merging my pictures and cards

Aramis Ramirez

1993 Donruss – Aramis Ramirez

I have had this card made for a while, but have not released it yet. Like most cards I make it came in a card making spurt, and if they don’t get posted right away I tend to forget about them. I want to post my new creations first. To me this card is cool because it represents the first year in many that I did not pick up any cards. I had so many other things going on that the hobby kind of fell away from me. I still don’t collect many actual cards, but getting to know the designs of the cards during the period that I did not collect (1993-2002) has actually been pretty fun. (more…)

2011 csd Preview – Aramis Ramirez

Since the Cubs convention is this weekend I thought that I would put out a few Cubs cards in this preview set. The first cards in the set is of Aramis Ramirez. Aramis has been with the Cubs since 2003 providing a solid bat from the hot corner. I took this picture of him last May as he was batting against Dan Haren and the Diamondbacks. I liked the picture, but it did not fit the 1985 Topps mold I was using last season. Instead of this one I used the next frame where Ramirez was a little more compact. As you can see not much different with the Cubs design. I went with the alternate logo because I liked it a little more on the card. (more…)

Aramis Ramirez

Aramis was just taken off the disabled list after spending some time rehabbing and injured thumb. He was already having a rough season, and the injury just added another bump in the road. Aramis has provided a great bat since he was brought to the club in 2003. He is a fan favorite, and the fans will be cheering him on as he tries to salvage this season. (more…)
