merging my pictures and cards

1989 Pro Set – Nick Collins

Here is yet another card from last year that never made it to the blog. I made so many cards that I just didn’t have time to post them all. Now that I have not made a card in so long I thought that at least I could release some older cards so that they could finally be seen. (more…)


1984 Topps – Curtis Painter

I know that Curtis already has a ’84 Topps card, but that was in a Colts uniform. I found this picture of him while making cards for Saturdays game so I thought that I would hold it for today when the former Boiler quarterback makes his first NFL start. (more…)


1989 Pro Set – Clay Matthews

Clay is a player that I did not know too much about when he was drafted by the Packers. He was not the big splash that you like to see teams make with their early draft picks. At least so I thought. He has become a force in the league that helped propel the team to the Super Bowl win last season. (more…)


1989 Pro Set – Ryan Kerrigan

I have made a couple of cards in honor of Ryan Kerrigan getting drafted. He was Purdue’s highest pick since 1987 so I thought that merited a few cards. This last one is modeled after the ’89 Pro Set draft cards. A lot of good names were in the original set so the cards are ingrained in my head. When I thought about doing this I knew that I had to make one. I just took my template from the Packer cards I have been making, and altered it a bit. I took the #1 pick section from a Troy Aikman card. This was a rush job so I left the Pro Set name on the card there. (more…)


1990 Pro Set Draft Pick – Ryan Kerrigan

Since Ryan was the highest draft pick since Rod Woodson in 1987 I thought that I would make a few cards of him. This one is a tribute to the ’90 Pro Set card. Unlike most of the football cards I have done so far I made this one from scratch. The design was so simple that it was probably easier than altering an actual card. I changed it up a little to reflect the fact that Ryan was a draft pick this year as well. Overall I think the card did not turn out too bad. (more…)
