Default April Pickups

In March, I welcomed my first child into this world. When I got home from the hospital with my adorable little boy, I was greeted by a package from Brian Powell with the gift of four of his incredible custom cards. These aren't exactly "vintage", but they are well at home in my safe among my other Mantles.



Please pardon the picture quality, but I did not want to take/share anything that others could then re-use. Thanks Brian!

Chris, you are most welcome, my friend. I am just so happy for you and your wife, and glad to hear everyone's A-OK!. I am so pleased your fantasy 1954 Wilson Franks cards arrived at your home the day you brought your wife and son home!

Just being picky, but is that spot on Jack's forehead in the pinkish-lavender background version just a dust fleck, or did I somehow miss that? Please let me know because I want you to have a "good" one.

Thanks for the compliment, Zach, I worked long and hard with two computer graphic artists on those cards! I am very pleased with how they turned out. Funny, sort of, but I designed them with the precise same borders as the original Wilsons. During the cutting process, the sheets "traveled" just a tsch, but it was a tsch too much, creating the same off-center problem as on the original 1954 Wilson Franks. I had specially-chosen semi-gloss card stock, to replicate the original sheen. When the printing was done, there were no more sheets to do any more to try to get more centered cards!!!!

UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (I shan't translate, because Leon Luckey would heartily disapprove of my language, which I try not to use those words anyway, but oh was I irritated.)

----Brian Powell

While not earth shattering, these are some solid ex-exmt pick ups and mark some decent progress for my '65 Topps set. I have focus issues, and this set has been on the backburner for a while. For the last month or so, however, I have been starting to think I might actually finish eventually. It will be pretty nice when I am finished. I am also sharing these because they are from Greg Morris Cards, and there was at least one thread asking about his auctions. No problems here.
