1985 Topps 25th Anniversary – Frank Thomas

Not too long from now I will be leaving here to go to U.S. Cellular Field to the statue of Frank Thomas get unveiled. I thought that it would be cool to post a card of Frank today. This was another card that I made to over the winter to commemorate 25 years of going to Major League games. Just a couple of days after that anniversary I was back at the ballpark to see Frank get his number retired. This picture was taken during his speech. (more…)


2001 Upper Deck Decades – Carlton Fisk

I thought that since the White Sox were unveiling the statue of the Big Hurt tomorrow I would make a card from the last time I was at the ballpark to see a statue unveiled. Of course it was of Carlton Fisk. I altered the Upper Deck card a little to  make it my own. (more…)


1987 Topps – Mike Aviles

Mike was a player that for some reason I got some pretty good pictures of last July. I moved around and ended up just behind the Royals dugout. I liked this picture, and made this card of Mike a while ago. As high as the bat was I thought that it could have been a ’88 Score card, but I like how this one turned out as well. (more…)


1987 Fleer – Rossmel Perez

During his short time in South Bend Rossmel became one of my favorite Silverhawk players. It didn’t hurt that he was a catcher, but he really seemed to have fun playing the game. I would love to see him play for the Diamondbacks one of these days. (more…)


1985 Fleer – Lucas Harrell

This is a card that I made early on in my card making career. I was playing around with making a ’85 Fleer template when I made this card. I think that I have made a much better template now. This card is pretty rough, but I done like to remake cards. This is how I made it so this is how I will post it. (more…)


1986 Topps – A.J. Pierzynski

This will be the final ’86 Topps card tonight. It is also one of the oldest that I have made. I made this last October as part of a mini set of A.J. cards in case he did not come back to the Sox. I really thought that he would be gone for sure. If Tyler Flowers (who had a card a couple of posts ago) had played a little better I think that A.J. would have been gone. Thankfully though he was brought back to the Sox. (more…)


1986 Topps – Hector Luna

Here is yet another card from the ’86 Topps set. This makes four in a row for the set on this blog. This is the 25th anniversary of the set, and I thought that over the year I could make a few of them. It is a simple design to copy so it has that going for it as well. (more…)


1986 Topps – Tyler Flowers

Here is another card in my series today of White Sox and Red Sox players to commemorate the 25th anniversary of my second Major League game between those two teams. Tyler is a prospect that has been the talk of the team since 2009. I took the picture on the front of this card in 2009 as Tyler was seeing some action late in a game. It was my first time seeing him, and I was pretty excited. (more…)


1986 Topps – Brent Dlugach

Brent is a player that I would love to see play in the big leagues one day. I saw him play for the West Michigan Whitecaps who are the Single A Affiliate of the Detroit Tigers. A couple of years later I saw him play for Toledo who is the Triple A affiliate of the Tigers. Now I have seen him play for yet another Triple A team. He would be one of the few players that I have seen play at three levels of baseball if he ever made it up to the Bigs. (more…)


1986 Topps – Zach Stewart

I have been following Zach for some time now as a player. In 2009 I saw him pitch for the Las Vegas 51’s at Wrigley Field as part of the Road to Wrigley game. I took some pictures of him, and had a couple that turned out fairly decent. I posted one of them on my other website along with a quick recap of the game. That is when one of the cooler things that I have found about blogging happened. His mother found the pictures, and wanted to know if I had anymore. I sent them to her, and that small personal connection was enough for me to check on Zach’s progress from time to time. Today Zach was traded to my White Sox as part of the deal that sent Edwin Jackson and Mark Teahen to the Blue Jays. I look forward to taking some pictures of him as a member of the Sox. (more…)
