players (attached or linked); please turn it into a card for me.. perhaps in a 1986 Topps design." Something along those lines, but definitely not limited to that. Could be your favorite TV character, band, your dog, whatever.
[While I'm at it, I should take this opportunity to offer my custom card freelancing for hire. So even if you don't win this contest but really want a custom-made card, you can still get in touch with me about hammering something out. I happily accept money or cards from my wantlist in exchange.]
And like I said, I'll include some decent real cards from the winner's favorite team as well, so even if you're not too excited about fake cards, it's still worth throwing your name in the hat. The bonus cards will be a surprise (depending on what I've got on hand), but you might end up with something nice.
International residents are welcome to enter this contest, though in the event the winner doesn't have a US address, less bonus cards may be included since the prize will likely be mailed via PWE.
Entry period will last a few days, then we'll shake out a winner.
Pimp bonus: If you're so kind as to promote this contest with a link elsewhere such as on your blog and/or other social media (and then leave a comment here to let me know), you'll be eligible for a special "second chance" drawing with an identical prize offering.
Ok, here we go..
Just leave a comment below to enter.
Optional question, if you feel like sharing: Anything in mind for a custom if you win?
Thanks and good luck!
UPDATE 10/26/15: The entry period is now closed! Thanks to all who entered.
