Textures: Trading card backs by Uzlo Textures: Trading card backs by Uzlo

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

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.

Two things:
One. These are, by far, the most versatile stocks I have ever had the pleasure of using.
Two. I used them to complete this project: Lunatic Zodiac
Thank you.

You are a project-saver :XD: I've been sitting on something for months not knowing how to proceed; i sometimes even considered throwing the entire thing out. Then i saw these and knew they would be perfect. I'll post a link once i uploaded it. Thank you, you are the reason i could finally finish the damn thing in a satisfying way. :hug:
