1985 Topps Famous Lineage – Ivan DeJesus

85 topps famous lineage ivan dejesus

One of my favorite parts of this blog used to be the famous lineage cards that I came up with. It was a hat tip to the Father-Son cards that Topps put out in 1985. I expanded the notion a bit so that I could include other relation.I loved the idea of seeing the kids of the players that I grew up watching on the diamond. Sometimes though it would be a nephew or grandson playing. I wanted to show them all. When I saw Ivan DeJesus warming up for the Indianapolis Indians Tuesday I knew that I would be reviving this small set.  (more…)

1985 Fleer – Adam Kennedy

85 fleer adam kennedy

This is another card that was originally made to go on the back of my 2011 custom set that I made many cards for, but never really released. The sole purpose of the cards was to grace the back of my card that I made from scratch. It was a good idea, but as usual I made it into something much bigger than it should have been making it very hard to complete. Making backs with a blurb for each card was a great idea, but took a lot of time. (more…)


1988 Topps – Gordon Beckham

This was the first card that I made for this black White Sox template. For some reason Gordon has been the first guy for most of the templates. I guess since he was the first custom card that I made I keep going back to the well on that one. He was once thought of as a savior at second base for the White Sox. Now he is a very good ballplayer on this upcoming team. (more…)


1972 Topps – Gordon Beckham

I don’t know why it has taken me so long to put this card out. It was one that I made during last season. Sometimes for one reason or another a card just sits in a folder on my computer for no reason. I would like to try this ’72 design again so I need to get this card out there. (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…)


1975 Topps – Brandon Phillips

I was never too sure exactly what I thought of Brandon until I saw him play in 2009. As one of the bigger names on that Reds team you would have thought that he would have had a bigger head. Instead of hanging out in the clubhouse before the game he spent most of that time signing as many autographs as he could. That put him on my list of players to watch, and got him a couple of extra cards on this site. (more…)


Bronzed Heroes – Frank White

I have not posted any of my bronzed heroes cards in a while. I love the idea of the set, but I have been having fun making cards that I have not made before. I decided to post a few of these today after making several yesterday. I have a knack for taking pictures of statues when I visit a new place. This set is a way of putting these pictures to use.
