Posted By: <b>runscott</b><p>As you know, this auction was just to prove a point - I followed all of e-bays rules and used only techniques that I have complained to them about unsuccessfully. However, I've been working on computer images of "dream cards" for a while now and this exercise in actually "physicallizing" the image has been a real eye-opener. I realize now how difficult it is for the forgers to create these "reprints" - mine look very weak in comparison, but I now have ideas on how to do this right and might try to create an entire set (maybe 10 or so) with a look and feel more like a real card. The proofs from my first effort are too shiny, too thick, blurry image, etc, but my "overprinting" technique yielded some cool results. If I can create good ones, maybe I'll sneak into drugstores and slip these into Topps T206 boxes (the ghosted Alfred E. Neuman image over a Piedmont back would be popular, I'm sure). What are your "dream cards"? (always an interesting topic).

Posted By: <b>John</b><p>A Jesse Burkett T206 card,it would be the only way i can afford one of his cards,figuring he would have been a common HOF'er like Beckley,Duffy,etc.....Tommy Bond Old Judge(so he missed by 2 years,i still want one)....any card of Jack Martin,who played for yankees,miracle braves and phillies(1912-1914) just because the town im from he was a well-known person and only baseball player from that town,one of the main streets is named after him....and finally,a 1987 topps Joel Forrest,future prospects card <img src="/images/happy.gif" height=14 width=14>
