When it’s your birthday, you can ask for baseball cards but unless you can find a fellow collector to buy you something, it might not be a good idea. You never know what they think you’ll like…and often times, you wind up wishing they’d have bought you a sweatshirt instead.
If your gift buyer is a guy named Alex Towbin, you’re OK.
With a friend approaching the milestone 40th birthday, Towbin decided to do something a little different.
He put together a special card album that tweaks his friend’s advancing in years but really leans more toward coolness.
The card companies might want to think about hiring this guy.
He sent us a tweet about his latest blog post highlighting the graphic arts skills he uses to create his own insert cards.
His latest project is Michael Jordan. Check out his “Project23” designs.
If you pull an Allen & Ginter autograph of home run machine Jose Bautista, you’ll know exactly when and where he signed it. Check out MLB.com’s story on the Blue Jay slugger, which revealed what he was doing yesterday.
Here’s a nice feature on Jim & Steve’s Baseball Card Shop, one of the longest tenured outlets in the Midwest.
