1985 Topps Famous Lineage – Dan Dierking

I really don’t know how I missed this one for so long. I enjoyed watching Dan play for the Boilers for four years. At first we just enjoyed watching him on the kickoff team seemingly making every tackle. Because of injuries his senior year he had a much bigger role on offense. Of course then the injury bug hit him, and I don’t think he was running on all cylinders as the season ended. Of course who is? He was still fun to watch play, and makes a great addition to the Famous Lineage set. (more…)


1985 Topps (Box Bottom) – Dan Dierking

I had this template for the ’85 Topps football card and thought that I would try and make one of the very red box bottom cards. Maybe I am just over nostalgic, but I like this card as well. It is very red, but does show off the card very well. I don’t know that I will make too many of these, but I might make a couple more of them. (more…)


1985 Topps – Dan Dierking

I made a half-hearted attempt at this card last year before I knew my way around Photoshop. I thought that I would try and update the card to how I remember it. I really like how this card looks, and I may even try a couple with baseball players on them. This is a classic simple design, but for some reason I really like it. I chose Dan Dierking to kick off this set because I really enjoyed watching him play for four years at Purdue. With a little size he would have been a monster. His reckless abandon on kickoff team was fun to watch. (more…)

Dan Dierking

Since football is right around the corner I thought that I would do a preview set featuring some Boilermakers and a few other football players that I like to watch. I have an idea for a football card design, but for now enjoy the preview set. The first of those is Dan Dierking. Dan is one of those guys that you have to love if he is on your team. He scored a touchdown on his first ever play from scrimmage in mop up time as a freshman. For the past three years he has also been a beast on kick off teams. For some reason he is always around the ball carrier. (more…)
