1988 Score – Juan Pierre

This is the last card of Juan Pierre that I made with an old school template. I enjoyed making the ’88 Score cards, and it was my first if not the first template that I made from scratch after the initial ’85 Topps template. For some reason I always thought that this even looked like it could have been in that initial score set.  (more…)

1988 Score – Gavin Floyd

I made this Score set a while ago and I need to post the rest of the cards that I made so that when I make my new template I don’t have any of these left. Since I will be at the Sox game tonight with Gavin on the mound I thought that it would be a great opportunity to get this card out there. (more…)

1988 Score – Jose Contreras

Here is yet another former Sox player on the ’88 Score card. I was never as big of  a fan of Jose as I should have been until he was sent down to Charlotte in 2009. I am a big Mark Buehrle fan so I was always upset that Jose was getting more of the prime starts than Mark. Of course Jose deserved them, but that doesn’t matter when you are a fan. I met Jose when he was playing for Charlotte, and he actually initiated the conversation. He pointed at my ball and asked me if I wanted his autograph. I had me back to him initially, but he must have assumed we were all waiting for him. He was so cool that I hoped he would make it back up to the big club soon. (more…)

1988 Score – Jermaine Dye

This was one of my first cards that I made. I looked at the card and thought that it would be simple for me to make from scratch. I was right, and so I made a few of them. I am still trying to get through them all before I move on to making them with my new photoshop program. (more…)

1988 Score – Bobby Jenks

I have not been too high on Bobby lately so I have been holding off on releasing his cards. If I want to get rid of all the former Sox players though I had better release them. I love this ’88 Score set so I made my own templates for each color. Thankfully it was very easy to do with my limited skills. (more…)

1988 Score – Andrew Sisco

In 2007 Andrew was a promising young arm in the White Sox pen. I immediately liked him because he was from my favorite ski town of Steamboat Springs. That is also where my brother met his wife. He was a 6’10” fireballer who made the team out of spring training. He came to the Sox for Ross Gload, but never seemed to get it going, and was released after an injury. He is currently in the Yankees organization trying to make it back to the bigs. (more…)

1988 Score – Willy Taveras

Yet another picture from the Civil Rights game. Because of the uniforms that both teams had on I took about as many pictures as I do now that I know I will be making cards out of them.  I liked the ’88 Score design so much that I made my own cards from scratch. Now that I have changed programs I don’t know what will become of these cards. I may have to just make some new templates to work from. (more…)

1988 Score – Alexei Ramirez

Saturation Sunday will close with this 1988 Score replica card of Alexei Ramirez. When he first came to the White Sox I had never heard of him. He had a great spring in 2008 making the team. He struggled out of the gate, but then performed to the level that had him in the Rookie of the Year talk. He is one of my favorite players because of the passion that he plays the game with. This picture is a little different. Alexei had a very weird stance watching the ball into the catchers glove. I don’t remember the exact circumstances, but I would almost bet it was a bunt attempt. No matter I love the picture, and think it looks good on the card. (more…)

1988 Score – Jerry Hairston Jr.

I found this picture last season while going through some older ones for the 2010 set. I was mad that I couldn’t use it because Jerry was no longer on the Reds. When I decided to just make some cards for fun no matter what team the player was on that opened the door for me to get it on a card. My first thought was the 1988 Score set, and when I centered the picture on the card it seemed to work. (more…)

1988 Score – Derrek Lee

Although he is no longer a member of the Cubs I thought that I would still put a few cards up of Lee while he was a Cub. I had a couple of good pictures that I thought would be perfect for a couple of card designs. This one seemed to fit the ’88 Score model perfectly. It seemed as if they had about seven kinds of photos that they put on a card. That is not a scientific number at all. It is just me going off of my memory. You have to remember that I take pictures because I have a bad memory. So take my statements lightly. This just looked like a Score picture to me. I really like how this card turned up. I don’t think that I could have taken an actual card and made it look better than my photoshop version. (more…)

1988 Score -Mark Teahen

1988 Score Mark Teahen

Here is another of the 1988 Score cards that I made. The original concept of this retro card deal was not to make any current cards with these guys on them. Of course they already have those cards so why bother? I wanted to make cards of current players that reflected the cards that I grew up collecting. In 1988 a new company started making cards. That was of course Score. It would be one year before Upper Deck came along and changed everything. I liked these cards because they were a little different. Pictures like the above one were unlike other cards. For some reason Score really like the shot that made the bat look huge. I tried to re-create that on a couple of these cards. (more…)

1988 Score – Brent Morel

I was having fun making rookie cards, and thought I would try the 1988 Score Prospects card. What better player to put on the card than Brent Morel? With most of the older cards I have doctored the actual card for this site. For the 1988 Score set though I made all the cards from scratch. This one was kind of easy and hard at the same time. The design is simple, but getting all the parts right was hard. (more…)

1988 Score – Juan Uribe
