Since the Packers open up the post season tonight at home against Minnesota I thought that I would post some of the cards that I made as the Packers were gearing up for the Super Bowl a couple of years ago. I had a few images from my lone appearance at Lambeau Field in 2009. I had a great seat so I was able to get some shots that would not look bad on a card. (more…)

1986 Topps – Gary Carter Tribute (1975-1978)

This morning I woke up to hear the news that Gary Carter had passed. As a kid that grew up in the 80’s and followed catchers Gary was a fun player to watch. Sometimes I didn’t give him the credit he deserved because that would have taken some away from my favorite player Carlton Fisk. I practiced all of the catcher drills that Gary showed me on a Mickey Mantle instructional video as a kid. The only problem was that I was left handed and would never play catcher. I was sad to hear of his passing so I thought that I could start a tribute set for Gary much like the one that I created for Carlton a few months ago. (more…)


1986 Topps – Carlton Fisk Tribute (1976-1979)

Just before I quite making cards I had this great idea to make a set much like the one that Topps did for Pete Rose in 1986. They took all of his cards and put the in sets of four to have a career spanning set. This is the second card of that set spanning the years 1976-1979. From here I have some decisions to make concerning the cards. If I don’t put any of the special cards or all star cards on the cards it will work out very nice. In my opinion though those cards are very important. I want to place them on the cards as well. I also toyed with the idea of adding Fleer and Donruss into the mix initially, and then Upper Deck and the others later. Of course things would get very confusing late when all the companies jumped into the mix. For now I think that I will keep things to just Topps. Later I might add some cards with just Donruss or just Fleer. I will at least make the next card in this set before deciding how to proceed.  (more…)


1977 Topps – Melky Cabrera

This is the final Royals card for the night. I like this card for a couple of reasons. The first is that for some reason I love the card design that Topps put out in 1977. Another is the fact that you can see the special patch that Melky is wearing. For some reason the Royals cards looked pretty cool to me so I made plenty of them. I will release the rest of them at a later time, but for now enjoy this final card of the day. (more…)
