Custom A & G cards have arrived

15 04 2008

I just got back the batch of custom cards made by JBel4331. Unfortunately, out of the 10 requests made by readers of Wax Heaven, only 6 photographs were suitable to be used for the set. Next time custom card orders are taken I will ensure there is enough time to make sure everyone’s request is completed. The cards that didn’t make the cut were a Gene Hackman, Andre Dawson, Frank Thomas, and custom photo of “Jbob” Hartigan. I truly apologize from the bottom of my heart for those left out. If it makes you feel any better, I didn’t even make a request for my favorite Jose Canseco or Andrew Miller photo.

There is a huge deal being worked out for a custom set of professional-looking cards made from the characters of Major League. I am looking at a 7-issue set from the 1989 original and a 7-issue set from the 1994 sequel. In a few hours there is going to be a poll started for what characters to include and sets the cards should be modeled after. I don’t care if you are a lurker, we will need all readers out of the shadows for this one time only event. These cards are going to be printed out when completed and will either be raffled off at $1 a ticket or sold off for donations of $5 per set. The only reason it’s going to cost money is because I will have to purchase the card maker’s favorite player’s autograph from eBay to keep him happy.

As far as the custom Allen & Ginters, I hope you enjoy!

Awesome suggestions, Mike. That poll is coming soon.
