More Customs of the Great 8

Hello All,

Since my guy Jay Bruce isn’t performing, and he has taken full responsibility, I’m still collecting his cards but at a much slower pace.

The Reds have pretty much called it a season, and a couple of days ago, I stepped back in time a little and made some custom cards of the Big Red Machine. You saw the major stars in the last post. Now here are the rest of the Great 8!

Let’s start of with the All-Star Shortstop Dave Concepcion. I may change this one.

All Star Outfielder George Foster


All Star Outfielder Cesar Geronimo


All Star Outfielder Ken Griffey


There you have it! Tell me what you think.
btw, finding good decent google images of these players is tough to do.


Custom Vintage Reds & More

Hello All,

Got some down time during the Labor Day weekend.
***Soapbox Time*** Just remember, Labor Day isn’t a holiday that was given to you. The AFL-CIO fought hard for this holiday and was fought tooth and nail by corporate America for years and they still are trying to repeal it! *** END OF SOAPBOX ***

Since our 2014 Reds just seems to have blown their season, I’m going to step back in time and make some custom Reds cards of players from the Big Red Machine. I usually blow by those type of designs and cards of the BRM because everyone makes them and it’s been done over and over again. So, since our current team doesnt seem to know how to win, I’ll be just like everyone else and reminisce to the days of the BRM.

I started to kinda copy an online tutorial for making vintage cards, but I didnt want to have to edit every single pic, so I made some adjustments and here are the final results:

Let’s start with the mastermind of the BRM: Sparky Anderson


And the stars of the team:





I know thats not the whole BRM but I started to get bored a little. So I tweaked the design and added Barry Larkin, Eric Davis & Chris Sabo.




And then, I went back to the orginal design and made one of ‘The Mick’.


And then one of Cal Ripken, Jr.


I’ll update again later with the rest of the BRM. Let me know if you like ’em or not!
