Bobby Borchering

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…)

1985 Donruss – Bobby Borchering

Bobby was drafted one spot ahead of A.J. Pollock who was the previous card on Midwest League Monday. He did not come to the Silverhawks right away because he was just out of high school. He is being brought up slowly. He was a highly touted prospect out of high school though, and has shown flashes of what they want out of him. He will be battling another third baseman, Matt Davidson, his entire way up though. That is a good problem for an organization to have though. (more…)


1986 Fleer – Bobby Borchering and A.J. Pollock

My first 1986 Fleer card was not that good so I thought that I would try another one. What better attempt than to try a dual rookie card. This is how we were introduced to Jose Canseco as kids. This card features two up and coming players in the Diamondbacks farm system. They were both picked in the first round of the 2009 MLB draft going 16th and 17th. Bobby Borchering was taken 16th right out of high school, and A.J. Pollock was selected with the next pick out of Notre Dame. (more…)


Bobby Borchering

I am going to start off Midwest League Monday with a card of Bobby Borchering who the Diamondbacks took last season with the #16 overall pick in the MLB draft. Bobby is not progressing as fast as they would like I would think. He has gotten into a few funks that have slowed his progress down a bit. He was not drafted #16 for nothing though, and he will be something else if he lives up to his potential. (more…)
