2011 American Pie box break

Opened a box of American Pie, lots of good stuff like:

my hits:

( ^ think I have this one already)

^ McLean looking LEAN (making the ladies swoon back in the 70’s or whatever)

^ /25

^ THATSA THWEE COLER PATCH!

These next two are hilarious, can’t believe Topps actually did this:

^ That’s noted “bloggist” Chris Harris of http://blog.stalegum.com/

I even got a 3D parallel of him!

NICE!

 

Overall I give this box/product 5 out of a possible 5 knife slashes.

 

here’s the video:

2012 Topps GoldRush promo cards set to feature horrific subliminal embeds

What’s that? oh yes, these card mocks have some imagery on them straight from the depths of hell.

Originals from Beckett:

Let’s zoom in on the top right:

What the? It looks like some pissed off demon guy is staring at me!

Lets up the contrast!

Actually that didn’t really help or hurt any, if you don’t see him I’ve created a handy labeled version:

And now the lower left:

Doesn’t really look like a face or anything at first glance, but after staring at it for awhile I was able to determine that it is in fact a collage of hellish faces twisting in agony, HELL SELL!

That’s not even mentioning the weird Beckett logo embed on the lower right, what’s up with that?

Big Hits page

I added a page where you can view all the “BIG HITS” themed videos I’ve done. I’m trying to better organize things so hopefully I’ll be adding more pages soon.

Access the page by click the tab at the top or clicking here:

2011 Bowman Big Hits video and gallery

BOWMAN IN SPACE!

This video was originally going to be about BrentandBecca ‘s 25 Jumbo case break, but due to some potential controversy about which I know little, it was reformatted into a general “big hits” type of video.
Below are all the card images I gathered in preparation for both videos, the reason that there are far more images below then were in the video is because I thought I might do something where I brought out a bunch at one time (IN SPACE).  That proved to be to much of a hassle because I don’t have the Particular 2 plugin anymore in AE.

The 1/1 Harper base red was something I thought about putting in the video but eventually decided not to due to the same reasons as above, (removing the watermarks)

Almost all of these had to be cropped in Photoshop. (on eBay I hit “print screen”, pasted the image into Photoshop, and cropped from there)

Big hits from Gypsy Queen (video)

FUN FACTS:

I used a distorted version of the Tarot card back on both sides of the cards shown throughout.

The blending mode eliminated all the white from the image, after that I lowered the opacity, probably a bit too much now that I look at the video.

1:07 is “Strasburg” back masked. (reversed)
