1980 Topps – Scott Podsednik

Once I made this template for the White Sox I knew that I would be making a few of this card. I don’t know why, but I really like it. It is basically a ripoff by Topps of their 1974 set. They changed a few colors, but not too much else. I really have no real leanings towards that 1974 set, but I really like this set. I had a Fred Howard card early on in my trading career. For a while this was my oldest card. Maybe that has something to do with my liking for this set. (more…)

1981 Fleer – Gavin Floyd

I was not too happy with how small my first attempt at the 1981 Fleer card was so I decided to try again. I really could not find a card online that was big enough for a decent template. I tried again with a different card, but I think I ended up with the same result. I used a Rangers card that was a little bigger, and just changed the team name. I can make a couple teams with this template now. (more…)


1990 Skybox – E’Twaun Moore

With Purdue starting a big game right now against Michigan State I thought that I would post this card of E’Twaun. I originally wanted to make a card for him becoming the fifth player in Purdue history to eclipse the 2,000 point mark. I made this base card first before putting the ribbon on it for the 2,000 point mark. I liked it so much plain that I decided to post it both with and without the ribbon. (more…)


1978 Topps – Carlos Quentin

After having so many themed days I thought I would post some random cards today. I like this 1978 Topps design so I am sure that I will have quite a few of these cards before I am done here. I already have a handful waiting to be put on the site. Being snowed in with nothing to do a couple times this winter really helped me stockpile some cards. Now I just have to take my time and get them on this site. (more…)


1989 Upper Deck – Starlin Castro

The last card of the day is of the Cubs shortstop. Starlin Castro came to the club with a lot of fanfare last summer. He had a great first game which made the expectations of him go through the roof. He did not turn the team around like some thought that he would, but he did have a very good season. It will be interesting to see how his second season treats him. White Sox phenom Gordon Beckham did not have a great sophomore campaign so this should be interesting. (more…)


1989 Upper Deck – Chris Young

Only two more cards left in the 1989 Upper Deck dump that I have put on today. This card is of Diamondbacks centerfielder Chris Young. Chris was once a highly thought of prospect in the Sox organization. It is amazing how many of these promising centerfielders that the team traded away. It is no wonder they were hurting in center for a few years before getting Alex Rios. (more…)


1989 Upper Deck – Andruw Jones

The flood of 1989 Upper Deck cards continues with this card of Andruw. I really was high on Jones at the beginning of the season. He came out of the box on fire it seemed like. He was in double digit home runs very quickly, but then seemed to hit a wall. He was still fun to watch play the game, and I was sad to see him go from an entertainment standpoint. He is now playing for the Yankees. I was able to see him play his first game for them today thanks to the MLB Network. (more…)
