St. Joe Mustangs Brent Seifert 1983 Topps custom card   Leave a comment

1983 Topps Mustangs Brent SeifertI saw the picture of Brent on the Mustangs facebook page for the mugshot and paired it with my shot of him trotting around the bases after drilling a 3-run shot over the party deck last week. I am a huge fan of both Seifert and 1983 Topps cards so I really wanted to do this one.

Card Printing: 1983 Topps Royals, Major League Debut   3 comments

1983 Topps Royals printed custom cards

My sets of 1983 Topps Royals and Major League Debut custom cards printed, cut and ready to go into binders.

This is kind of a big pay-off for me making my custom cards. I don’t print many of them but I do like to print some. I decided to print my whole 1983 Topps Royals set and my major league debut cards. I was pretty happy with the result. They always seem to print a little dark but that is not a big issue. I print them on 120 lbs. card stock and cut them with a small slide cutter so my edges are always straight. It is incredibly difficult to get the cards centered if they have a white border but I get better at that with each set I cut. This picture show my set scattered on the floor. I usually print 2 sets of everything I decide to print, one to go in a Royals binder and one to keep in a separate card stack. So far I have printed I believe five sets and am looking forward to doing more.
