Holy cow......blogging just hasn't been in the cards lately for me.
I was all excited to show off some of my Linden cards, Oscar Gamble cards, Raise The Cup cards and more.....but the cold from hell destroyed me in November (and work).
One day after my last blog post I ended up with a fever and the oh-so-fun shakes. It drained me of all energy and it's taken pretty much the whole month to recover. This one was a doozy.
It doesn't help that work has been busier than ever - in fact, it's the busiest November I've seen in the 7 years I've worked at this company.
But I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.....or the train comin' right at me - one of the two.
I just wanted to say 'Hello' and that I will have some stuff to show off soon. Promise.
In the meantime, I'm going to share a quick concept I came up with (since I don't want to scan cards tonight.
OK.....with November being Movember month and guys growing out their moustaches, I think that one of the card companies should capitalize on it. But I think it should be done a little more uniquely than just some photos and a simple design.
Hockey cards have mildly embraced the sketch card concept that has exploded in the non-sport world. There are some great artists out there doing tremendous work.
I think there should be sketch cards of players sporting their 'stache inserted into a product like UD Series I (which came out at the start of November). I think it would create some cool "long shot" pulls and the resulting sketch cards would be (I think) pretty desirable to chase.
You could even find a way to incorporate a way to generate funds for charity.
Well......what do you think? Am I still "sick in the head" or have I finally come to my senses?
