Ball State Cardinals

2013 Topps – Clay Manering


I have been thinking about a project for a little while to use the current Topps template for some of the pictures that I have taken this spring. I figure to take many pictures up until the end of summer so I thought I would make another custom set. My Photoshop skills have really started to deteriorate as I don’t use the program very often. This is a great way to get me back into using the program as well as a great way to show some of the pictures that I really liked from the season.  (more…)

Ian Nielsen

This is the second collegiate player in the set that played his high school ball in my hometown of LaPorte, Indiana. Ian Nielson is a solid first baseman for the Ball State Cardinals. He started from day one at first, and was even named to the Louisville Slugger Freshman All American team as a freshman last season. Ian is the career home run leader at LaPorte High School along with holding numerous single season records. This is at a storied high school program. He is a player to keep an eye on for sure. (more…)
