With so few Seneca Wallace cards in the world, I finally decided to pay for some customs to be done. I've received free customs and I've traded for customs but I had never paid for them before, so this was kind of a cool new thing for me, and I'm pretty glad I did it!
I talked to these two guys on Blowout, one who designs and one who makes the physical cards for you. Not as complicated as it sounds, and the only thing I had to really do was say what I wanted and send some jersey pieces for a jersey card I wanted. When it was all said and done I ended up with two cards and I think they both look GREAT!
The first was based on one of my favorite baseball sets of all time, 1995 Leaf:
I know what you're thinking...why baseball for a football card, especially a set with a baseball diamond embedded in the design? Well, I'm weird, and I thought it would look cool. I'd argue it does:
Things I LOVE: The little baseball field head with Browns helmet, especially since it's refractor-y like the original, the bottom right name lettering as the script looks pretty damn close even though it's hard to duplicate a random Fleer script from 18 years ago.
The back is nice too:
The other card will make a lot more sense, as it's a football card originally, though it still emulates an old design:
So what did I do with a quad jersey card? Well I put four Seneca Wallaces on it of course, a career retrospective of course:
Obviously this is now one of my favorite cards in my collection, if not my favorite card. I just love the set, and I think it's a real neat way to combine Seneca's career aside from his Seahawks stop (which already got tons of hobby love) and his Browns one (since the other card I got was Browns). Truly a beautiful card, and I hope you guys will agree!
