Custom 1989 Pro Set Legends
My girlfriend bought me a set of 1989 Pro Set Series 1 football cards a few weeks back. It was nice because this was the first set that really got me excited about collecting when I was 10.

I went through all of the cards and thought to myself "This set would make a great legends set."

Well, after thinking about it for a while, I decided to make my first custom cards. I took the existing 1989 Pro Set design and updated it a little. I added some drop shadows and took away that darn AFC/NFC logo from the left corner. I liked the Series 2 helmets better. I also updated the NGL logo to what we have today. I might design the backs at some point, but not today. Too time consuming.

To start off, I created cards of my favorite player, Brett Favre.

Check them out:

What do you think? I'm thinking about making cards of other legends as well.

Any suggestions?

Had a few bored moments today, so I made a new card.




Barry Sanders time.

And since it only took me a few extra minutes, here is the ever elusive "Gold" version 1/1 lol:

Well, I made 2 for you.

You might see where this is going. You're Jackson auto is on the way, but I made something to tide you over until then.


Oh, and it's a 1/1!!!!!!!! lol

It's an auto!!!!! I used the Jackson auto I'm sending you to make it. Thought it turned out decently.


And while I was playing around, I decided to make a "Classic" Barry Sanders Rookie with the updated design.

I think I am going to try to make a couple of new cards a day. We'll see how long I can keep that up lol.

Thanks for all of the nice compliments. I'm having fun.
