Deadball Era Baseball Cards

I've been toying around today with the designs used by American Tobacco Co. in 1911:
http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/bbhtml/bbhome.html

With some editing I managed to come up with a design I like.

If anyone would like to use these fee free to do so. The card template goes to

\data\bb_cards\templates\images

inside your OOTP11 installation folder, the xml goes into

\data\bb_cards\templates

Back up your original files, though!

I will add HOF and AS templates soon. Constructive criticism is, of course, welcome.

And here goes the Hall of Fame version.

I noticed that some of the shorter player names will leave seem to be bigger than the intended box. Personally, I like the effect - it looks like somewhat imperfect printing.

And, finally, the All Star variant.

Thanks. For the most part it's just cannibalizing the original designs for the front side, though.

I like the cigarette ad on the back of the card. I am sure you not trying to target minors at all!

Got a question about Baseball Cards... Can you have multiple templates or just one?

You can have multiple card templates, but only one XML file each for default/All Star/HOF each, so you'd have to edit the XML every time you want to use a different graphical template.

I re-did the design slightly. I'll be running baseball cards for my team and league leaders (batting/pitching) at the end of each season, so I added current season stats to the cards (except for HOF, obviously) to see how the players did in the season.

Here are the xml files ...

... and the final results.

Btw: has anyone figured out yet if there's a tag for the player's position?

It has been proposed, however I don't believe has been implemented yet. Hopefully in a patch.
