What exactly is going on here?

Hi there.

Well for starters, my name is Jesse.  When I was a kid I collected anything that came in a wax pack (or cello for that matter).  So, trading cards of any sort represent a very nostalgic part of growing up for me.  Fast forward a bit, not all that long ago I started sending some of my non-sports cards through the mail (TTM) trying to get autographs on them as a fun little hobby.  I realized that although some of my favorite things were on 2.5" x 3.5" pieces of cardboard, others were not.  So, I got the idea to try and make my own trading cards.  Through trial and toil -all of my photoshopping "skills" are self taught- I can now turn out some pretty cool cards with the end goal of having my little creations autographed by the card's celebrity subject.

You'll find that most of my cards are, but not limited to, '80s nostalgia.  Most of my designs pay homage to the classic Topps card sets I collected growing up.  I'd love to get autographs of people like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone, but they're not known for signing TTM autographs, so you probably won't see cards of them on here.

Enjoy.  Questions, comments, and "Yo Mama" jokes are always welcomed.
