OTR12. Aaron Sanchez - On the Rise

Another pack, another new insert. On the Rise features 25 players that made big strides in 2016. I wanted the background to look kind of stock market-y without being too hacky. The big subtle brackets pointing forward and up adds some depth without being too on-the-nose. As you’ll see in other OTR cards, the colors fade from one to the other in tandem with the team colors. A little gold foil for the “ON THE RISE” text sets it off a bit.
A few notes on these particular base cards: when the Padres regressed away from last year’s navy and gold color scheme, I had to switch out yellow for a dull gray. The Padres, man. And with so many pitcher cards, the action shots can only vary so much. The checklist is actually half pitcher/half position players so other packs should be less pitcher-centric.
