1982 Topps

1986 Topps – Carlton Fisk Tribute (1980-1982)

Here is yet another card in the mock Carlton Fisk tribute that I made up. This card might not have been made yet if not for the Gary Carter tribute set that I made upon learning of his death. It was with that set that I made the decision to leave out the All Star and other special cards in order to keep things running a little better. I did include the ’81 Topps traded card of Carlton though. He did play for the White Sox in ’81 so it had to be there. Where things would have started getting tricky was in 1982 with the In Action and All Star cards that Topps put out. I think that for now those were best left off of the card.  (more…)

1986 Topps – Gary Carter Tribute (1979-1982)

This is the second card that I have made for Gary today. I loved the way that Topps showcased their cards for Pete Rose in 1986. The design was simple, but really showed off their work. I made a couple of these for Carlton Fisk, but with the death of Gary Carter I felt that I had to make a few cards for him.  (more…)


1982 Topps In Action – Mark Buehrle

This is a card that I have had made for quite some time. I like how it looks for the most part, but was waiting to make a regular issue ’82 Topps card to release it. I have learned quite a bit since making the card, but I still like how it looks. The card will now see the light of day as part of the Mark Buehrle day on this blog today.  (more…)


1982 Topps – Carlos Quentin

I think that it is pretty cool that one of my favorite players on the White Sox shares the same birthday that I do. He is six years younger than me, but I like the fact that he and I celebrate on the same day. I made this card a while ago, but like some cards that I make they take a while to find there way onto this site. I thought today would be the perfect day to post this card. (more…)

1982 Topps – Scott Podsednik

Scott served two tours of duty with the White Sox. He was part of the deal that sent Carlos Lee to the Brewers before the 2005 season. At the time I couldn’t believe that the Sox had gotten rid of Carlos. Who was this little outfielder they got to replace him? Scott quickly endeared himself to Sox fans by stealing bases at a record pace. He injured himself before he could set any Sox stolen base records that season, but did help the team get off to a great start. After leaving the Sox for greener pastures he found himself on hard times. He signed a minor league deal in 2009, and quickly was helping the Sox again. (more…)
