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…)


1989 Upper Deck – Jimmy Rollins

Saturation Saturday continues with this card of Jimmy Rollins. When I saw the Phillies play the Cubs in July I was worried that my seats in the bleachers would prevent me from seeing the Phillies stars. It turned out I did not get the pictures that I would have liked to get of Roy Halladay and Ryan Howard. (more…)


1989 Upper Deck – Mike Rohde

Saturation Saturday continues with this card of Mike Rohde. Mike is the first baseman for the Gary SouthShore Railcats of the American Association. I go to a few games each year in Gary so I thought I might try a couple of their players to see how it looked. I love this picture of Mike sliding into home on Opening Day. Just the way he is making sure he touches the plate. Part of the fun of attending these smaller games is the fact you can get a little closer to the action for a lower price. (more…)


1989 Upper Deck – Magglio Ordonez

The dump of the sideways cards continues with this card of Magglio Ordonez. Mags was one of my favorite guys to watch when he played for the Sox. I was sad to see him go when he injured his knee. I hoped that he would recover, but it is hard to root for a guy who plays in your division. (more…)


1989 Upper Deck – Jose Reyes

The dump of sideways 1989 Upper Deck cards continues with this Jose Reyes card. As I have said before I have too many cards in this set due to the fact I put every picture that would look better sideways on this card. I have to make a couple other templates that will take the sideways picture, but until then I need to clear my computer of some of these. (more…)


1989 Upper Deck – Alexei Ramirez

I already had a card for this set for Alexei when I made this one. Thankfully I already set a little precedent by just changing the logo on the card. The other Alexei had the new logo on it so I just placed the logo that was on the original card here. This card is actually very easy once the template is made. In photoshop I have the teams I have used on the sidebar so I just click on the right one, and it appears where it should. Then I just have to change the name and position and I am good to go. (more…)


1989 Upper Deck – Omar Vizquel

For some reason I seem to like to put all of my pictures of players sliding and on the ground on the 1989 Upper Deck card. I thought that I would start Saturation Saturday off with this card of Omar sliding into home against the Royals. I had so many cards of players on the ground in some capacity in this set I thought I would post a few of them today. (more…)
