Oh, and for the Opening Day set, add a big, honking Opening Day logo, too.
Now, I'm a firm believer in the idea of less is more. That may be hard to believe from all the words I tend to put into blog posts, but trust me - while I tend to ramble I also do a lot of editing. Each paragraph is about a third longer before I go back and edit out the fluff.
picture width = 1 15/16 = 1.9375", picture height = 2 3/8 = 2.375"
1.9375" x 2.375" = 4.602 sq. in., (4.602/8.750) x 100 = 52.6%
See? Crazy, right?And yet the design of this set just....works. It doesn't come off as cluttery; in fact, it's aesthetically quite pleasing despite the numerous elements that went into it's design. It looks like a baseball card.

If I ever meet Griffey, I am certain we will mismatch our attempts at a greeting resulting in what I call a dap-slap, that being one person goes to shake hands and the other goes to bump and the two meet in an awkward communion of fingers and palms that looks just terrible. I'll try and get video if it ever happens.
