This is a card that I have had made for a long time. There have been cards just sitting in a folder waiting to be made with little hope of getting published. These A’s cards were in a folder because I was going to release them with the 2011 csd custom cards that I was making. When my interest in making the cards died so did the cards that were going to end up on the backs. It is now time to release some of these cards so that they can finally leave the folder. (more…)
Kevin is a player that I liked very early on. In 2003 I met him at the Futures game at U.S. Cellular Field. He was very nice, and signed a ball for me. Even as a White Sox fan I was always a Youkilis supporter. It was nice last year to see him play for the White Sox even if it was only for a short time. (more…)
In order to get some of these cards out there I am going to post a few of these 1977 Topps Royals cards that I made a while back.
Pedro was one of the top prospects in the Pirates organization a couple of years ago. I was trying to get to see him while he was in Indianapolis, but he moved to the big club too quick for me to see him there. That is why I was happy last summer when he played a few games in Indy on a rehab assignment. The crowd was happy to see him as well. (more…)
Dustin was a fun player to photograph last spring. I had watched him play football for my hometown team, but had not seen him play baseball yet. I am a Purdue fan, but I did root for Dustin (who plays for the hated Hoosiers) when he came to bat. I was lucky enough to see a couple games that weekend so Dustin has had a few cards made from them. (more…)
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…)
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…)
