2011 csd Preview – Grady Sizemore
Grady is a great center fielder. The picture above does not show it, but he really is a great athlete. If you have seen his pictures that he posted online with his camera phone he is built as well. When looking for his rookie card for the back of this edition I stumbled upon a couple of custom cards that people had made of his cell phone pictures. Those were pretty good. As it says on the back of the card this picture was taken on what should have been the last day of the regular season in 2008 as Grady was warming up before the game. I really don’t have too many good pictures of Sizemore because I either have bad seats, or he was injured that game. Maybe this year I can see him play again.
The back of this card is of another stadium that I have never been to. I have had tickets in my hand three times, but something has always come in the way of my trip. One of the cool things about making these cards are the things that you learn while doing it. I never knew that Grady was in the Expos organization at one time. For some reason I just missed that fact. I guess something good comes out of every card I make.
