A custom auto patch & a different kind of book card

If you are a fan of television like me, you may watch the singing or talent shows, like America's Got Talent.  I don't care how many years it has been on, and how annoying the host / judges are.  There is just something about robotic dancers and people that juggle poodles that sing to me. But then, they have more "cultured" entertainers. Like opera singers.  Or men dressed up as women.  Or men opera singers dressed up as women. I confess, I don't really get that.  I watch in awe and the camera pans from the entertainer during the performance

Long Overdue Flip Quest Update

So, I have been MEGA busy - primarily with creating some customs for my personal collection to get ready for a signing coming up. I have not had much time at all to devote to doing anything with the flip quest! Another thing that has been a massive problem, is I've been having major issues with gmail. Everytime someone inquires about something ... I don't know if they get my response or not! Because of this, there hasn't been much movement, but here goes: I sold some books, games, bins and Paula Deen autographed menu for $50. I bought a

How to turn $20 in cards into a priceless 1 of 1

A few weeks back, my wife and I were watching some television, and we heard a knock on the door.  If you want to scare my wife, that is the way to do it.  Her mind quickly gravitates to home invasions ... especially since we have a NO SOLICITING sign on the front door (too many issues w/Kirby sales people). She told ... errrr ... asked me to look out the blinds instead of open the door, to which I obliged.  There stood a man in the dark, who was asking for me by name - first and last.  He

My Crusade Throughout the Week of Customs, TTM, Chic Fil A and more!

This past week has been busy.  Not work busy, but life busy.  It has been good!  We have discovered the wonderfulness of a kids bowl free program during the summers, so the wife and I bought shoes for ourselves and now we are able to bowl 2 games a day for free basically.  Can't beat that! I'll get to the custom work in a bit, but before I do, there are some things I'd like to document here on my blog (or wherever you are reading this from) so I can look back on it.  After I got my tail

Flip Quest Update

Just a quick update!  We didn't do any garage saling this past weekend, because I did a little of this ... Imagine this - At Sea World:  A row of snot nosed brats from ages 3 to 10 lined up, waiting to be embraced by a stranger dressed up in a shamu outfit.  Then imagine me hurling aside all of these children and doing this ... #WINNING Note the mustache shirt and semi-stache on my lip.  Yes folks, I'm going for it ... I'm growing a Rollie Fingers style mustache ... wish me luck!  Not even sure if it is

Custom cards for a father

Greetings from on the road, fellow cardboard addicts! As I type this, I'm in a hotel about 200+ miles away from home, and ready to ride shamu.  I just had to post some fun things here while my family is still in bed.   I was recently contacted by someone who wanted to do some baseball cards of himself for his kids, but with a twist.  He played baseball in high school and college (great stats too - batted over 300 and swiped plenty of bags!).  I suggested we do something similar to a Five Star theme.  He loved the

Custom Canseco Patch Card Created

I have been chomping at the bit to start producing some more Canseco PC items for my collection, and I have finally had some time to sit down and work on some of them!  For now, I will just be showing off one, as it is the only one I have finished right now. You may or may not recall, but a few months ago, AJ, the owner of the Canseco PERFECTION COLLECTION (dramatic echoing ... then pause for respect...and...done) sent over a nice little care package for me of game used and autographed Canseco items.
