Lightbulb Redskins Trading Cards

Someone made the suggestion that we have football cards for avatars and it gave me the idea of making some Skins cards. Yes, I "borrowed" some card designs of my childhood, but I did the rest of the work. I love the looks of the vintage trading cards. Here's a few. I may do more later if I find some spare time.

Enjoy!

I like the Fletcher card the best, but that one also took the most time with the name. I did these in Paintbrush.

Re: Redskins Trading Cards

So your cards are from around the late 80's early 90's.

A few '70s also. The cards from my childhood...back when I thought cards would be worth a fortune and they ended up being worth absolutely nothing because they printed so many.


I tried to pick photos that would look as dated as the cards instead of crystal-clear ones that would look obviously pasted on, since I was using scans of actual old cards as a base.

Thanks for the compliments.

It was fun, will probably do more someday. Feel free to save/use/do whatever you want with them.

Because of multiple copyright infringements?
