36 Greatest Royals of All-Time   5 comments

This is a project that started with me simply wanting to make some cards of Royals of the past. I found a cool Larry Gura picture and wanted to use on something then this project was born. It is an original card design that was made even before my Just Fair design.

I was really going for a kind of cheap and cheesy look with these cards. I was thinking I wanted something like you would get as a free stadium give-away or more accurately those card of Royals that I believe police would give out. I think they may have been associated with the D.A.R.E. program or something. They were a little taller than the average card and had a message on back with a little cartoon, stuff like “Don’t take candy from strangers.”

Why 36? Well that is two complete 9-card pocket pages for a binder front and back. I don’t print backs for my cards so putting them back to back is a way to eliminate this problem. I was able to work most of the players I wanted into this set with 36 opportunities as well.

Here is a sample from the set, the first post, Paul Splittorff:
