merging my pictures and cards

DH

1975 Topps – Adam Dunn

I have not made many cards of Adam yet. Some of that may be due to the fact that he is not living up to expectations. That is not a knock on Adam. It would be hard to live up to the expectations that the fans put on him before the season started. He has fallen on rough times, and the fans are letting him hear it right now. So far he has handled everything very well. I would love to see him reach the concourse in right field where he pointed at the day he was announced at the stadium. (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 – Billy Nowlin

I am still trying to figure out exactly how I am going to do this. For most of the Midwest League players I am going to have two cards of them to make one. Do I release both of them at the same time? I really only release minor league cards on Mondays so it will take a while to get them all out at this rate. That being said it is a long off season. (more…)


1987 Topps – Billy Nowlin

We start off Minor League Monday with a card of one of the players that has already made his way into the Cove this season. Billy is a player who appears to have some talents at the plate. It is hard for me to judge as I only saw him play two games, but he has a great swing. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Travis Hafner

Travis was once on of the most feared hitters in the league and a fan favorite in Cleveland. From what I saw and heard on Opening Day he is not loved as much by the fans. Injuries have really made it hard for Travis to get anything going the last few seasons. (more…)


1989 Upper Deck – Jim Thome

I am sure that I will come up with a couple more over time, but for right now this is the last Thome card as a member of the White Sox. Looking at the picture I realized that if I could take more like this it would be real easy to take pictures for Upper Deck now. I have somehow taken a picture with almost all the logos covered up.

1977 Topps – Jim Thome

I am getting near the end of my cards that I have made of former Sox players. As I have said before I would like to get all of these out before the season starts so that I can concentrate on the players that are on the team. I think I have talked about how much I enjoyed watching Jim play while he was with the Sox before. As a lefty I always relate more to other lefties so it was nice to see one that could really hit the ball. (more…)
