For several years I have been squirreling away photos of 1950s-60s (sometimes earlier) players that show them in their post-playing days as major league coaches.
I find these pictures interesting because they show the guys I collected on cards as a kid in a different role. It's like Vincent Vega said about Europe in Pulp Fiction, it's "the same shit, only a little bit different."
I have publicly thank here a fellow custom card maker, Keith Conforti, who when he saw the beta version of my card on forum, suggested I go with the horizontal "As Player/As Manager" format that was used for manager cards that years. That idea had never crossed my mind. I like it so much better than the standard '78 style.
Any of theseColavito custom cards available these days?ReplyDelete
The horizontal version was the only one actually printed. You can find current ordering information here: http://boblemke.blogspot.com/2015/08/how-to-order-my-custom-baseball-cards.htmlReplyDelete
