JUNE 1: I’m taking a break from photoshop, to try to cover more of the 90′s market on ebay again. I’m going to try to emphasize specifically on the Michael Jordan market. DISCLAIMER: I believe that the information I gather and share should not be taken as ANY kind of standard, not should it be interpreted as ABSOLUTE. I am bound to report sales that may fall through, that may come from ebay sellers that other collectors find to be corrupt For this I apologize before hand for not doing in depth analysis on EVERY SINGLE SALE. I will do my best to correct any inconsistencies, and if anyone would like to help me, I am open to this becoming some kind of wiki project. Anyone is welcome to reference the information I post as a resource, but please don’t mistake it for being the DEFINITIVE report on 90′s inserts, Michael Jordan and collecting cards. This is my BLOG and the information I gather and share is for my interests and entertainment, that I openly share with others who MIGHT find it useful, flawed or otherwise.
I’ve teamed up with Derek from Hey That’s Mine! and a few board members from Hobby Kings to bring to you a custom cards contest!
The contest will begin tomorrow, with each participant going up heads up against all the other participants. It will end Saturday midnight, PST. Nothing is at stake, this is just for fun!
For now, here’s a preview of a few of the participants (each with 3 cards) and you can vote on your favorite designs, per contestant. Enjoy!
MAY 19: 9:25 PM, CONTEST BEGINS! CONTEST RUNS UNTIL MONDAY, midnight PST.
MAY 20: NEW PARTICIPANT ADDED: Twelve, from Hobby Kings
MAY 22: NEW PARTICIPANT ADDED: Unique Collection, from Hobby Kings
MAY 22: CONTEST WILL BE EXTENDED UNTIL WEDNESDAY, MAY 25TH midnight PST, since we have two late entries. Keep voting!
PLEASE SEE ALL THE PARTICIPANTS BELOW, BEFORE YOU VOTE! :)
Note: I created a new poll to include Twelve. The previous poll had these totals, which I will add to the tallies at the end of the contest. Deeluxe had 8 votes, m1000 had 2 votes and Big D had 3 votes. If you voted on that poll, I’m pretty sure you can vote again on this one (you shouldn’t, but I can’t stop you from doing so).
