1985 Topps – Famous Lineage Sandy Alomar

85 topps famous lineage sandy and robby

Sandy has always been a favorite player of mine. That might be why I have included him twice in this set. I always liked the father and son set that Topps put out in 1985. I wanted to re-create it, but also to make it a little broader. With that in mind I was now able to make a card like this that showed Sandy next to his Hall of Fame brother Robby.  (more…)

1985 Topps Famous Lineage – Sandy Alomar Jr.

This is a card that I was excited to release. While coming up with a couple of extra cards for this father’s day celebration I wondered why I had not thought about using Sandy. He is a coach now, but his father did play Major League ball and so did Sandy. I always liked Sandy, and he just missed being in the ’85 set by a few years. Now in my mind he has completed his journey. (more…)


2011 csd Custom – Travis Hafner

I really did not get too many pictures of the Indians players on Opening Day. I was really concentrating on the White Sox. The sun ended up glaring right into my lens for most of the game so I really did not get too many good pictures. I could have moved almost anywhere else the other two days, but on Opening Day the park was packed. I did try and get a few players though when I could, and one of the was Travis Hafner. Travis was one of the most feared sluggers in the league not too long ago, and he would like to get back there soon. The Indians would like that as well. This is another card that I cheated on. Travis rarely plays first base, but I have him as a first baseman on the card. The term designated hitter takes up too much room, and just putting DH makes is look weird because it is too short. I have just started putting first base for the player to make it look better. (more…)


2011 csd Custom – Carlos Santana

As I said earlier tonight Carlos is a very exciting young player. I heard about him a lot on the site Bus Leagues Baseball, and from what I have seen so far he was worth the hype. As a good young catcher you know that I will have a few cards of him. He has already had a card in the short lived Opening Day set, and he makes his regular set debut with this card. (more…)


2011 csd Custom – Shin Soo Choo

Choo is one of the bright spots on the Indians. On the way home from the Opening Day game I was listening to their local sports radio. The fans really hated the team that was on the field with a couple of exceptions. Choo was one of those players. He really does have a cannon in right, and can hit the ball as well. (more…)


1987 Topps – Shin Soo Choo

As a fan of the opposing team in Cleveland one thing that annoyed me while at the game was the way the fans kept saying Chooo (as in Boooo) every time he touched the ball. Even if he made a routine catch they chanted his name. That being said he is a dynamic player that the fans can get excited about. I am sure that opposing fans thought the same thing of the Jose Jose Jose chants or the Magglio one they used to do on the South Side. (more…)


1987 Topps – Carlos Santana

I made a card for the Opening Day set for Carlos, but I thought the picture looked a little washed out. I wanted to try to make another card for the young catcher. Since I was making all my Indians cards with the ’87 Topps template I just decided to make one for him. I thought that it turned out okay, and it is on the back of my regular issue custom card.
