1987 Donruss – John Smoltz

Today I heard that the new card set by Topps was out. Of course I don’t actually collect cards anymore. At least not real cards. I just make fake cards using my pictures. As a child the set that really has always stuck in my mind as one that was hard to get was the 1987 Donruss set. I had a factory set of Fleer early in the year, and you could by a pack of Topps anywhere it seems like. I bought a lot of them too. Donruss though seemed to be very hard to get.

1975 Topps – John Smoltz

When I was making the Pujols card I had the template open so I decided to make another card. I had some pictures of John Smoltz set aside to make cards of so I thought I would use on of them. I really like the 1975 Topps design. (I realize that I say that a lot. I apparently like many different card designs. The ones I don’t like so much probably won’t be on this site very much.) I knew that I wanted to make a few of these, and this was a good chance to make a couple. (more…)
