That multi signed Cardinals piece is amazing. Love that you can read these signatures from these old timers.
Thanks Robert, very nice of you to say! I took the photo at Busch Stadium at a game with my wife in 2011, and have on and off sent it around to various players for several years now. I also love how readable the old timers signatures are, and have in fact sort of concentrated on those guys, since I like the way it has come out with them on it! I just sort of had the "Through the Years" theme, with players from various decades!

Appreciate the compliment! It is at Scott Terry's now to be signed and hopefully coming back soon!

Blessings,

Kevin

I just finished this custom cut 4x6 for my son's 7th Birthday next month! I think he will enjoy, he loves Star Wars, and is a self-proclaimed "Mega Fan!"

I rounded out the month with two more of Brooklyn's Best:

Joe Black was the ace of the 1952 World Series...

So, just finished a long term project, and ended up with some fun designs. They are all going in the mail today, and I am excited to see what sort of returns I get! I love the 1987 Topps set, and I remember my Grandmother picking these cards up for me at the card shop next to my great aunt and uncle's beauty parlor in LaGrange in the 80s (Mr. Van's, for anyone who is from that area!!). Over the years, I lost the cards she got me, but I have since picked these up again, thanks to the kindness of a friend on here!

I decided to make the "missing cards" of my favorite Super Bowl Bears in the 1987 Topps style. Now, some of these guys were gone by 1987, but I love the design, so decided to create these. Am also excited to receive back signed, as many members of the team are reliable and gracious signers.

Here are the cards:

I will post the signed cards as soon as they start rolling back in!!
