Spring Break

Wow, almost two weeks have passed since my last post. I wish I could say it's because I've been working on some super-special, top-secret project.... but I don't know how super-special laziness is. It certainly isn't top-secret either.

And while next week will be equally quiet here at Design On Deck, it won't be due to laziness. I'm headed to California for my belated honeymoon! My wife and I got married last May but we're just now finally able to take the time off work for a trip. So this time next week, I'll probably be standing in line somewhere in the middle of Disneyland.

Spirit Deluxe Relic Autos

Expanding on the Deluxe Autos from a few posts back, here is another auto set but with the introduction of a relic swatch. These have a lot of the same elements from the other Deluxe cards. The team color texture fading into the photograph, silver foil, same typefaces. The vertical jersey swatch along the left side is the distinguishing factor of the set. Admittedly, it would be cool of the jersey swatch matched the team color texture but I think the white stands out in a good way. Of course pinstripes with the appropriate teams would be nice to see as well.

On the back, we have a more casual player photo along with the team colors and logos. Curious to see if anybody notices anything special/different about the Posey photo on the back, though it may be hard to see with the white text box over it. The basic composition is similar to front but with those few changes to keep them distinguishable. Each card is serial-numbered to 199.
