1973 Topps

1986 Topps – Carlton Fisk Tribute (1972-1975)

Part of the fun for me with this blog is going back and re-creating the cards that I loved as a child. For the most part I have taken my pictures and put them on the templates from pre 90’s cards. One of the cooler sub sets that I can remember from the 80’s was the Pete Rose tribute set that Topps put out in 1986. They had all of his base cards in a six card set. Of course I had to try and re-create this set. I was going to use some cards of Paul Konerko that I had made. To get that going though I would have to creat a couple of new ones to start. Instead I thought about how cool it would be to just make this set for my favorite player as a child, Carlton Fisk. I have only made the first card so far, but I like how it turned out. It might be a while, but I plan on finishing this small mini set. (more…)

1973 Topps – Gordon Beckham

Here is another card new to the site. I have wanted to do a 1973 Topps card, but it is difficult because you almost have to have a template for each position. I found a couple high res images online that I could work off of. I had one for second base and one for shortstop. I found a picture that I thought might fit this template so I went with the 2nd base card first. I will have to try a couple more of these. This is the year after all with the Fisk trophy card.
