Hummm. I really like both.I think B is going to be my pick though as it seems more "basebally". VERY NICE for those sports fanatics!

B. I like the way the word 'stats' stands out in this layout.

I voted A. I like it without the solid bar at the bottom, now that it's not full-bleed. Looks great!

Tough choice as both look good. I'm picking B just because the Stats box pop nicely.

A! Soooo cute! Love the concept. For some reason, not having the blue banner on the bottom makes my eye focus on the top, which I like.

I think the heavier bar at the bottom balances out the banner at the top.

B. I agree with Jessica that the "stats" bar is a good balance. It also reinforces the sports card theme. Perfectly adorable, Laura! :)

This is so cute, Laura. I agree that the STATS banner balances out the top but think that A might work better with a variety of photos since it's more translucent. So A for me.

I was thinking B at first, but I do think A shows off the photo more. The bar is a little distracting after looking for a minute. Cute!

I voted B. I would center the name in that banner - it looks like it's closer to the left. Great idea!

I like B :) So cute! maybe add a little more space between "announcing" and "rookie" or scale back the whole top just a tad :)

Tough call. I voted A bc it's gives the photo a bit more space and I think that will be better for more photos. I do love both though so either way you are golden.

I like A more than B. It's more open and I find the blue banner distracting from the photo in B. Cool design!
