    In my main league my team is the Blackhawks. I used the 1974 Topps set for design inspiration. I know I'm a big, fat nerd, oh wellz!! Wanted to share with you guys

    Jerseydatabase seems to have run its course on the hockey side so I think there are many who are looking for alternatives. I doubt you have this done on a large scale but this is a really cool idea.

    Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle?
    Boxing rings are square.
    Why do we put SUITS in a Garment bag and GARMENTS in a Suitcase?
    If women wear a pair of glasses, a pair of shoes, a pair of pants and a pair of ear-rings, why don't they wear a pair of bras?
    Why is Madison SQUARE Garden round?

    Photoshop.

    Made the template from scratch - fairly easy.

    Found high-res photos on Google Images.

    Cropped the backgrounds out of the images with Lasso Tool in Photoshop (took the longest).

    Created a blue gradient background (often used in retro hockey cards as photo backdrops).

    Fun fact: I worked on GEGL which is one of the processing engines for GIMP as part of a Google Summer of Code project. They were nice enough to put everyone's name as contributors on their main page (http://www.gegl.org/).

    Awesome job man, they look bad ass.

    On a semi-related note, I haven't played with any photo-editing software since Photoshop CS2, but I was using PowerPoint for work recently and discovered that the photo-editing (for basic/intermediate applications) was really impressive. Of particular note is the "Remove Background" tool which is extremely user friendly and quite effective. Just a thought that you might want to actually give it a try fungchen since you said that took the longest
