Randy Williams 2

This is the second card of Randy to make the set this year. The first was one of Randy in a Charlotte Knights uniform. I met him in August when the Knights were in Indianapolis. He was very nice, and had fun with the fans before the game. I thought that his kindness was even more impressive considering he had been sent down not too long before after not doing too well in the show. (more…)

1988 Score – Brent Morel

I was having fun making rookie cards, and thought I would try the 1988 Score Prospects card. What better player to put on the card than Brent Morel? With most of the older cards I have doctored the actual card for this site. For the 1988 Score set though I made all the cards from scratch. This one was kind of easy and hard at the same time. The design is simple, but getting all the parts right was hard. (more…)


1985 Fleer – Bobby Jenks

1985 Donruss – Bobby Jenks

Keeping with the theme of the day here is another Bobby Jenks card. This is my take on the Donruss set from 1985. Something about that set has always appealed to me. I don’t really know why. It is not the best looking card around, but the simplicity of it I have always liked. (more…)


1977 Topps – Bobby Jenks

With the reports that the Red Sox are close to a deal with Bobby Jenks I thought that it would be a good day to post some of the cards that I made for him. The first of those is a 1977 Topps clone. (more…)


Bob Feller

I made this card a while back of Bob signing for me at his museum. It was part of the short print series from the set I was making this year. I had been to his museum three times before I met him. When I did he was nice as could be, and even gave me a great baseball for my collection. I already had a ball signed with just his name. I wanted something special, and he gave that to me. He signed the ball with an inscription that commemorated his Opening Day no-hitter against the White Sox. That has to tell you what a sick fan I am when I want a ball signed with something like that. It was a long inscription, but Bob did it with no problem. I was glad for the chance to meet him. (more…)


1987 Topps Jim Thome

Gentleman Jim was a popular player while playing with the White Sox. His two previous stops were Cleveland and Philadelphia where he hit many home runs. As a member of the White Sox he hit #500 to win a late season game in 2007. He played two more years on the South Side before signing with the Twins last season. (more…)


1985 Fleer Mark Kotsay

Since he probably won’t be back next season I thought that I would post this card of Mark Kotsay. I made a few cards with some players that were probably leaving or not on the team earlier in the year just to try out some different card sets. This one of Kotsay is from that time period. (more…)


Sandy Alomar Jr.

On the last day of the season the Indians were in town, and I had a great seat near first base. Coaching first for the Indians was none other than Sandy Alomar Jr. When he came up I was a huge fan of his. He was one of the hot prospects that was tabbed to have a great career. He did not have a Hall of Fame career, but it was not too shabby either. (more…)
