New Custom Cards: More of the Phillies’ design and a New 2018 Wareham Gatemen Design
May 14, 2019
I’m really happy with the success I’ve had getting the Phillies’ cards returned. I like how they look in a binder page, and it looks like we’re well on our way to a “2019 Phillies’ TTM Frankeset”. So here are four more designs towards that set. For some reason on the last batch, I put the World series and All-Star logos between the Phillies’ logo on the player name, but I like it better the way it is here on the Del Unser.
I also started a new set featuring the 2018 Cape Cod League Champion Wareham Gatemen. The Gatemen are the closest Cape league team to me (and many Cape Codders don’t even really consider Wareham a Cape town, which gives me even more reason to be a Gatemen fan). The design is a slightly tweaked version of the ’84 Topps set. The concept is an action shot of the player from the Cape league season with a headshot from their college team. So far, I have FIU’s Austin Shenton, Creighton’s Isaac Collins and UCLA’s Jeremy Ydens.
I wouldn’t mind sending these out on request, but I’m not sure what the success rate might be. Anyone ever send out TTM requests to college players?
