South Bend Silverhawks

2011 csd All Star Glossy – Zach Walters

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…)

1987 Fleer – Rossmel Perez

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…)


1985 Fleer – Zach Walters

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…)


2011 Gypsy Queen – Bobby Borchering

I have yet to hold one of these cards in my hand, but I love what I have seen so far online. I have seen plenty of the actual cards along with a bunch of great customs by other bloggers. I decided to throw my hat into the ring and try and make a couple of these. I didn’t want make cards of players that are in the set so I decided to use some other players that I have seen over the last few years. The first of those is Bobby Borchering. Bobby was the 16th pick of the 2009 MLB Draft by the Arizona Diamondbacks. I was lucky enough to watch him play many games in South Bend last season. I thought that he would be a good first choice for this set. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Yazy Arbelo

I sat down and tried to come up with a cool design for my all star cards this season. Last year I just stole from the ’76, ’85, and ’86 Topps all star designs. I was determined to make a design that was my own. What happened was that I came up with a couple designs that I really want to keep for future custom cards. I stumbled across some all star glossy cards from the 80’s, and knew that I had stumbled across something. Instead of coming up with a new card I could just put out a glossy set. I used one of those cards for a template, and put the ’11 All Star logo on the bottom with the new date at the top. I really liked how these turned out. I would like to make more of these for the Midwest League as well as making them for the American Association and the MLB All Star game. This little sub set could grow to be fairly large before I am done. (more…)


1985 Fleer – Yazy Arbelo

I have a class A affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks just a few miles away from my house. I attend a few South Bend Silverhawks games every year, and it is a given that they will have some cards on this site. In order to make my 2011 custom cards I had to make some cards for the back. I liked how the ’85 Fleer cards were looking so I decided that the Silverhawks would use that Yazy gets the first card because he has stood out the most to me this season. He was just named to the Midwest League All Star team as a reward for his efforts. (more…)


2011 csd Custom – Bradin Hagens

The last card of Minor League Monday is the 2011 custom card of Bradin Hagens. Bradin was a member of the team last season so I thought I should get a card made of him right away. Bradin was a starter last season, but has worked out of the bullpen so far this season. (more…)
