Hey everyone. Sorry for being so picture heavy. More or less finished 63(!) Ronald Acuña customs and wanted to share em. Happy New Year to all.

Don't care much for Acuna - he's not a Met - but that's a great presentation and an excellent way to introduce all of the vintage Topps base designs to a newbie in a "relatable" format. ("Relatable" being a polite way of saying "using a player they've heard of.")

Thanks. Also a Met fan. Feel like this kid is gonna torch them for many years to come. Just like the good ol days. Whenever I get another large chunk of free time maybe i'll go to work on a Wilmer Flores set for ya.

Those are all amazing!

I keep telling myself I need to learn more about designing customs like the amazing stuff you are doing but have yet to actually do it.

Bravo! Those are really great and I like the photo choice for each card. And the backs are cool also.
