Dwight Siebler

Dwight Siebler was a pitcher for the Minnesota Twins in the early 1960s. He was originally signed by the Phillies but never pitched for them. Dwight signed these cards in blue ballpoint pen and added Bible verses to several. The Denver Bears card was originally
B&W but was colorized using Photoshop.

Custom 1959 Topps Jake Striker for SCN Member

Did a custom 1959 Topps Jake Striker for SCN member Gmrose91. He emailed me the B&W photo to be used and a sample of Jake's autograph. I used Photoshop to make this:

and then lay a 1959 Topps template over the photo and added the autograph

and you end up with this.

Ken Singleton

I wasn't sure I would be getting this one back as I had sent it in February to his Maryland address just as he was in Florida broadcasting the Yankees spring training games. Signature looks good but I wonder.......

Al McBean

After no returns Monday and Tuesday, I got back Al McBean today. He didn't sign the 1969 Padres custom but signed the other two. I'll probably send it out to Roy Face for his sig.
