merging my pictures and cards

1986 McDonald’s

1986 McDonalds – Clay Matthews

Here is a set that I loved to make. When I was growing up you had to go to McDonalds to get these cards. Living near Chicago all that they had around me were cards of the team that had just won the Super Bowl. Of course I decided when I could that I would make my own.  (more…)


1986 McDonald’s – Donald Driver

The story to most who follow this blog might be old by now, but as a kid I didn’t have these cards available to me. I had to settle for cards of the Bears. It is nice now to be able to make my own cards so that I can see what the players today would have looked like on this classic card. (more…)


1986 McDonald’s – James Jones

Here is another card that I made last season while the Packers were on their way to the Super Bowl. I thought that since they opened up the playoffs today that I would try and post the rest of my cards from then. If they can somehow make it back to the Super Bowl then I will have an empty folder to fill with new Packer cards.  (more…)


1986 McDonald’s – Ryan Grant

Tonight there is a very slim chance that I attend the Packers game in Indy so I thought I would post some more of the cards that I made over the winter after the Pack won the Super Bowl. This McDonald’s design is very cool to me because I could not get them at the time. Where I lived I had to settle for Bears cards. Now through the magic of Photoshop I can have my own. (more…)


1986 McDonald’s – Nick Barnett

Just because he was not on the postseason roster does not mean that I cannot have Nick in my celebration cards. Nick is a great linebacker that was missed this season. In the end they won without him, but they had to go through some growing pains before they got over his loss. I really like this set if you can’t tell already. I have four more of these cards to release as the days go by. (more…)


1986 McDonald’s – Charles Woodson

I really wanted these cards when they came out originally. That might be why I made a few of these yesterday. They will be coming out throughout the week because I don’t want to flood the site with the same type of card. These cards really look good, and I like how my pictures look on them. It is no surprise then that I made a few of them. (more…)


1986 McDonald’s – Aaron Rodgers

This site may shift gears for a couple of days. I love to make baseball cards, and I have had no success with football cards. I tried to make two custom sets that did not look good in my eyes. With the Packers winning the Super Bowl last night I decided to just take some Packer pictures that I had and put them on older cards. I had some good results doing that. This week I will still be issuing my preview set for baseball, but I will sprinkle in a few Packer cards. (more…)
