After the roaring success of the HalfLiner kickstarter campaign, I wanted to create something I could send to my most generous backers as a thank you. I had created a ticket design to use in the front of the HalfLiner and wanted to try to leverage it here too. The original plan was to have it letterpressed with black ink and gold foil, but I came to this version eventually, which I feel is a most richer design.
I came up with the ticket design while watching an episode of Downton Abbey one night, so if you’ve ever got a creative block, maybe stuffy British people are the cure!
The man in the poster is Grover Cleveland “Old Pete” Alexander, a pitcher who owns the National League record for shutouts with 90 and is in the Hall of Fame.
