Textures: Trading card backs

Hello! 

Not long ago, my grandmother and I looked through some of her stored away boxes and in them we found her old celebrity trading cards from (I think) the 1950s. She gave them to me so I could scan them – which I did! – but I realized that their backs were worth scanning too.

I use these kinds of textures from time to time (I love them) and feel you can't have to many. Furthermore: it's nice to do things like this yourself as they can be pretty expensive on stock photo websites. So here's my late Christmas gift for you all: a ~35mb zip file with 50 old card backs. I left the writing on those written on; I like the look of it.

Feel free to use these textures as you please, and if you find them useful, I'd appreciate it if you linked back to here so that more people that might want them can find them. Thanks <3

Hi! Whenever I download the zip file and try to open it doesn't open. I'm not sure if this is an issue with the file or with me!

Making a fan film for the release of FarCry5 and did a card series based on the promo cards for the in game characters. Only about 8 of the characters appear in the film but we just dressed some crew members to make up the rest :D

These are so wonderful, thank you for sharing such a useful, high-quality resource. I used one of them here: eversoscrumptiously.wordpress.… Look for the vintage-looking studio frame in the Elements preview - it gets its truly vintage realism from your texture.
