    A Very Mouschi Contest

    [EMAIL CHIME]
    Hello Tanner, I ran across this Jose Canseco card, and was wondering if you would be interested....

    [EMAIL CHIME]
    Hey, Tanner! A friend of mine just pulled this Canseco! You can email him at...

    [EMAIL CHIME]
    So, you are the crazy moustache guy that makes customs and loves Canseco, right? If so, I saw this Canseco get opened in a break....

    ----------------

    I get messages like these every day. The only way it could possibly be any better is if more of you did it! I want to SINCERELY thank everyone who has ever even tried to put me in contact with someone who may have a card I want for my collection.

    SOOOO....I want to start up a contest as a thank you to all those who have helped me.

    I'm putting this in the baseball forum, because this is really my "home" in this forum. I am all about baseball, and 95% of my work is baseball related.

    Beginning tonight, and ending 9/16/16 at 9:21pm CST.

    Respond to this thread with
    - A character (you, family member, baseball player, actor, etc.) you would like a custom of, and why.
    - Something about you that very few people know.
    - Someone you would nominate to be picked, and why

    I am not sure if I'm going to pick one person, or five people. Heck, I'm not sure if I'm going to pick the person who is nominated, or the person who nominates!

    The winner(s) will receive a custom card made by yours truly.

    Annndddd.....GO!

    This contest has been posted on a few of my favorite places on the web, but I'll post the winners (without mentioning the forum names unless they are from here) on this thread.

    THE CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED.

    Thank you everyone for participating! I'll post the cards I make right here as I go...

    First is stone193 who wanted a 1963 Fleer Mickey Mantle, because one doesn't exist:


    ----------------

    George_Calfas is the next winner!



    ------------------

    Glen87 is the next winner!

    Here is me having a laughing fit over getting cat fur in the mail. around the 1:30 mark.



    Here is the finished product! Dual Relic Famous Feline Collection with Foil!



    ---------------

    Today is 40-40 Day, and Topps did not give me my wish of making a Topps NOW Throwback card for Canseco, so I made my own. Looks like I'm the next winner of this contest!



    ---------------

    In this Sunday-Special edition of The Mouschi Contest: Winners, we have a digital-only exclusive. The winner: TKRAFT24.

    He had initially requested an eyebrow / moustache swap of this fellow:



    This is for you, Tkraft24 - enjoy!



    Hope everyone had a great weekend! Here is a summary of the highlight of my weekend, as expressed in a Topps NOW card:



    Anyhoo...RandyB is the next winner! He wanted a card done of his step-father. So, here you go Randy! It is a mini style card in a frame. I hope you and he enjoy it.



    --------------

    The next winner is Phillies_Joe. He was nominated by several folks, and had me do a custom of his family. In addition to that, he sent me an autographed baseball of Aaron Nola and some money to do a booklet. Here is the final result!



    I liked it so much, I made something similar out of a game used baseball I had for my own collection:



    -----------------------

    This isn't a part of the contest, but while I'm waiting for the last 2 people to send me material, I thought I'd post my latest project: 2007 Barry Bonds Home Run History Extension Set: 757-762

    I did these, but the write up is somewhere near the end of this thread!









    ------------------

    Congratulations to everyone who has survived this week and made it to the weekend! The next to last contest winner is now wrapped up, so we have one more to go, though I'm not sure when that will be.

    Before I do the reveal, I figured I'd show off a fun project that was very challenging to get the look right ... T206 style. Dboneesq is putting together the T206 New York set. Yes, a Bronx Bombers collector before they were the Yankees. They were actually the Highlanders. The twist? He is a Mantle fan. The problem? The Mick was born about 20 years too late.

    This project was challenging because I had to get Mantle's head on an existing Highlanders body ... in addition to putting a fitting hat. Here they are: The red and blue back variations!



    Now, for the next to last contest winner reveal: A_Pharis! He both entered and was nominated.

    He sent me over this:


    So I did this:


    and made the back look like this:


    Then the front like this: (ooooOOoooohhh purty blue foil!!!!)


    It will be out to you soon, brother. I hope you like it!
    ------------

    The contest is officially over! The final card has been made.

    Kenny Lofton - My PC guy. He signed baseballs for myself and my 2 brothers back in 1994 at the then new Jacobs field. One of my all time favorite days at a ball park, been a fan ever since.

