This is a card that I made for the back of my 2011 custom set that was kind of lost. I had great hopes for the set, but each card took way too much time for me to make. The idea of making a card to put on the back similar to the old Stadium Club cards just added to the work. That being said I made many of the cards without ever releasing them. This is one of those cards. They were not the best to look at, but since I took the time to make them I thought that I would release them here. I have always liked watching Dan pitch. The day that I saw him play in 2010 he really gave me a lot of good opportunities to take pictures of him. He already has a few cards on this site.

Chris is a player that I have followed for a while. He came up with the White Sox before being traded to the Diamondbacks. He had a good day on Opening Day yesterday for the D-Backs so I thought I would release this card of his that I made last season. (more…)
Russell is slugger for sure. He is not in the game for his defense. He is in the game to hit the longball. I made this card last summer to go on the back of my 2011 custom card. Part of the tough part about that card was that I had to make cards for the back. It was a long process that in the end made the set fail. I loved how it looked, but it took way too much time to make. (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…)
During his short time in South Bend Rossmel became one of my favorite Silverhawk players. It didn’t hurt that he was a catcher, but he really seemed to have fun playing the game. I would love to see him play for the Diamondbacks one of these days. (more…)
I have really been getting behind in posting my Silverhawks cards. For the last couple of years I had a Minor League Monday feature where it was the only day I would post Minor League cards. I have missed it the last couple of weeks so maybe I will just post cards whenever I want for a while to catch up. (more…)
I like this set, and thanks to the snowpocolypse I have many of them sitting in a folder waiting to be showcased on this site. Dan is no longer with the Diamondbacks, but he was their ace for a few years. He was part of the draw when I went to see Arizona at Wrigley last season. He is now with the Angels so he has not changed colors too much. (more…)
With the Sox playing at Arizona tonight I thought that I would release a couple cards of the D-Backs. Justin Upton is one of the players that I saw playing in A-ball for the local South Bend Silverhawks. He was the #1 pick of the 2006 draft so we knew that he had the potential to be very good. He has started to show that great potential in the Majors. (more…)
Ryan is a player that normally would not be on this site. I don’t know too much about him even though he is on the Diamondbacks. I saw him hit a home run live though so he will get this card as well as a card in the ’11 custom set. I love this ’87 Topps design so I have used it here and there for my cards that will go on the back of the custom set for this year. It is a simple design, but I think that it has held up well.
