Alright, I have a question that I'm interested in seeing some responses to.
I bought a phone case about a week ago. I hadn't been able to find anything that was super cheap online, and I found a website that let you make a custom design for your phone case that was basically the same as buying one with a set design ($29).
It just so happened that the day I decided to make the purchase, I had been defending the honor of one of my favorite baseball card sets of all time on Twitter: 1991 Fleer. A few people were badmouthing it, and I had to let them know how beautiful it really is.
With this fresh in my mind, I decided that I wanted my phone case to have a baseball card on it. I tried to think of what would be a good card to go with, and after sifting through my cards, I couldn't get past this card:
One of my all time favorite players from one of my all time favorite sets was just too good to pass up. Sure, I wouldn't rank it in my Top 10 Gwynn's, and I almost would've preferred having an Archi Cianfrocco card instead, but this is the one that felt the most right.
I placed my order and crossed my fingers (after paying, I discovered that the website I went to - Casetify.com - had a bunch of negative feedback), and finally it arrived:
While I got to choose the picture for it, I couldn't edit the centering of it, so I already knew that part of Tony's name would be cut off, as well as the team/position lettering at the bottom. Despite that, I still liked how it looked. Physically, I'm not sure that it's worth what I paid, but I think that the prices for all phone cases are a rip off anyways, so maybe it's just me.
So, here's the question:
If you were to get a baseball card printed on your phone case, what would it be?
After a week to think about it, I still love my choice. Sure, there are a number of other Gwynn's that are "better cards", but I think this one works really well. Maybe it's also because my phone is already a bright yellow color, so a bright yellow phone case kinda works.
I'm interested to see what you guys come up with.
