A nice birthday gift from my wife this past December was getting the parts needed to get my desktop computer back up and running. That's where I do nearly all my custom-card work, and attempts to do so elsewhere just make me feel like I've got my dominant hand tied behind my back. So after the big move and a year and half of basically being sidelined from making customs, I've finally returned to messing around in Photoshop. It's been a blast creating cards again, and you readers can expect the blog to once again be peppered with customs going forward, likely resulting in an uptick of posting.
And here's the first output from my custom comeback. This one is actually more of a "reproduction" than a straight custom. Keith Olbermann, the celebrity baseball card insider and media personality, recently shared a photo of a couple proof cards from 1972 Topps that were changed before the set went to press.
Wow, this post was originally supposed to be like, "Hey, I made a Dick Allen custom"-- short and sweet-- but I guess this became a "deep dive" into that reused photo.
That's it for today, but more customs and a flat-rate box recap from John Miller are on the horizon. Thanks for reading.
