And yep, I don't half-ass my customs-- full backside! It looks a lot clearer in hand than in the photo. I don't have the capability to make holograms, but wanted my own unique "security mark" like Upper Deck, so I've included a glow-in-the-dark circle that I've initialed. I thought that was a pretty clever idea to deter unauthorized copies while giving it my own personal touch.
I'll admit I wanted to think up something with "commercial appeal" so that I could possibly sell a few to recoup some of the funds I've sunk into my newfound card-making sub-hobby (hey, different kinds of fancy paper and other necessary accoutrement ain't cheap). I figure there are already a bunch of jagoffs trying to make a buck on eBay selling customs, might as well give it a shot myself. Granted it would have been better had I put this card out during the height of Bryant-mania earlier in the season, though I think he's still pretty hot with collectors.
If you're interested in getting one of these cards for yourself (either buying or in trade for cards), drop me an email. Thanks!
