Here is a trading card I designed for a local racer and friend of mine.

I hoped to make cards for more drivers but with so many having money troubles and the fact that my custom designed cards were more expensive than many of the cheaper options other companies had he was only one of three racers to order cards all season long. I will not be making more for 2011. It is neat though that someone got a hold of all three cards I made got them signed and sold them on ebay for $25 plus shipping. It was kind of neat to know I made something that people out there think is collectible.

Two interesting facts about Mike. He is actually the only driver in UMP history to win most improved driver for the same division (the printed version of the card specifies that) and he got a new sponsor days after I made the cards for him and he changed his number to 81.
