merging my pictures and cards

1915 Cracker Jack

1915 Cracker Jack – Derek Jeter

Last winter I tried to make some older cards. This is one of those that I tried. I made a Paul Konerko version and this one at the same time. I realized that I really needed to do some tweaking on this one, but thought that since this is how I made it then it should get released that way. I like the idea of the set, and will work on this one a little before putting another one out. (more…)

1915 Cracker Jack – Paul Konerko

Since I am breaking new ground I might as well smash it. After posting the 1952 Topps card today I thought I would try a Cracker Jack card. The card was interesting to make because I had to basically do it from scratch. I had the actual card in photoshop, but to make the backgrounds match I had to erase everything in the red. I found some fonts that looked close to the 1915 design. I also had some trouble getting the picture to match. In the end I am not too sure what to think of the card. I have a Jeter card that I made at the same time, but I am not sure if it will ever see the light of day. I may have to try another and see if I can do better. (more…)
