Default What I WISH 2011 SPA Football Looked Like

I wrote an article about this earlier today, but I know not everybody visits the site so I thought I'd share my designs on here. Hope you like them! Feel free to check out the article for my thought process on this and what I think about the history of SP Authentic.

<strong>UPDATE: I was asked to make a Christian Ponder and I was also asked to make an NFL shield 1/1...I decided to kill two birds with one stone.</strong>

If companies would hire people with half the talent as you.. Cards would be way nicer!

Both attempts are much better than UD, and that is saying something... usually UD is the company that is on top of the design game.

Very nice, but they cant use NFL pictures or pro team colors in their backgrounds. So that handicaps them a little. But this years designs is just plain fugly. It looks like SPx and Sp Authentic had a love child.

Believe it or not I think that was their goal, as ridiculous as that seems. Theyre lumping all the "SP" products together this year.

when are they getting their license back? i haaaaaaaaate ncaa designs.
i look forward to 3 breaks every year......limited, contenders, spa.


i cant even bring myself to buy singles from spa,
they should show you the money and let you design it once they get the license.

I'm with you, jasonat...I look forward to Certified, Contenders, and SPA each year. Those are my three favorite products...but it's sad to see what happened to the 2011 SPA rookie patch auto design.
