1983 Topps – Paul Konerko/Carlton Fisk

Watching the Sox game tonight I saw Paul Konerko hit a home run over the Green Monster to give the White Sox a 3-1 lead over the Red Sox. The home run was important because it was the 376th of Paulie’s career. That tied him with Carlton Fisk for 66th all time. This is important to me because two of my favorite players of all time are now linked for what I hope is a very short period. The event inspired me to make my first card in quite some time. I thought that I would post it right away so that others could enjoy it. I posted the card as a 1983 Topps because I just basically tweaked my ’83 Topps Super Veteran template to make the card.

1991 Leaf – Tyler Spillner

Tyler made the 2010 custom set because of a great catch he made while crashing into the plywood wall during a game I witnessed live. He is a talented member of the team that was going to make this year’s set regardless of performance. His home run in the first game of the Big Ten Tournament this season was huge. (more…)


1986 Topps – Cameron Perkins

Cameron is another of the very talented sophomore players on the Boilermaker squad. He has really performed well in the games that I have seen the Boilers play. He will be fun to watch as he finishes out his Boiler career. I enjoy watching him play so much that I made a second retro card for him. (more…)


1985 Topps – Nick Wittgren

Nick is the closer for the Boilers. Since they are playing in the Big Ten Tournament this weekend I thought that I would post a few cards that I have already made of them. (more…)


1985 Topps – Eric Charles

Today Purdue starts play in the Big Ten Tournament. With that in mind I thought I would post some cards of the Boilers today. The first of those is this ’85 Topps card of Eric Charles. Eric is a scrappy player that I really enjoy watching. He just seems to have a knack of getting on base and scoring. (more…)


2011 csd Custom – Eric Kartman

Can you guess why Eric has made this set? When I heard his named announced during a game against Purdue I had to check my roster to see if I heard it right. Although it is not spelled the same it is pronounced just like the South Park character. I immediately knew that he had to make this set. (more…)


2011 csd Custom – Kelly Johnson

Kelly is another player that has been in both major sets I have made. His 2010 custom card which is on the back of this one shows just his back, but I like the picture of him finishing a pop up slide so I put the picture on the card. Kelly is part of a young core in Arizona that could make some noise in the not too distant future. (more…)
