Default Roger Clemens Sweet Spot Auto help

I cut this Clemens auto out of the sweet spot on a baseball. I made these gold and silver shiny cards and can't decide what one to permanently put the auto into.

I am not sure how to make this a poll so if you like one better than the other please let me know what one and why.

The only difference seems to be the gold or silver superfractor treatment, right?

I would say neither. I think it's too busy with all four pictures, two different refractor materials, etc. My eye is drawn away from the autograph. Less is more in this instance. Pick a nice larger picture, and showcase the cut rather than detracting from it.

I prefer the silver as it just blends intp the ball better to me.

I agree with John. I would pick a nice picture of Clemens. The four smaller pictures are just too small.

Thanks guys for the input. I think I will go with the silver version. Most people I have shared the picture with like it better. I wanted to make a rough version of each just to make sure what one I liked better.

I appreciate the input on the design but I like this very much. I wanted to get a picture of him in each uniform he played in. Now if I had 4 Clemens sweet spot autos I would have made one for each team. I agree and think they would look amazing.

Later today I will try to scan them and update the pic from my crappy cell phone one. They look much better in hand.

Maybe something like this? Those are really tiny pics. Make it bigger? Like Topps super sized?
