merging my pictures and cards

2011 Opening Day

2011 csd Custom Opening Day – Mark Buehrle

Now only a few months late is another of my Opening Day cards. I liked the idea of this set, but I had way too much going on to give it the attention that it deserved. So instead of it going out when it should have I think the cards will just trickle in as I continue to make them. (more…)

2011 csd Custom – Juan Pierre (Opening Day)

This was a concept that I was very gung ho about, but never really got it off the ground. I made a couple cards, but had a bunch of pictures sitting around ready to be used. I decided that some of those should be used for this set. I decided to make an Opening Day set with just pictures from Opening Day. I thought that I could expand that to the other leagues I see, but that would be a chore. (more…)


2011 csd Opening Day – Carlos Santana

I have heard about Santana for a while now thanks to Bus Leagues Baseball. At first the interest in the slugger was purely because he shares a name with the famous guitarist. Now I think it won’t be long before people recognize the Indians catcher before they would the rock icon. Carlos had a good game on Opening Day hitting his first home run of the season. I think that the home run he hit will have some company before the season is over. (more…)


2011 csd Opening Day – Gordon Beckham

I like the idea of this set. I took so many pictures yesterday that it would have been a shame to make all my Sox cards off the bat. This way I can have the fun of making Sox cards out of the gate knowing that I can make the regular issue card. Although nothing is really different from what I have already put out there in the preview set I like this card. The Opening Day logo looks good on the bottom of the card. (more…)


2011 csd Opening Day – Adam Dunn

One of the reasons I was so excited to go to the game yesterday was to see the debut of Adam Dunn. He was highly touted, and did not disappoint. He hit a bomb in the third inning that was a no-doubter off the bat. He is a power hitter that will have his share of strikouts, but he will also hit his fair share of home runs. He found the second deck in right field during batting practice yesterday after knocking a couple off the second deck facade. (more…)


2011 csd Opening Day – John Danks

Yesterday I was lucky enough to be in Cleveland to see the Sox open the season against the Indians. A while back I had decided to try an Opening Day mini set using only pictures taken on Opening Day. Of course I just thought that it would be the Sox Opening Day in Chicago. Here is the first of those cards. (more…)
