1962 Topps

1962 Topps – A.J. Pierzynski

I like the look of this 1962 card. Like the ’57 Topps design it really looks modern, but I like the look just the same. This is the third card of the AJ dump that I scheduled for today. Since I would not be around I wanted to get some of these cards of AJ out there. I was proud of a few of them, and thought that maybe more people should see them. (more…)

1962 Managers Dream – Derek Jeter, Robinson Cano

While looking for a card to make a 1962 Topps card with I ran across the classic card with both Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays on it titles Managers Dream. While finding some pictures yesterday for some Yankee cards I found the one I used with both Cano and Jeter on it. I was going to use it for a Fleer Super Star Special, but thought that it would work here. (more…)

1962 Topps – Lucas Harrell

Yesterday I picked up my first packs of 2011 Topps. In the course of opening them I found two of the 1962 Topps reprints of Gaylord Perry. I wasn’t too excited about the player, but it did give me an idea to try and reproduce the card. I found a picture of the Josh Hamilton Topps Heritage card and doctored it up a bit. The hardest part was taking off the writing on the bottom. Actually the hardest part was trying to to get the wood back to a point where it looks like it belongs. After several failed attempts I got something that i could live with. I really like how the cards looked back then, and I am glad that I now have a template to make some more. (more…)
