I won't be long today as storms are expected all night. As my sister told me "that's what happens when the Royals win a game", I couldn't help but laugh.
I was thinking about the Topps highlights sets and then found pictures from last nights game, so I decided to make my own versions of some cards. I hope you enjoy.
We begin with the Royals mascot, Sluggerrr! He was in the tunnel during the National Anthem, and someone snapped a photo. I have to be honest, I wish people wouldn't take pictures during the Anthem, but I'll allow it this time (like I make the decisions, lol).
Next we will go with the new phenom in Kansas City- Brandon Finnegan. It might be a bit premature, but I have already labeled him the next Bret Saberhagen. Finnegan was pitching in the College World Series in June! I like the front, but I made too much of a border. I did it because I made the picture too small. As I work on GIMP and Paint a little more, I hope to get better at making these.
The back is ok, I might have put too much wording on it, but I'm fine with it. The Winstead's logo is to create a local feel like the old promo cards from various restaurants. They are a restaurant based in Kansas City. If I made more backs, I would have put it on all the backs.
That's all I did as the storms were coming, but I did make some other cards earlier this year that I might as well show off.
|Unfinished Salvador Perez card|
|Possibly the worst card I've made.|
|Made about a month into the season, obviously before he was traded.|
|Another card I might print out, I've always like El Hombre!|
I even made a card back for me. I never finished it, but I liked how it turned out. I never made a front because I never found a photo I liked.
Anyways, thanks for reading, its about to storm again, but I promise I have better posts coming. Tomorrow I might not have one because game one of the ALDS, but if I do, I might make a short one. Have a great night.
