As I’ve done every April since 2012 (yikes!), I would like to unveil my 2017 TSR custom baseball card set by opening a virtual pack!
Emphasis on “would like to”… while I would like to, I’m unfortunately not able to… not this week, anyway. I’m already a week past my Opening Day target date, and all I have ready is a vertical base card design which is set up for 8 teams.
Under better circumstances (i.e. had I not waffled between two potential designs for all of February and part of March) I would’ve presented a virtual pack for us to go through…. but that would require a design for a wrapper. I’d also include at least one or two inserts, possibly a horizontal card… all of which exist only in my head.
What I do have is a handful of customs I created as a “dress rehearsal” to make sure that the design works for different color combinations I had in mind, that it worked for player and team names of varying lengths (i.e. CUBS, DIAMONDBACKS).
I don’t have anything else to post today… so I’ll call these “promo cards” and work towards having a more fulfilling experience next week.
I’m always willing to suck up to my readership, so if there’s a particular player or team you’d like to see on a TSR card, leave a comment and I will do my best to get something in the first official pack.
Since I call these promo cards, I feel like they should be accompanied by some sort of sales pitch, so…
