Looking good early. Always a fan of cracked ice
May I suggest “leather” cards as well, since you’re already doing “wood” cards. You could use similar technology to what you use in Marquee basketball.

Looks like an improved release this year, really digging the addition of the Cracked Ice parallels to give the product a modern flair. Thanks Tracy!
The wood card is so cool, I can not wait to see more.
