For the duration of the 2015/16 season, there will be not one but two LFC Postcard series'. The first set, "The Perfect Season" was explained in my last blog post. The second series is entitled "The Player Series" and was born out of the feedback taken from various customers last season.
Numerous LFC fans have got in touch over the past 12 months to let me know that whilst they enjoyed the designs of some of last seasons postcards, the negative scoreline often spoiled it for them. From that feedback, "The Player Series" was born.
The series will include new postcards, released weekly, featuring a different player from the LFC squad each time, starting with new captain Jordan Henderson. Over the duration of the season "The Player Series" will include all of the main members of the current first team squad.
But there's more! A range of legends postcards will also be released, featuring stars from the past including the likes of Kenny Dalglish, John Barnes, Ian Rush, Robbie Fowler, Sami Hyypia, Luis Garcia, Jamie Carragher and many others! There will also be a number of additional designs released from time to time, including:
- Limited edition "away kit" postcards. Featuring players from past or present wearing an LFC away kit from their era. These cards will be limited edition and available for a short time only. They will be released at various points across the season.
- "Cult hero" postcards, featuring the likes of Momo Sissoko, Jari Litmanen and Dirk Kuyt. These postcards will also be limited and each one will be hand numbered. They will be released for a short period of time at various points throughout the season.
- Manager Postcards, featuring some of the great leaders that have left a legacy at LFC.
- Hand drawn, one off postcards, illustrated by myself. These postcards will be extremely rare and will follow the same format as regular postcards but will be drawn by hand, by me! Only one of each design will be available. More details will be released nearer the time.
You will also get an opportunity to get involved as I will be looking for suggestions on which legends players to tackle next, giving fans the chance to have a major input on the series as it progresses through the season.
"The Player Series" postcards are ideal to take with you and get autographed if you ever get the opportunity to meet one of your LFC heroes. They are small enough to fit in your pocket to take to the match or a trip to Melwood and would also make a great piece to take and get signed at one of the many legends events or charity dinners that happen regularly through the season.
So keep an eye on my blog, twitter account and instagram page over the next week as "The Player Series" will kick off very shortly!
