2011 Baseball Custom (Preview)

2011 csd Preview – Brennan Boesch

Brennan came up to the Tigers last April because of an injury, and never looked back. He hit a double off the first pitch he ever saw in the majors. He kept it going to become the rookie of the month in May and June. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Brad Lidge

Brad has gone from being the Big East player of the year while at Notre Dame to getting the last out in the 2008 World Series as the Phillies closer. He is a veteran closer that now has over 200 saves. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – A.J. Burnett

A.J. is someone that I may have had a misconception about before this post. I thought that he was always on the DL, but looking at his stats I can see that is not always the case. I guess his missing the 2003 has just stuck in my mind for some reason. He is a very good pitcher that continues to baffle hitters in New York. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Tyler Colvin

Tyler is a young Cub with a lot of promise. As a Sox fan I could not figure out last season why he was not getting more playing time. I know that I am not supposed to have favorite players on the Cubs, but I really enjoy watching Tyler play the game. Maybe he can fill in for Paulie once he retires. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Gaby Sanchez

Gaby Sanchez was a hot rookie last season. The Marlins had a couple on their team, but I did not know too much about them when I saw them play last May. I was at the game more to see my White Sox play. When Gaby was announced as a member of the Topps All Star Rookie team I decided to put him in this set. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Jeff Manship

Jeff was one of three very good pitchers on the 2006 Notre Dame staff. Tom Thornton was one of them who now pitches in Independant ball. His other counterpart Jeff Samardzija now is a relief pitcher for the Cubs. Manship has been trying to make his way onto the Twins roster for the last couple of seasons. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Kyle Gaedele

I don’t have too many college cards in this set. One of them had to be Kyle Gaedele though. Kyle is the great grandnephew of Eddie Gaedel the famous midget who walked on four pitches in his only at bat for the St. Louis Browns in 1951. Kyle could be a curiosity piece because of his name, but he is a damn good ballplayer as well. I have only seen limited games that the Crusaders have played, but he has played outfield, third base, and even pitched for them. He did all of them well I might add as well. (more…)