    My other hobby is woodworking.

    psj - He sent me a nice low #'d Lofton when he first joined the board for free.

    Victor Cruz - PC guy/Logan - my son/Mets - PC team - so hard to decide, lol

    I'm pretty open, what don't people know about me? Umm...Im an Eagle Scout?

    And I'd nominate [MENTION=11924]AnthonyCorona[/MENTION], cuz I'm pretty sure he nominated me for another amazing thing on here in the past which was amazing and I've written about before, plus his work with the large collection he acquired recently, and he's always positive here and represents the forum well! There's a lot of other very worthy people here too, but it said just nominate one...

    * Rick Monday, because he saved the American flag from being burned by two protesters on April 25, 1976. Side note: it was pretty hard not giving "Brett Butler" as a knee-jerk response!
    * I have been a volunteer youth leader for junior high and high school students for the past 17 years or so
    * [MENTION=2289]Zan[/MENTION], because I admire both his Hank Greenberg collection and the joy he gets from it.

    I appreciate that but all my positive posts are sarcastic ��
    Please note: Card collecting is my hobby, not my life. I don't take it that serious and like to keep it fun.

    I would love a custom of my 6 yo daughter (with me). Right now, she is still daddy's girl. She sits with me and watches games. She looks at my cards. She is my everything. But, she will grow up and these days will only be fond memories. I would love to have a card to remember her the way she is right now (just don't tell my two teen age sons).

    Something very few people know about me...this is a hard one as I don't keep many secrets. My real world friends don't know much about my card hobby, and vice versa. Few people have crossed over for me. I think the only person on here who has is Moxacaine.

    I would nominate AmishDave and Metallicalex. They both helped me on here when I was new and increased my knowledge of the hobby (although I doubt they know it). Given the chance I would enjoy treating them to a beer or four. Throw Mox and TonsofCommons in there and we could have a party. Of course, then I would add Andrew for his break, Gilmo for birthing the place, and and and....

    David Justice - my PC guy, and I've been dreaming of a Mouschi custom for a long time!

    I've written two novels and am working on my first baseball biography.

    @U_L_Washington_Rookie because he was a very prompt and generous forum member.

    This is very specific, but I'd love a mouschi custom of a Don Zimmer card with an embedded tantalum medical screw in a window box. I'd supply the screw. It would be of the type that Zimmer had 4 of implanted in his skull after being beaned in 1953. Yes, I'm weird.

    - Something about you that very few people know.
    My grandma inspired my collecting fever. She gave me her stamp collection when I showed an interest in it, and we collected a few years together. My dad found this ironic since she was the same woman who threw out his Mickey Mantle card collection when he went into the army in 1966!

    - Someone you would nominate to be picked, and why.
    George_Calfas - he's a good guy, and I think it would be awesome if he'd give you a shard of pottery or another small artifact from his archaeological field work to make into a custom card. I think that could turn into something very special and meaningful to him.

    - A character (you, family member, baseball player, actor, etc.) you would like a custom of, and why: Felix Hernandez. My PC hometown hero and my collection is finally worthy of a Mouschi Gem
    - Something about you that very few people know: I can solve a Rubik's cube under 2.5 minutes every time (definitely not fast compared to the peeps that take that thing seriously).
    - Someone you would nominate to be picked, and why: [MENTION=2418]George_Calfas[/MENTION] - He is a stand up guy, a great friend, and has some need memorabilia pieces that would look great in a custom even though he wouldn't dare take a knife/ax/pair of scissors to.

    Great entries guys! One thing: if you have been nominated, it would be helpful to post up an entry yourself if for anything to show you have interest in a custom. I definitely don't want to pick someone who isn't interested to begin with!

    -I'd pick Hoyt Wilhelm. I've always enjoyed watching that deadly knuckler throw, and he's my #1 non-Louisiana guy. Plus, I have some jumbo relics just dying to be cut up.

    -Something few people know? Hmmm. I'm a bottom to top IT guy. My brother and I run a managed services company, but I secretly wish I were [MENTION=2418]George_Calfas[/MENTION]

    -I nominate [MENTION=2413]MojoDan[/MENTION]. He's one of the most generous and caring guys that I know, and he really deserves some good going back at him.
