1976 Topps

1976 Topps – Corky Miller

Corky will always be an interesting player to me because I saw him play for three different teams in one season. In 2009 he started the season with the White Sox. He was traded to the Reds for Norris Hopper. I then saw him play for both the Lousiville Bats (against the Sox farm team the Charlotte Knights), and the Reds. I have seen a few players on three or more teams, but never in the same season. (more…)

1976 Topps – A.J. Pierzynski

This is the first 1976 Topps card that I have made. This set is much like the 1973 set in the fact that you have to have a template for each position because of the small drawing on each card. This makes mass production very hard. I like the look of the card though so I may give a few more a shot. Making this process a little easier is the site Project Baseball 1976. He has a great database of high resolution cards on his site. While I was looking for the cards I was stuck reading the great writeups he has for each card. Be prepared to spend some time there. Another reason to make more of these cards is the fact that this is my birth year. That just so happens to be the same year that A.J. was born so this is a good first card for the set. (more…)
