Paul Konerko

1977 Topps – Paul Konerko

Just to show that I have not lost my marbles and become a Cub fan I thought that I would post a card of Paul Konerko to round out the night. I have posted more cards of Paul than any other player. That is fitting because I have seen Paul play more than any other player in person. He is one of my favorites so I am sure that there will be many more cards of his to come in the future. (more…)

1966 Topps – Paul Konerko

Last year I was focused on making a set based on the ’85 Topps set. I started just for fun making a card of Gordon Beckham. Then I decided to make a set of the White Sox players. From there it branched out to making a set of ’85 Topps cards with players from all teams that I have seen. A natural next step in that was to branch out to other sets. This ’66 Topps Paul Konerko card was an early attempt at that. As I have said before I am making new templates that are easier to use so I am releasing some of these cards that have sat in a folder on my computer. (more…)


1970 Topps – Paul Konerko

Continuing the theme of getting some older cards on the blog I am posting this 1970 Topps card of Paul Konerko. I made this card with an old program, and I made it very hard on myself to make cards of different players. With some knowledge gained over the past year of making these cards I have come up with ways to make multiple cards fairly easy. Before I start on a new ’70 Topps template I thought I should release this card. (more…)


1964 Topps – Paul Konerko

I have four cards that have been sitting in my folder for some time. I have new templates for these cards so before I release any new cards with the new templates I feel I should post the cards that I made over the winter. I made a few cards of Paulie in a White Sox jersey this winter because I was not sure if he would be in that jersey this summer. Thankfully he is, but I have a few cards of him that I need to release. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Paul Konerko

After a great campaign by the White Sox it was announced tonight that Paul Konerko was voted into the All Star game by the fans. It is great that Paul was voted in, but I really don’t think that it should have come down to that. Since the start of last season on one player has had better numbers than Paulie. I am glad that the people made the right choice, and put him in the game. (more…)


1976 Topps – Paul Konerko

I really wanted to make this card of Paulie. 1976 is his birth year, and I loved the card that Steve at White Sox Cards made for him. I couldn’t find a template to make though. Then it dawned on me that the obvious template was Steve’s Konerko card. I stole the image from his site, and cropped the card to put my picture on it. Paulie hit a two run dinger in the first inning tonight to give the Sox a 3-0 lead in the first so I thought now was the time to put this card out. (more…)


1983 Topps – Paul Konerko/Carlton Fisk

Watching the Sox game tonight I saw Paul Konerko hit a home run over the Green Monster to give the White Sox a 3-1 lead over the Red Sox. The home run was important because it was the 376th of Paulie’s career. That tied him with Carlton Fisk for 66th all time. This is important to me because two of my favorite players of all time are now linked for what I hope is a very short period. The event inspired me to make my first card in quite some time. I thought that I would post it right away so that others could enjoy it. I posted the card as a 1983 Topps because I just basically tweaked my ’83 Topps Super Veteran template to make the card.
