2012 Topps Dick Allen - White Sox

Inspired by the great work by Uncle John's Band on his Cards That Never Were blog showcasing his created Mickey Mantle card collection -- I am going to attempt a similar project with my guy.

The difficult part of this plan will be the process of creating a Topps baseball card template in photoshop for each year, starting with 2012 cards. The 2012 Topps Series 1 has not been released yet, but I designed this based on the image they have released of Ryan Braun. The upside to this daunting project is once the card templates are done, they can be shared and reused for multiple projects. Let me know if you want me to share a specific template.

Awesome. Perfect right down to the early '70s Sox logo.

Wow, this is really great. Would you really be willing to share your template? I have a 9 year old son who is obsessed with baseball/baseball cards and I would love to make a realistic baseball card with his picture on it. I tried last year and my template came out ok, but not nearly as good as yours. I will check back to see if it is posted, or you could email me at stratman923atearthlinkdotnet.

Great work, if you wouldn't mind sharing the template I would love a copy to play around with. jwisenberg at comcast dot net
