2016 Bowman Chrome Draft Picks & Prospects Special Edition Super Chromatographic Pack Rip Party Short Print #226 /5

This is my satirical take on future Bowman.  I'm not bashing the prospectors and those who love the set every year, but I'm just not into it myself.  Maybe I'm just too old.
To me, Bowman has become such a confusing product that I won't even look at someone's want lists unless they have the full numbers and player's names listed.  All the BCPs and BDPPs would be OK if the fronts looked different too, but they don't.
Anyway, enough ranting.  The fictional player above was created with cards from Evan Longoria, Justin Upton and Stephen Englund.  (July 2010)

Tribute to 1976 Topps Father & Son

Update: An observant commenter noted that the original picture of Justin was actually Scot Shields.  That's what I get for snagging pictures from another site.  Now I have four versions of this card.  With different cropping, this one could have looked like Justin was climbing out of the frame the way his leg is kicked up.

Another relatively simple cut & paste job.  I'm sure I'll get comments for not using the five word Angels team name, but screw that.
I've been contemplating a couple original insert sets, but haven't found all the graphical elements yet.  Stay Tuned.  (July 2010)

Tribute to 1974 Topps - Priest Holmes

A classic but simple design.  Was able to patch the lettering together.  It makes things much easier if you use perfectly straight pictures to customize.  (July 2010)
