1986 Topps – Calvin Gunter

This is another card that was made for the back of my custom card last year. For some reason though that set never got finished, and the cards that were made just sat in a folder. Finally this card can see the light of day. It is very good timing too as the Boilers finally come home tonight to play their first home game of the season. It will not be in the new stadium as previously planned, but it will still be nice to see the boys play. They have been very good, and finally getting some national attention. It will be nice to see them getting some local attention after work today. (more…)

1985 Fleer – Jason Varitek

With Tek retiring I thought that he deserved another day on this site. My favorite player was a catcher on the Red Sox, and ever since then I have taken a little notice of the other backstops in Boston. Rich Gedman was the one in the 80’s that caught my eye. For a long time now Jason Varitek has been the guy. I took this picture last August while Jason was catching against the White Sox. I was happy that he caught the Sunday game so that I could see him catch one last time. Varitek has really succeeded at every level that he has played. Look up his stats, and you will be impressed with how his teams have done over the years. Boston has a huge hole to fill.  (more…)
