Custom Gypsy Queens: Jimmy, Ryan, and Chase

It has been a while since I have posted anything but the ongoing "Photo of the Game" series. I have been busy and hope to catch up here with some new things.

Last week, for the first time this year, I bought some baseball cards. I purchased a couple of Phillies Gypsy Queen cards on eBay. I know it isn't as exciting as buying a pack, opening it up, and hoping you get something good - but it allows me to get what I want without the hassle. I like the design of these cards because Topps has applied a unique post-processing effect to the images. The look is very similar (if not exact) to the "psychedelic" effect provided by Adjust plugin by Topaz Labs.

After getting my cards in the mail, I was inspired to create a couple of my own, using pictures I took. My first three cards are the three core "home grown" players on the current Philadelphia Phillies. Let me know if you are interested in the photoshop template for these custom cards.
