1988 Donruss Diamond King – A.J. Pierzynski

88 donruss pierzynski dk

Here is a card that I made very early on in my card making process. At the time I did not think that A.J. would make it past the trading deadline at the time. He actually stayed a couple of years after that so this card really shows its age. I was just learning a few things, and this card is very rough. I like the idea though so it makes the site. If anything it just shows how far I have come.  (more…)

1988 Donruss – A.J. Pierzynski

88 donruss pierzynskiI made this card a couple of years ago thinking that A.J. had played his last game for the White Sox. I went through my images and plucked out some of the catcher that I liked, and that would fit on specific cards. For some reason this picture was just screaming ’88 Donruss. This just seemed like a shot that I would have seen on that card. (more…)


1984 Topps – A.J. Pierzynski

I had made this card a long time ago with some other Sox players. This was the first card type that I owned. It has probably been said many times on here, but I picked up my first baseball card ever in a trade for a french fry. It was a battered ’84 Topps Vance Law. I still have that card somewhere, and for that reason I always will enjoy this set.  (more…)


1987 Fleer – Pierzynski and Sale

In late 2010 I attended the White Sox game against the Tigers in Detroit. In the bottom of the ninth Sale gave up what appeared to be the game winning home run to Brandon Inge. The ball was ruled fair on the field, but was clearly foul. Thanks to replay the call was overturned and the White Sox had another chance. Sale struck out Inge, and pitched a great tenth to earn his first Major League win. I have the lineup card from the Tigers dugout that I bought prior to the game. After Sale earned the win I was stoked that it was mine. I made this card right after the win, but for some reason never released it.  (more…)


1987 Fleer – A.J. Pierzynski

This is one of the cards I made just after last season when I thought that A.J. would not be back with the Sox. I wanted to have his cards on here for a couple of days since he is one of my favorite Sox players. I wanted to use this template because it is still one of my favorites from my childhood. I like how the card looks, and look forward to updating this template so that it looks a little better. (more…)


1986 Topps – A.J. Pierzynski

This will be the final ’86 Topps card tonight. It is also one of the oldest that I have made. I made this last October as part of a mini set of A.J. cards in case he did not come back to the Sox. I really thought that he would be gone for sure. If Tyler Flowers (who had a card a couple of posts ago) had played a little better I think that A.J. would have been gone. Thankfully though he was brought back to the Sox. (more…)


1981 Donruss – A.J. Pierzynski

I thought I would keep up the trend of new cards with this one of A.J. I had not even thought about doing a 1981 Donruss card until last night. As I was watching MLB Network I was thinking about how these cards were made 30 years ago. I thought that I would give it a try. After having some success cropping around the White Sox name on the ’78 Topps card I thought that this wouldn’t be too bad. The only thing that I don’t like about the design is my logo in the corner. I wanted to stay with the script look that I have been using, but it doesn’t seem to fit the card. (more…)
