Stickers: An Album Cover(ed)

So I've been dragging my feet on the whole stickered album thing.  Finally decided to finish off my first album tonight this week, and I think it looks pretty good!
First I grabbed a few Red Sox aces from a few years back:
The Wakefield is especially cool since it's so shiny, but I like the classic feel of the Cracker Jack cards as well.

Then I HAD to add one of my Perlorian Cat stickers.  They're so weird...some guy dressed up cats and then posed them and they became a whole sticker set in 1983.  Bizarre:
I also had a few weird gaps on the I decided to use some of the leftover Bazooka NFLers to fill them.

And wa-la!
I need to get some tape or something to stick a few of these down - there are a handful I pulled off and on too much, ruining the stickiness.  Bu overall I think it's awesome.  Just under Wakefield in the middle right I put DeAngelo Hall first with Dunta Robinson then covering like 70% of Hall.  It makes me chuckle, so I think it was a good addition.

The only weird part is all the white space around Gary Sheffield in the bottom right.  I don't think I'm going to do anything about it, but I will make sure my next album (or the back cover of this one if I go that route) is either all squares and rectangles or all free players with white space behind them.  You can never be too OCD with these things, right?

  1. You just need to find a few of the small circular team stickers to place in the white space.

    That Wakefield is awesome!
