Lookie!!! I made myself a baseball card...

So I've been playing around with Wii baseball off and on since I got my Wii back in April.  It's a lot of fun though not really as accurate a baseball game as I'd like.  I think the Wii has great potential for baseball games so, so I'm looking forward to getting one of the 2009 MLB games.

Well, I got to thinking... Mario at Wax Heaven has a baseball card, Dayf has one... why can't I?  With camera in hand, I started up Wii baseball, loaded myself and took a picture of my TV screen that managed to come out with not a single scan line!  Then I spent the last three hours making a 1988 Score card from scratch for myself (including the Score logo and stars, that was a pain in the ass).

Considering I have no photoshop skills and this thing was made all in MS Paint, I think I did a pretty darn good job.  Maybe tomorrow I'll make a back for it.  Then I could print one, autograph it and make a 1/1, or cut up a shirt and make some game used relic cards.  The possibilities are endless!





EDIT: I even thought far enough ahead that I took the card apart and made a template of each piece, now I can make all the parallel versions I want... for what it's worth, black bordered '88 Score cards look amazing. heh heh...

That is awesome! You're making me want to quit buying cards and buy a Wii instead though...
