I don't know how many of you read the blog Life and Baseball Cards, but I always thought it was a pretty sweet blog. The blogger was one of those guys who was less baseball focused when it felt like every blog was crazy baseball focused, so we got alone well. Recently he moved from blogger to tumblr and as such is a little less in our world, but before he did that he finished up some customs he owed me from long ago. Here they are in all their excellence!
The first custom, which is dated from 2011, was originally meant for a collection of mine - my cup collection. It's a close up sketch of a Gatorade cup with a cooler and Gatorade bottle in the background and some foreground sunflower seeds. It's...amazing:
The second expired PC sketch is of the guy who largely got me into player collections in the first place - The Crime Dog Fred McGriff:
The last custom is definitely the best of all. Finished in 2015, and tagged 2015, it's an awesome Seneca Wallace custom Browns cards:
This whole custom really impresses me, and it's easily one of my favorite Seneca Wallace customs. I think the hands and football might stick out to me the most - check out that detail! It's very impressive.
Lonestarr really surprised me with some PC needs as well. He sent a pair of Billy Hamiltons that I needed, both slight variations from the same subset:
Then Lonestarr finished the package off with some random great name goodness and some other former PC dudes. My 2nd favorite name was Randor Bierd...he sent a base, Chrome, and X-Fractor of his that were all very cool:
Number one name though - that'd be Levale Speigner. What kind of a name is that?
As for former PC guys, Lonestarr sent a Cribbs, who I may one day collect again:
And the package finished with pure randomness. First another great name, appropriate for the blog:
And then a totally random card, which someday may end up stuck on a binder:
