Possibly The Best Fantasy Football Champion Photo Ever

A fantasy football trophy that deserves this kind of praise!

THIS photo entry is going to be tough to beat. Thanks to the guys of the “Signal 7 Heroes” league for sending in their entry for the Wall of Fame Photo Contest.

Fantasy Football Trophy as a Cake?

A fantasy football trophy as a cake?  Yes, that is what one lucky couple decided to have for the groom on their lucky day.  Hopefully the little frosted guy made it through the night and is now sitting in a frozen recliner in their freezer for one year in order to bring them some good luck.   Well probably more for the groom’s fantasy team to have good luck, but that’s neither here nor there.

Fantasy Football Trophy For Firemen

The Throwback-fantasy football trophy
The Throwback-fantasy football trophy

Recently I was asked if I could sculpt a fantasy football trophy for a group of firemen in Florida.   I knew that sculpting a trophy from scratch would be way too expensive so the idea was floated to just put a firefighter’s helmet on The Throwback.  I’ve done a few other small alterations to both The Throwback and The Armchair Quarterback in the past so I knew this idea could work.   I soon got to work and added a helmet to a large Throwback by sculpting it out of Magic Sculpt.  Magic Sculpt is a two part paste that, when mixed together in equal parts, hardens after a few hours.  It’s perfect because it gives you a good amount of time to sculpt what you want and it’s paintable.  Once it was done, I liked it so much that I decided to have my buddy James make a mold of the head so that I could cast more in the future.   The pictures below are of the sculpture during the mold making process.  I’ll have more photos in the near future and we’ll see how it turns out.  Stay tuned. – Dave

Fantasy Trophies – Football Is Near

It’s May and that means base building at the shop. With baseball in full swing and hockey and basketball entrenched in their playoffs, orders at FantasyTrophies.com always seem to slow down this time of year. However, work doesn’t. This is prime season for stocking up on trophies for football season and also building bases. As many of you know, our bases are made from solid white oak and given a poly finish. This enhances the rich dark color of the bronzed trophies and really sets off the black engraved plates. I plan on making a video soon on the process each base goes through before it’s shipped off to a customer, but for now, just be assured that all bases are definitely given A1 treatment.
