Below are the missing player checklist, any templates, and cards done of the 1951 Topps set.

I have the first part of the checklist done in 'yearbook style' and the last half done in the other style.

__1951 TOPPS MISSING PLAYERS CHECKLIST:__
TEAMS LISTED: Entire NL & AL

TEAMS FINISHED:~~ Boston Braves, Detroit Tigers~~

*In 1951, Topps released their first baseball card set, a set of cards that were used in a game. There were 2 52-card series issued, one set with blue backs, and one with blue. The sets featured different players and featured all MLB teams at the time. In order to simplify things, I have just started my set with number 53, and since the backs are interchangeable, they can be added to both sets.*

__TEMPLATES:__
Below is a template with the correct fonts for the 1951 Topps set. Here is a link for the Futura Medium font. Here is a link to the League Gothic font. Here is a link for the Limerick Demi Bold font. The card number is rotated at a -45 degree angle.

Below are any templates I have of the 1951 Topps set. All templates are made in MS Paint, are saved as .png files, and are standard size of the 1951 Topps set. There are 39 different card templates that I found in the 1951 Topps set, and all of them are pictured below, as well as a Red Back and a Blue Back template if you desire to have backs to the cards.

Also, to help with the bottom of the photo, I made a template of a pink shape, and I will attempt to explain how to use it. When you get your photo cut out and ready to paste into the template, you still need to get the bottom of the photo to come to a point like a diamond. The pink shape template should help you do that. I started with a basic template and a photo of a player I wanted to make a card of. I cut out around the player so I could get the 3D effect, and left the bottom of the photo flat.

Here is the file of the pink shape.

All you need to do is copy the pink shape, and paste it on the bottom of the player photo wherever would make the best spot so the photo is centered. You may have to fiddle with the placement of the pink shape, or even cut a little off of the bottom of the photo, but the pink shape should make the bottom of the player photo look like a diamond.

After the shape is in place, make the pink shape white or whatever the background color is.

Once that is done, just slide the player photo into the template, and finish the card.

(Note, I had to fiddle a little with this one and bring the original placement of the pink shape up and cut off some of the bottom and sides, but it did the trick.

__CARDS__
Below are any cards done for the 1951 Topps set.

These are great! Might have to try some myself.

ReplyDeleteare you still working on these cards

ReplyDeleteI’ve kind of switched to the 1991 Topps Traded set for now, but I will come back to this one in probably a month or so when ‘91 Topps Traded is finished. The ‘51 set is a tough one that takes a while to finish a card of, so I needed a little break.

Deletewhen you finish the 1951 will you be moving on to 1953

ReplyDeleteProbably not. I grew up with ‘90’s baseball, so right now, the order I’m going to go is 51, 99, 95, 96, 97, 00, 90, 01, 87, 86, 85, 88, and 89. When that is finished (probably a few years down the road), it will give me a complete run of Topps cards from 1983-2001. From there, it’s anyones guess, but I would probably be more interested in doing sets in the 2000’s, as I watched those guys (being born in 1983), and never even heard of a number of lesser name guys before 1980.

Deletethats a shame im really disappointed ive spent a lot of time looking at your 1950s lists very impressive job (few misses) hate to ask but do you know anyone doing 1950s

ReplyDeleteNot off hand. There is a group on Facebook who do customs. They range all over the board, but I’ve seen some on there. A guy who used to post on the page alot (David Jenkins) did a bunch of team sets from ‘60’s and ‘70’s sets, so he might have some up there. You can also search on the page for cards, so if you type ‘1958 Topps’ or whatever year you are looking for, you might find some that way. https://m.facebook.com/groups/612854715531519/

ReplyDeleteMaybe just do Google searches for ‘custom 1957 Topps’ or whatever year you are looking for and you never know, you might find someone who has done them. I think I’ve seen a custom 1954 Topps Indians set by doing a search for custom ‘54 Topps.

I think that because so much time has passed since the ‘50’s that not many people who do customs are interested in the time period.

thanks for answering i wish you luck with your work and look forward to seeing the balance of your 1951s

ReplyDeletei was just looking at your listing again i was wondering when you might complete it

ReplyDeleteSorry. I’m just finding the sets from the ‘90’s more interesting to me. I’m working on the 1995 Topps set currently.

Deleteit doesn't look like you are going to continue this project on 1951s

ReplyDeletecan you advise me how i might go about constructing my own using your templates

It’s probably too difficult to explain here, but I can try to post a video in the next few weeks of how I make them. I just have a lot going on right now (just got through the hurricane, new floors are getting installed and most of our stuff is in totes in our garage), so once our house is back in a somewhat good order and I have a little time after work or a day off, I’ll try to do a post with it. Feel free to ask me any questions if the video I make doesn’t quite explain everything.

Deletethank you
