Chris Sale

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…)

2011 csd Preview – Chris Sale

Last season I had no idea who Chris was when he was drafted by the Sox. By the time I met him while he was playing for Charlotte, and watching the inside the club show the MLB Network had on the Sox I had a much better idea of who Chris Sale was. I was still surprised at how well he pitched when he was called up to the show. The Sox are counting on him to do a lot more when the season starts this year. (more…)


1985 Donruss – Chris Sale

I figure that I had better get this rated rookie card of Chris out of the way. He will be pitching in his second season next year so I can start making regular cards of him. I was excited earlier in the season when Chris stepped up to throw in the White Sox bullpen. I had already met him in Indy while he was playing for Charlotte, and I hoped that he would get in the game. This kid can pitch, and he quickly let the club know that he was ready to go. (more…)

Chris Sale

Yesterday I saw the Charlotte Knights play the Indianapolis Indians in Indy. I went to see the Triple A affiliate of my favorite team play ball. It is pretty cool to see the young future of your team play. The first person that I was excited to see was Chris Sale. He was the #1 pick in this year’s draft by the White Sox (#13 overall). (more…)
