As a kid, I had tons of hockey trading cards. I loved all of the different design styles for the cards. I remember the joy of ripping open a pack of cards and searching for a collectable card. With this project I wanted to recreate that joy of opening a new pack of cards. The cards I opened up as a kid generally came from the 80s, 90s, and 2000s, but I wanted to design my cards to look older than that. After a lot of research, I started making my own vintage hockey trading cards based on the teams in the 2019 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs.
