Honey, I Screwed up the Custom
I am pretty sure that the man on the card above is Ian Kinsler. Because unlike the last time, I checked the description underneath the picture to make sure that Ian Kinsler was on the picture, and not J.D. Martinez.
Thank you to the commenters who squinted a little bit and realized 'hey wait a minute, that's not the guy we traded for that's doing well enough...that's the guy we traded for who's playing really well!' If I was a bit more well-versed in Tigers-dom, I would have known the difference between a picture of Ian Kinsler and a picture of J.D. Martinez. But the caption underneath the original photo had tagged both players, regardless of the fact that Kinsler wasn't even in the shot.
Just to reiterate, I didn't rush this custom to simply remedy a mistake. If Ian Kinsler should have a custom, he's getting a custom. And if it's not him the first time, then I needed to get it right the second time, and get it so right that it at least made up for that mistake.
So here is Ian Kinsler, smiling, in a Tigers uniform.
(Although I should be lucky that I didn't accidentally get a picture of a batboy or anything)
