merging my pictures and cards

2011 csd Preview – Matt Holliday

Since coming to the Cardinals from the Athletics in 2009 Matt has provided some much needed protection for Albert Pujols in the Cardinals lineup. I took this picture the day after my birthday in 2009 as Matt was batting. He hit a home run, and I had the swing captured. I would act like it was planned, but i took a few pictures of Matt that day.

This is the first Cardinals card I have done so it was fun to come up with the back. I had a great picture taken from the upper deck of the new Busch Stadium. I new that I wanted to have both of the arches on the card. I loved how they mowed an arch into the grass. I think that this makes one of the cooler backgrounds so far.

    • That’s right he was on the A’s with OC who was on the Sox in 2008. Thanks for the clarification. This is now my first error card that wasn’t on purpose.
