1985 Fleer – Carlos Peguero
Carlos worked his way onto this site. I had never heard of him until yesterday. He was taking some balls in left field when I noticed him during batting practice Wednesday. When he came up to the plate in BP he was the only one in his group going yard. I would only pay attention when he came up, but he was hitting the balls way too far to my left for me to get to. Then he hit one right at me. I only had to move a row or two down, and I put my mitt up and had my first MLB ball of the season.
Because he hit me a ball I decided to give him a 2011 custom card. In order to make the card I had to make this one for the back. I chose a shot of him in the field because it really looked like it belonged on this card. I have an action shot of him that will go on his 2011 card. This picture with it’s lack of action seemed to fit perfect. I also like the fact that my name is on his sleeve. I like to put pictures with special patches on the cards, and when it is my name that makes it even cooler.
