merging my pictures and cards

Juan Pierre

1971 Topps – Juan Pierre

Here is the second card that was promised this morning. This is the 1971 Topps card of Juan Pierre. I liked this card and the card of Starlin Castro that was just posted so much that I made the 1983 Fleer Super Star Special out of the same picture. I did not want to scrap these cards just because I used the picture again so I thought that I would post them. (more…)

1987 Donruss – Juan Pierre

Out of all the Donruss sets this one probably brings back the most memories. It was so hard to get these cards around here that we had to send away for wax boxes. Part of the fun of the set was opening up the packs with my father and seeing if I had any of the cards that I needed. By the end we just cheated and bought the complete set, but that was not as much fun. So I basically have almost two sets of Donruss. (more…)


1983 Fleer – Juan Pierre (Special)

Here is the other half of the Super Star Special Card I made. Like I said I had made two separate cards for the 1971 set out of the same picture. I then came up with the idea to put them together on a 1983 Fleer card to mirror the classic Speed and Power card featuring Rickey Henderson and Reggie Jackson. I liked how it turned out so I had it post first thing this morning so that I had it on the site. As with the other card the full card is shown after the jump. (more…)


1983 Fleer – Starlin Castro (Special)

One of the cards that I really enjoyed as a kid was the Speed and Power card of Rickey Henderson and Reggie Jackson. I saw card, but it was actually two cards that you put together to form one card. I had a cool picture of Juan Pierre stealing a base, and Starlin Castro holding up his mitt. I made two separate 1971 Topps cards out of that one picture. As the cards sat in my folder waiting to be released on this site I noticed how they almost could be put together. That is when I came up with the idea for this card. It was a little trickier than I thought it would be to get both sides to line up. My first attempt left me with a picture that was a little off. Using the grid function in my program though allowed me to do it with ease. After the jump I have included an image of the card as one piece. (more…)


1987 Topps – Juan Pierre

This card has a special meaning to me for a couple of reasons. One it is a cool 1987 Topps. I don’t already have a monster box full of these things so I need some more. I may have more of these than any other card. For some reason though I still like the card. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Juan Pierre

This was the first card that I tried to put on its side. I am still not sure how I feel about it. I like the fact that I can flip a card. A picture like this one of Juan would not have been usable, or would have looked weird on a regular card. I took this picture early in the season when the Sox were playing the Royals. Juan was diving back to the bag, and I happened to capture it with my camera. (more…)


Juan Pierre

Juan was one of the big acquisitions that Kenny Williams made this off season. Juan was tagged to play left field after the Sox decided not to re-sign Scott Podsednik. He started off slow, but has turned it around lately. It is no coincidence that the White Sox offense has come alive and the team has started winning some ballgames. He has played for five Major League teams, and I have seen him in the last four uniforms he has worn. (more…)
