This has the potential to be an outstanding sig. Probably better than the one I did already.
But for it to be an outstanding sig
1. You need to find better, higher resolution pics of players than those. You can probably go ask(but don't ask so often that it annoys the people there) on minorleagueball.com, I got a pretty good quality pic of Tim Lincecum over there on the message board.
Then, as Snake has said, the players needs to be the focus and most of their body don't really need to be showed. They probably should be 1)Have around the same type of color types on first look, one shouldn't be significantly darker than the other, the Hirsh pic produce the most problem. 2)Be about the same size, though that is probably of less importance(by this I mean Hirsh's head shouldn't be half the size of Wood's). And 3)Big, and clear
as Snake have said, add a glow or a stroke would help a lot.
As to the background, i think it's great, but I can agree with Snakes that it's slightly distracting, lower the Opacity or add some sort of pattern to lower its color will probably do it.
And lastly, how you did that background? Or is it just a stock pic?
