I'm not sure how The Show has incorporated the WBC in the past, but I put together a few cards I think could be fun. I can't post the images directly in here (maybe I just don't know how) but I added the link to my twitter where I have the image. Let me know what you think of these, and if there is anyone else you'd like to see from this set.

Going to miss watching that this spring

Those look amazing btw and it’s definitely something I could see The Show doing. Does anyone remember if they addressed the 2017 WBC in The Show ‘17? I don’t think they did.

You used the French flag instead of the Dutch flag. The Dutch flag has red, white and blue horizontal banners from top to bottom. As a Dutch citizen I am slightly insulted that you didn't do a bit more research in such a simple fact.

SDS

Really? Sorry about that, I pulled that off the Netherland Wiki page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_the_Netherlands). Meant no disrespect.

I actually see how you would think its the French flag, but it's actually the flag of the Netherland s turned 90 degrees to the right so it fits the space vertically.

But kind sir, that's not how flags work. The way it is represented behind Didi it is 100% the French flag. You can't do that with flags who have colored banners. With the US flag, yeah we get it... it's one of a kind regardless of how you rotate it. Everyone will know it's the US flag. But with our flag, and there are more countries like us, rotating a flag will mean a completely different country. I know you didn't mean any disrespect by it, but it's incorrect and to us it is a big deal.

Can you do a Freddie Freeman one?

French flag would have a thicker middle white section given the visible length of the image. It's very clearly is a dutch flag rotated. Especially given the context of other cards as reference.

Are you really gonna lecture me about sentiment that you are clueless about, given the fact you're not Dutch let alone European? We have history here, the flags mean something. To simply pass it off as a designer decision is even more insulting than it being an actual unfortunate mistake.

Again, I didn't mean to offend at all, I've revised here. was a complete mistake:

Well now you're just making assumptions which actually turn out to not be true. Granted, I wouldn't expect you to know anything about my family history.

Regardless, you're entitled to be upset about something and have your opinion. I just hope for your sake not everything makes you as defensive as this.

SDS

As a proud Puerto Rican and American I took it for granted that simply turning the flag 90 degrees to the right would work for all flags. Didn't realize it might be offensive to some or that it would simply not work for all. I was just trying to have some fun and design some potential cards. With that said, I don't want to offend anyone, so If there is a Dutch citizen who takes offense to the portrayal of his nations flag, I'm going to listen and address it. I'm going to create some more of these as I've been having a blast with them. Working on Freddie Freeman (USA), Francisco Lindor (Puerto Rico), Robinson Cano (Dominican Republic) and Francisco Cervelli (Italy). Let me know if there is anyone you think think I should design.

You did try to lecture me about the sentiment I hold in regard to our flag. The only assumption I made was that I don't think you're Dutch and so you wouldn't understand the sentiment. Was I wrong, are you in fact Dutch and do you therefore in fact understand the sentiment? Because if not, I had every right to be defensive towards your ignorant and most of all unnecessary comment.

We need to lighten the mood in this thread!

I myself am not Dutch, no. The part you were mistaken about is that I'm British in Canada.

However, my fiance is Dutch. Both parents born in the Netherlands. I lived with them for a few years (in Canada) in a custom built house with 9 people, 3 generations and all of them are 100% Dutch. I'm VERY familiar with your culture, so please don't think I'm insensitive.

However, in the context of the above photos it was very clear what was being presented.

Be proud of your history. Don't ever lose it and make sure (if you ever move) that your family learns of their past.

Also, have a little more understanding for people who accidentally offend you, and perhaps let some things that aren't intended to upset slide.

This seems fitting given everything I said previously.

Have a good one.

Flags that have nothing on them but solid colors always annoyed me. Put something on your dang flags people! Show some pride in something. Even if nothing ever happens there.
