Hello Tanner, I ran across this Jose Canseco card, and was wondering if you would be interested....
Hey, Tanner! A friend of mine just pulled this Canseco! You can email him at...
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.
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.
