Fantastic work, Chris!

Using Photoshop, I have created more Dark Angel cards using a different look. Some are not yet completed as I am going to change a couple of the images now that I know how to get a good screen capture.

I must say, this has been quite fun and becomes so much easier after you create a template and reusable layers. Here are some of the results:

I had a few Spins and Needles cards as a kid. I probably never bought more than a pack or two. I was the type of card collector that would buy a pack of anything new I saw on the candy store shelves. I really wasn't into music before my mid-teen years, so I guess the subject matter of the Spins and Needles cards didn't hold any special appeal for me.

By the time I got back into card collecting in the late 1970s, the Spins and Needles cards were more up my alley. Some of the recording artists from the set were now being played on the oldies stations that I preferred (still do). I don't recall now whether I built or bought a set, but for some years I had the complete set of Spins and Needles.

As part of my new-found interest in creating custom cards in the formats of some of my childhood favorite non-sports sets, I've added a modern take on Spin and Needles by creating this card of The Quarrymen.

You might not recognize the name, but you should recognize the faces. The Quarrymen was the group co-founded by John Lennon, who was later joined by Paul McCartney and George Harrison (and a rotating cast of musicians). They were the Beatles in the years before Pete Best and Ringo Starr.

The official web site of the current iteration of The Quarrymen -- http://www.originalquarrymen.co.uk -- will tell you everything about the group's history and provided the details necessary for me to write up the card back.

In the back of my mind I've a notion that other Spins and Needles customs could be forthcoming, such as Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins, Ricky Nelson and Roy Orbison, in keeping with the 1960 issue date of the original cards. Some would even fit into additions to the 1957 Topps Hit Stars issue. They're not high on my priority list, though.

I have gotten a ton of cards back but have been lax in sharing here. Here are a few of the cards I have gotten back recently.

I love the Muppets! Those cards are great. Just be careful that the most dangerous frog in the world doesn't get his hands on them!

Don't stop posting your new arrivals Chris, I love seeing them!

It's so cool you got Helen Mirren's signature



I'll post it here too in case people don't see my other post.

Anyone use MyTradingCards.com lately? there isn't much activity on there facebook page which makes me nervous. I just can't find anyone else that would print square corners for my 'The Princess Bride' set that I'm working on.
