merging my pictures and cards

1985 Fleer In Action – Ricardo Allen

In a few minutes I will be leaving to watch the Boilermakers open up the season against Middle Tennessee State. It is not the biggest matchup in the nation today, but it is the most interesting to me. I thought that I would celebrate the opening of football season with a custom card. This is a custom card blog after all. For some reason I have been wanting to try the ’85 Fleer Football cards for a while. I made this one very quickly so it may be a bit off, but for the most part it captures the essence of that card.

I took this picture last season as Ricardo Allen was completing a 94 yard interception return against Michigan. I loved how Purdue Pete was in the background escorting Allen across the goal line. I knew that I wanted to put the picture on a card, and figured that the team centered ’85 Fleer set would be perfect. Maybe Allen can give me another photo opportunity today.
