merging my pictures and cards

1993 Donruss – Ozzie Guillen

This is kind of a weird card for me to make for two reasons. One of those is that Ozzie was in this set as a player. I usually don’t make cards like this, but I felt the need to make the card. The second reason is that Ozzie is no longer the manager of the Chicago White Sox. Ozzie came in and took the Sox to the next level. He won the World Series in just his second year at the helm of the team. He has never been able to re-create that success though, and that might be a partial reason as to why he was fired. As a Sox fan I am torn today. I realize that something had to happen. That being said I am excited to see how the Sox will go from here. Of course I am also sad to see the skipper go. (more…)


1972 Topps – Gordon Beckham

I don’t know why it has taken me so long to put this card out. It was one that I made during last season. Sometimes for one reason or another a card just sits in a folder on my computer for no reason. I would like to try this ’72 design again so I need to get this card out there. (more…)


1987 Topps – Kevin Eichhorn

I have already released several cards of Kevin. I remember when his dad was a hot rookie card to have so it was only natural that I made a few cards of him. I was already making the Whitecaps team set in the ’87 Topps style so I made one more while I had the template open to get Kevin in the set. (more…)


1987 Topps – Kyle Ryan

I only have a couple more of the cards that I made for the backs of my ’11 csd Custom set for the Midwest League opponents of the Silverhawks to go. Both cards are of West Michigan Whitecap players. (more…)


1988 Topps – Rocky Gale

So many cards to post and so little time to do it. I made this card back in May, and still have not gotten around to posting it. It is the last of my ’88 Topps cards for the Fort Wayne Tincaps. I made these cards for the backs of my 2011 csd Custom cards. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Miguel Cabrera

Since he came into the league with the Marlins Miguel Cabrera has been a force. He is now playing in what should be another post season after helping Detroit claim what you would guess in the Central. Both the Indians and Sox are so far back that it would take a monumental collapse by Detroit for either team to have a shot. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Jhonny Peralta

Since I have pretty much conceded the season to the Tigers now I thought that the next couple of cards should feature them. Jhonny was a late season pick up last year, and he has helped them to the Division title this season. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Michael Pineda

I first heard of Michael when he went up against the White Sox early this season. He had a good game, but most people do when they face the Sox for the first time. He did have good games against other teams though, and was selected to the All Star game. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Matt Holliday

Since I had some fun releasing my Midwest League All Star cards yesterday I thought that I would release a few of my MLB All Star glossies today. I thought that I would start it off with this card of Matt Holliday. For some reason I really like this card, and I think that is part of the problem of why some of these have not been released yet. I wanted to do it right. At some point though I just have to get them out there. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Zach Walters

The Silverhawks ended their season today with a win so I thought that the last card of the day should be of a Silverhawk player. Zach is a guy who started off strong. Sadly I moved before the end of the season so I really have lost touch with this team. (more…)
