From the Pedro Binder
2001 Upper Deck
Very very nice.
This is almost exactly what a Pedro card should look like. Nice big picture of Pedro? Check. Company logo hidden in a corner? Check. Pedro's name facing the right way? Check. Team Logo? Position? Uniform number? Check, check, and check some more. Simple design that doesn't detract form the picture? Double-check.
Really I only have one complaint. The constant use of gold foil. Part of me understands it. It assume that they have some sort of research that shows that people like the shiny foil. But, it sure makes everything on the front of the card hard to read. If not impossible.
Oh, and the picture of Pedro isn't spectacular. But, it's certainly not enough to detract from the overall beauty of the card. I love how the element of color is introduced into the lower left without taking away from the picture at all. You hardly know it's even there. It just makes things better. That's the proof of a great design. It just feels better, even if you don't know it.
This one certainly feels better to me.
