Batter Up! - Baseball swap

# of players: 25 maximum
Sign up by: June 15, 2008
# of cards: 3/3
Cards due by: July 1, 2008

Baseball season is coming!!
A friend of mine's son loves baseball and has recently redone his room in a baseball theme. He is 11 years old. This swap is for her/him. I hope to have enough of my cards in the end to create a framed selection of cards for him. I will probably run this swap on all 3 sites.

Swap guidelines:

Baseball must be the major theme depicted, otherwise anything goes.

All mediums welcome.
No prints or copies, unless digital of course.
All photography submitted should be original and printed on quality paper.
You may use good prints of copyright free images.
If you submit hand-drawn cards, I expect the artwork to be your own. If the artwork incorporates other work, there must be enough self-expression and altering in the piece to make it truly your work.
Put your USERNAME, real name, and swap on the backs of all your cards.
Please put all cards in clear plastic sleeves
Please nothing too bulky

Mailing Info:

Cards DUE on or before July 15, 2008
Canadian players send a SASE, I will put my return address label on your return envelope.
US players, include a mailing label, also if you could slip a US dollar somewhere in the envie to help with postage that would be great, but not required.
International participants: Please send a clearly written return label with your address. I will provide envelopes. I'll cover postage.
Put your USERNAME & SWAP & SITENAME, on the back of your return envelope
I will post your feedback when I receive your cards.

Looking good Lori. Can't wait to see them in hand.

07-02-2008, 01:12 PM
Very cool, lori!

07-03-2008, 05:19 PM
Mail call! I got Lola123s and CHRISMs cards today. Great job both of you.

Chris, I didn't even notice at first that the one stamp was a "cheater".

07-03-2008, 11:06 PM
Got my cards posted today. Had to go into extra innings but made it to the post office on time.
So was using a pink paint marker and had an extra glob of wet stuff on a piece of scrap cardboard. Our cat Skittles comes by and sits down on the scrap and gets pink paint all over her butt. She's a clown anyway, but this will be one of her famous stories.

07-04-2008, 08:18 AM
Well can't wait to see if you hit a home run!!

07-04-2008, 04:39 PM
Jazzie, I got your cards today. They turned out great. I love those old baseball pics.

Thanks for the extra.

07-07-2008, 05:24 PM
Goblin Giggles, I got your cards today. Thanks for the extra! Love the ta-tas one!!

07-10-2008, 11:24 PM
I wonder where my cards are????

07-11-2008, 05:40 AM
ObviousFront, your cards came yesterday. You were the only one so far to take the food angle. How funny. Thanks for the extra and the little capacitator dude. How cute!

07-11-2008, 05:40 AM
Lori, hopefully they'll be here soon.

07-11-2008, 03:50 PM
Lori, yours came today, so you can relax hun! Thanks for the extra!!

07-11-2008, 04:15 PM
I just don't understand why it takes so long for mail to go between our two countries! I can mail a letter to my friend in Scotland and she gets it in 4 days.

07-11-2008, 04:31 PM
Yeah, I know. It's frustrating.

07-13-2008, 06:19 PM
All the cards are packed up and will go out in tomorrows mail. Thanks for playing everyone! We made a good team!

07-14-2008, 09:36 AM
I made a total of 4 on this theme, so here are my last 2.
