merging my pictures and cards

1984 Fleer

1984 Fleer – Kevin Kouzmanoff

Part of the fun of making this years set has been designing cards for the backs of my 2011 customs. If I made a card with the player on it in the past it will go on the custom. If not I have to make one up for the player. I have complained about making these cards, but it has been fun to recreate some of the cards of the past with teams other than the White Sox on them. For some reason I knew the A’s had to be on the ’84 Fleer card. I don’t know why, but I just thought they should be on this card. (more…)

1984 Fleer – Andy LaRoche

Andy has already been featured on this blog with a Famous Lineage card. His brother and father were also in last years set. With all of that on his side Andy had to be in this years custom set. In order to do that though I had to make a custom card for the back. I don’t know if I knew exactly what I was getting into when I started this. If I go to as many games this year as last year things will get very busy around here. (more…)

1984 Fleer – Cliff Pennington

Early on in my preview set I made the decision to use my own cards on the back of this year’s custom set. I was sick of looking up cards of players, and thought it would make things easier. It also would be a chance to show off some of my past cards. I must have been tired that night because I never factored new players into that equation. I figures the new players would be in A ball or college where cards of them would be hard to find anyway. One way that I made my job easier in making the cards for the back was to just make as many as I could at once with the same template. In the case of the A’s I made them with my new ’84 Fleer template. The other one was kind of rough so I decided to try it again. Early on this year I was back to making ’85 Topps cards for the backs. I made them last year for the entire set so I wanted to try something different. I may jump around a bit and try out new sets knowing that I am using the cards on the back of another. (more…)

1984 Fleer – A.J. Pierzynski

This is another card with a picture taken during the Labor Day game in Detroit. A.J. knocked in the winning run so he was of course the hero. As he was getting interviewed after the game I kept waiting for a shaving cream pie to come into play. It never did, but I did get this picture of A.J. during the interview. (more…)

1984 Fleer – Carlos Quentin

Here is another 1984 Fleer card. I made these from scratch as well, but as you can see by the design there is not too much to them. That being said I like the simple design, and how some of these pictures look on it. This would also be an easy design to change for other teams. (more…)

Paul Konerko – 1984 Fleer


Andruw Jones – 1984 Fleer

Here goes with my second attempt at a 1984 Fleer card. I thought that I would pick Andruw since he recently hit his 400th home run. He joins a select few in baseball, and the least I can do is make a card for the guy. (more…)

Alexei Ramirez – 1984 Fleer

This is the first 1984 Fleer card that I have attempted. The base card was fairly easy to make, but once again I had trouble finding a font that looked like the one used in 1984. I finally found two that at least made the card passable. I had these cool pictures of Alexei that I got at Wrigley a week ago that I wanted to put to use. The perfect way to do that was to make a couple of cards with him in them. As this posts I should be at the Sox game watching them take on the Braves. Let’s hope that he can continue his hot streak.
