I had an idea for a 2010 custom set, and I wanted to run it by the Custom Card Blog contributors/readers. I think it would be cool to make a custom set featuring every player/manager/coach who was in a game in the 2009 season. This would be a humungous set of probably 800+ cards, but I think it would be possible to do if we could get contributors to agree to create a team set (probably 30-45 cards). You could pick your favorite team, and create a set of custom cards (front and back) featuring every player/coach/manager who was in a 2009 game, and if you wanted, make team leaders/stadium/#1 Draft Pick/broadcaster cards as well. You could use your own custom templates, or if you like, you can feel free to use mine. You can get rosters/2009 stats at www.baseball-reference.com , and do a google image search for photos if you need pictures. If we make a set of all 30 teams, and maybe have a set of highlights/team checklists/prospects/commissioner, then we would need 31-32 contributors (possibly less if a few people agree to take more than 1 team). If we decide to do this, I would be interested in doing either the Detroit Tigers or Tampa Bay Rays. I have a feeling that this could get pretty big if we keep getting hits on the blog, possibly big enough to where people want to print sets of their favorite teams or the whole set for getting autographs, or just to collect. Here are a few templates of some cards I made of the 2008 Tampa Bay Rays.

If any readers/contributors are interested in this idea/project, leave a comment with your ideas/thoughts, as well as team(s) you are interested in making a set of. Thanks for reading, and keep posting your custom cards, they all rock. <br>
