merging my pictures and cards

2011 Baseball Custom

2011 csd All Star Glossy – Miguel Cabrera

Since he came into the league with the Marlins Miguel Cabrera has been a force. He is now playing in what should be another post season after helping Detroit claim what you would guess in the Central. Both the Indians and Sox are so far back that it would take a monumental collapse by Detroit for either team to have a shot. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Jhonny Peralta

Since I have pretty much conceded the season to the Tigers now I thought that the next couple of cards should feature them. Jhonny was a late season pick up last year, and he has helped them to the Division title this season. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Michael Pineda

I first heard of Michael when he went up against the White Sox early this season. He had a good game, but most people do when they face the Sox for the first time. He did have good games against other teams though, and was selected to the All Star game. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Matt Holliday

Since I had some fun releasing my Midwest League All Star cards yesterday I thought that I would release a few of my MLB All Star glossies today. I thought that I would start it off with this card of Matt Holliday. For some reason I really like this card, and I think that is part of the problem of why some of these have not been released yet. I wanted to do it right. At some point though I just have to get them out there. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Zach Walters

The Silverhawks ended their season today with a win so I thought that the last card of the day should be of a Silverhawk player. Zach is a guy who started off strong. Sadly I moved before the end of the season so I really have lost touch with this team. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Jake Blackwood

Jake is yet another player that had a great game when I saw him play, and then went on to make the Midwest League All Star game. He came up just short of the cycle, and led Fort Wayne to the victory in game one of a doubleheader. He really had a great game, but could not back it up in the nightcap. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Rob Brantly

Here is yet another All Star Glossy card featuring a Midwest League All Star. I saw Rob play very early this season in South Bend. For some reason I have seen many West Michigan Whitecaps games. That day I added two more as rain allowed me to see a doubleheader. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Hernan Perez

Today I decided to get some of my creations on this site since I have been without internet for so long. I really need to get some of my 2011 creations out there before 2012 gets here. Perez is another player who had a good game against the Silverhawks that used that as a springboard to an All Star selection. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Matt Jackson

As I have said on this blog a couple of times I went to a doubleheader in South Bend to watch one player for the Tincaps when Matt Jackson had the great start. Matt really dealt the game I saw him pitch, and apparently he kept it going throughout the first half to earn his All Star selection. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Greg Rohan

Greg is a player who made the Midwest League All Star team this season during his second year with the Peoria Chiefs. I love how the Midwest League All Star logo looks on this card, and I wish that I had seen a few more teams play this season so that I could have expanded this set a bit. A move further away from the Silverhawks made that hard to do. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Jose Reyes

I thought that it was time to post a couple of my All Star cards again. Jose is a player that seems to be on this team every year. He is an exciting shortstop that does pretty well in the bright lights of New York. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Ryan Braun

Ryan is a very good baseball player that would probably be a much bigger star if he played in a big market. He is a player that is exciting to watch, and it was good to see him get the recognition of being in the All Star game. (more…)


2011 csd Custom – Chad Pierce

This is the third card of Chad that I have featured on this blog. I made up an ’86 Topps card for the back of this card and when he was drafted tweaked this cards design a bit for a draft card for him. This will be the final card of Chad in a Milwaukee uniform. I hope that I can see him down the road professionally to get some more pictures of him. (more…)


2011 csd Custom Traded – Louis Ott

Louis is the first player to get a traded card in my set. He actually had the card very early in the season. I had a picture of him from an exhibition game playing for the Gary Railcats. He was traded shortly afterwards to Winnipeg. I had a feeling that he would be the first player in the traded set. (more…)


2011 csd Custom – Price Kendall

Price was going to be in this set anyway because of his name. I looked him up, but could not find any info on him. I know that I saw him play somewhere before, but cannot place where that was. I love the unique name though so he was going to be in the set. (more…)


2011 csd Custom – Chris Salamida

Chris started the lone game I saw the Winnipeg Goldeyes play this season. I don’t know that I would normally have put him in the set, but I remember being impressed with him. (more…)


2011 csd Custom – Luis Allen

Luis is another Winnipeg Goldeye that I saw play in Gary earlier in the season. He was the catcher so it made sense that he would get a card in the set. I think that I have at least one catcher from every team that I have seen play this season (more…)


2011 csd Custom – Wes Long

Wes was a player that was probably not going to make this site. I had never heard of him before, and he was playing for a team in the American Association. I was lucky enough to snap a couple cool pictures of him so he made this set. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Starlin Castro

I really don’t have near enough Cubs cards for the amount of pictures I have for the team. I am sure that this is something that will change over the winter. One player that I enjoy making cards of is Starlin Castro. He is really an up and comer that I think is just scratching the surface of what he can do. If that is true then Cubs fans have something special to watch over the next few years. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Derek Jeter

Over the last few days nobody has dominated the national scene over his not being at the All Star game like Derek Jeter has. Maybe part of the reason is the fact that he is getting a $500,000 bonus for making the All Star game, but he cannot even show up to tip his cap. I am divided on the issue. I know that he was recently injured and then had a milestone that he just reached. He deserves some time off. On the other hand I found out how much he was making for being named to the team, and I started to change my mind. What does it say about the athletes of today when $500,000 isn’t even enough to show up for the All Star game? I think this year’s no shows will prompt a change much like the tie in 2002 did. We will see over time though. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Prince Fielder

I had a club ride tonight with some fellow bikers so I missed the start of the All Star game. I tuned in just in time to see Prince Fielder jack a three run home run to put the National League ahead 3-1. I always root for the American League in these games, but this year I don’t think homefield advantage in the World Series will effect my White Sox. I hope that I am very wrong about that statement. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Chipper Jones

Chipper was selected to his 7th all star game this year, but will not play because of an injury. I have always enjoyed watching Chipper play throughout his career. I would like to see him get a run going of time played without an injury. You can see that he wants to go out playing well, and his body is just not letting him. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Jose Valverde

Jose was picked to represent Detroit at the All Star game tonight in Arizona. He is a hard throwing righty for the Tigers. As I have said before I am releasing a bunch of my fake all star cards today because of the game tonight. (more…)


2011 All Star Glossy – Yadier Molina

Yadier is part of a very good catching crop produced by his parents. He has solidified the position for the Cardinals for some time now. He makes the All Star team as a reserve this season. This will make the third All Star game that he has been selected for. (more…)
