  1. Sure, I'd be happy to take requests. What do you want to see?
  2. Over the last couple of months, I have been teaching myself the photoshop techniques required to build interesting baseball uniform templates. I shared my early development process here, and received some great feedback inspiring me to keep working to improve. I’ve now created several different uniform templates and yesterday decided to make them available for download. I’d love to get more feedback and see some concepts using one or more of these templates. Thanks in advance. 1) DAHOF Hat template: I created this simple hat template last year using a 1962 Chicago Cubs program as a guide. Very easy to use. DOWNLOAD HERE 2) DAHOF running player template: You may have seen this before. It is the first "action" uniform template I attempted.DOWNLOAD HERE 3) DAHOF defensive player template: This template is based on a picture I shot this summer of Royals prospect Mike Moustakas. DOWNLOAD HERE 4) DAHOF batting player template: I looked through hundreds of batter pictures before I selected an image I took of of Josh Hamilton. DOWNLOAD HERE 5) DAHOF standing player template: I just completed this more traditional baseball uniform template over the weekend. DOWNLOAD HERE 6) DAHOF turn-two template: I've showed off this template a couple of times. It too is based on a 1979 Chicago Cubs scorecard. The design style is much more simplistic than the action templates above. DOWNLOAD HERE
  3. Sorry for the delayed response. Real life has prevented me checking this forum recently. Here is what the updated template looks like. I changed the throwing arm length and angle. Does this work? I used the new A's gold jersey white/green piping versus the 1970's all gold uniform with gold/green piping.
  4. Today I finished another baseball action template using a more abstract style. The original concept comes from a 1979 Cubs Scorecard. I lifted the throwing arm and dropped the glove position to give a clear view of the uniform front. Let me know if you are interested in the PSD file for this template.
  5. Send me a PM, and I will give you a URL to grab the templates.
  6. Thanks. That is excellent feedback. If you stare at something too long, you miss things. I clearly see what you are talking about. I will see if the modification works and share it back. Here is a close up of the face/jawline modification suggested by Lafarge. Definitely an improvement. THANKS! and the full template with the face change in a 1972 Chicago White Sox HOME uniform.

  8. Sure, I can take requests - OR I am happy to share the PSD file so you can make your own.
  9. NAWWD Nice job! I love some of your designs. It looks like you modified almost every team, that takes guts. Favorites: 1) The combo of the Mariners compass & trident are very good. And 2) the twist on the old Phillies "P" is very cool.
  10. In May, I started this thread documenting my first attempt at creating a new photoshop based action baseball template. I got a lot of good feedback. After letting it sit for a month or so, I started re-working my original design with the hopes to improve it. The original concept is still the same: I am not 100% happy with my initial attempt at pinstripes, but I feel like I am getting closer to the intended vision with this iteration of the template. At this point I wanted to throw it back out and get some more feedback. Since you have last seen this template, I have reworked the edges on almost every layer to make the entire template more sharp and crisp. I also improved or added options for a vest, long pants, pinstripes, 70's style beltless/pullover design, lots of different piping options, the helmet has a front panel color and colored visor options. Everything can be modified by the correct layering and utilizing the color overlay and/or opacity/fill settings. A couple of examples to show the versatility of the template... Pullover v-neck jersey with long beltless pants and shoulder stripes: Vest, short pants, colored front panel helmet, and no sanitary socks: An Astros "tequila sunrise" just for fun (yes, you can change the colors to your own rainbow desires): And finally, I pulled it all together for a remake of one of my favorite baseball movies: Any feedback is appreciated and will be considered.
  11. Great topic. Here is my take in the order of the current standings. Some hats I just left alone: Yankees, Cubs, and Dodgers. Others I really prefer the "throwback" look: Red Sox, Orioles, White Sox, Phillies, Reds, Astros, and Padres. The rest I just played round with until I got something that I liked.

    Baseball cards

    You are correct. It is a photoshop plug-in product from Topaz Labs called Adjust, the specific effect is called psychedelic. It is almost exactly what you see in the GQ cards and very close to look used in the EA sports game covers.

    Baseball cards

    Thanks, I got to shoot a game at Comerica Park a couple of years ago and have some workable Brandon Inge images. I am working on a card for him now, I will post it when I get it done.

    Baseball cards

    Searching this forum, I have found a couple of older custom baseball card topics, so please accept my apologies if starting a new topic is wrong. As a kid, I was an avid baseball card collector. I still have most of my collection, despite my mothers best efforts to ruin them I have not collected seriously in the last decade or so -- mostly because the market is very confusing and complex. I just don't know where/who to start with. This season, I noticed that Topps released a retro style card set based on the 1887 GYPSY QUEEN tobacco cards. I love the simple design of these cards, including the unique post-processing effect to the images. The look is very similar (if not exact) to the "psychedelic" effect provided by Adjust plugin by Topaz Labs. Recently I have taken to pulling out some of my own photos and dropping them into my own Gypsy Queen template. I thought I would share here in an effort to get some feedback.
  15. The M-Den is not "Michigan's official website". The M-Den is an Ann Arbor based business that sells Michigan gear. If this is what they will actually wear... JJScott got is pretty darn close. The M-Den is the official apparel partner of the M athletic department. If it's on there, it's legit. Yes, I agree. If it is on the M-Den site, it is likely legit. I am not so sure Dave Brandon wanted them to "leak" the design before the athletic department had a chance to do a marketing press release. You are probably right about that. I just thought it was worth pointing out since the version that showed up on the M-Den's site was very similar to the mock-ups above. Dave Branding laughed at the notion that the initial leaked photos were similar to what we are going to wear vs. ND. I think it's extremely likely that he was lying and that we are going to wear something similar to what showed up today on M-Den. I think after the last couple weeks in the Columbus, we can all agree: there is no such thing as keeping things secret in college football.

  18. [sarcasm] Maybe you could work in a long-sleeved undershirt filled with printed tattoos to make the look more realistic? [/sarcasm]
  19. Love the addition of the front numbers on the home & away. Classic Big Red Machine.
  20. I've never been a fan of white crowned baseball hats (they look like the ice cream man) ... but, I will admit with the Sox black jersey tops, this would look pretty bad-ass.
  21. Agree with DrDougfresh on the last one. The pin stripes are too close together. Love the solid red hat and double red stripes on the sleeves & pants of the first two. Reminds me of the duds worns by the Big Red Machine. One suggestion, maybe put numbers on the front to complete the "new" retro look.
  22. Wow, now that is funny. I had not seen that original thread. I guess people can now produce their own.
  23. In March (via uniwatch) I saw this 1962 Cubs program posted on The Fleer Sticker Project blog. At the time, I thought this simple concept looked great, but had too many things going on to do anything with it. Then recently, I noticed that knnhrvy16 has made a very cool signature image using this template, and I was inspired enough to sit down and make a template. The PSD file allows you to completely control the colors of the crown, bill, and button via different layers. You can also change the skin color and tone to match your needs. Here are a couple of quick examples: If anyone is interested, here is a link to a ZIP file of the PSD template. Your feedback and ideas are welcome and appreciated.
  24. I have incorporated the corrections and posted the entire set of USFL helmets HERE . Thanks to everyone for providing feedback and suggestions. Special thanks to Mac the Knife for sharing his great USFL vectors!
