merging my pictures and cards

Atlanta Braves

1985 Topps Famous Lineage – Colby and Cory Rasmus

85 topps famous lineage cory and colby rasmus

Since I posted the single card of Cory earlier today I thought that I would post this famous lineage card that I made for Cory and his brother Colby. Since this is my idea I used a card of Colby that I made in 2010 for my first (more…)


1990 Upper Deck – Cory Rasmus

90 upper deck cory rasmus

Cory is the younger brother of Blue Jays slugger Colby Rasmus. I was getting some shots of the stadium in the upper deck when he was called into the game. I knew that he was one of the players that I had identified before the game that I wanted to get. I worked my way down to the main level to get a good angle on him. I snapped a couple of quick pictures to make sure I had something, and then moved to where I wanted to be. I was able to snap one picture before (more…)

1990 Upper Deck – Daniel Rodriguez

I was having a little fun this morning putting a couple of my newer images onto baseball cards. I didn’t want to spend too much time doing it though so I tried to keep the same card for the same team. For the Gwinnett Braves I used the 1990 Upper Deck card. I only made a couple of these, but I kind of liked them so I thought that I would share them with you today. (more…)

2011 csd All Star Glossy – Chipper Jones

Chipper was selected to his 7th all star game this year, but will not play because of an injury. I have always enjoyed watching Chipper play throughout his career. I would like to see him get a run going of time played without an injury. You can see that he wants to go out playing well, and his body is just not letting him. (more…)

2011 csd Preview – Chipper Jones

I posted the previous card of Brian McCann because he knocked in the first run of the season. Who was the player that he knocked in? It was none other than Chipper Jones. Chipper hit a double in his first at bat of the season to set up McCann to knock him in. (more…)

2011 csd Preview – Brian McCann

Sitting here watching some baseball at lunch I saw that Brian MCann has driven in the first run of the season. Since I have yet to release his 2011 preview card I thought I would do it now. He is an All Star catcher who really is one of the best in baseball. With that RBI in his first at bat he gets off to a solid start. (more…)

2011 csd Preview – Martin Prado

Not often do you see a player have an all star season, and then get switched to an entirely different position. Martin is being switched to the outfield this season after the Braves signed Dan Uggla this past off season. The Braves lineup really looks good if everyone performs to their ability. (more…)

2011 csd Preview – Tommy Hanson

Tommy was once regarded as the top prospect in the Braves organization before Jason Heyward was. In 2009 has was a top prospect. Now he is trying to establish himself in the majors. Looking through his bio I was surprised to see that he gave up a home run to Ryan Braun for the first hit off of him. (more…)

2011 csd Preview – Tim Hudson

Here is yet another reason why I like the design of this set. I can turn the picture without losing anything on the card. When I made my set based on the 1985 Topps set last year I was limited to what pictures I could use. This year I can add a few more. I liked this picture of Tim for the set, but it would have looked awkward last season. (more…)

2011 csd Preview – Jason Heyward

Jason is one player that many people will be watching this season. After a very good rookie season he will be expected to do the same again this year. He came into the league with a lot of fanfare being ranked as the #1 overall prospect before the season started. Hitting a home run in your first at bat will do nothing but raise those expectations. (more…)

1989 Upper Deck – Jason Heyward

What player could have rivaled Griffey in hype since his 1989 rookie card? I was have to say Jason Heyward would be up there. Strasburg had the hype, but was hurt too quickly for it to build. Heyward started strong, made the all star team, and then helped his team make the playoffs. He was listed as the #1 prospect in baseball prior to the season, and showed us why. (more…)

1988 Donruss – Jason Heyward

The final ’88 Donruss card of the day is of the J-Hey-Kid Jason Heyward. I don’t know that any rookie had the hype that Jason had last season. He was the #1 prospect coming into the season. He backed that up by hitting a 475 ft. home run in his first at bat off Cubs ace Carlos Zambrano. He was elected to the All Star game as a rookie, and really had a fine season. (more…)

Brian McCann – All Star

Brian was the hero of last night’s All Star game. His two out double in the seventh off of Matt Thornton plated three runs, and gave the National League their first All Star game since 1996. The National League won the game 3-1, and McCann was named the All Star game MVP. (more…)

Tim Hudson – All Star

Tim is one of the better pitchers right now in the National League. His All Star selection is no fluke. He is the ace of the Braves staff that always has a great pitching staff. (more…)

Martin Prado – All Star

Martin is one of the best second basemen in the National League right now. He started tonight’s All Star Game at second base after Chase Utley pulled out. I am sure that he will be back in the midsummer classic many times before he is done. (more…)

Tommy Hansen

Tommy was the top prospect in the Braves organization going into last season. He was called up last season in June to take the roster spot of Tom Glavine who had been cut. He is a valuable arm on a team that is known for having great arms. (more…)

Jason Heyward

Jason is one of the top prospects in all of baseball. Can you even call him a prospect at this point? Going into the season he was considered the #1 prospect in baseball by many organizations. He made the Braves club out of spring training, and hit a three run home run in his first ever Major League at bat. Talk about raising already high expectations. He was named the rookie of the month for both April and May. He is on his way to being a superstar. (more…)

Brian McCann

With me going to the Sox game tonight I thought that I would post a Braves card. Brian is one of the better catchers in the National League, and I would have tried to get him in this set anyway. (more…)

Hank Aaron – SP

Two straight Hall of Famers that I saw in person at the Civil Rights game. With the Sox starting a series with the Braves tonight, and the Civil Rights game just over a year old I thought it would be a good time to get the card on the site. This is the fourth card today that is related to the Civil Rights game. I was thrilled to see Hank in person, and his card will make the set that much greater. (more…)
