merging my pictures and cards

Harold Baines

2011 csd Custom – Lucas Harrell

Lucas was claimed off waivers from the White Sox earlier this week. Because I am not quick at these things it took this long for me to get his ’11 custom card on the site. I enjoyed the way that he interacted with the fans so I was sad to see him go. On the upside I may have to try and get a picture of him with his new team for the update set. (more…)

1985 Topps 25th Anniversary – Harold Baines

Since I am finally done with the preview set I thought that I would post a couple different kinds of cards to mix it up a bit on here. I thought that I would post one of my cards that I made in honor of my 25th baseball anniversary last season. It sounds kind of stupid, but it was a good idea for a subset I thought. (more…)

2011 csd Preview – Harold Baines

Since I am on the topic of first base coaches I might as well post my preview card of Harold. As a kid growing up I still remember the chants of ‘Harold’ that used to ring through old Comiskey. One of the highlights of the last decade was seeing Harold play again in a celebrity softball game at the Cell during All Star Weekend in 2003. The crowd chanted his name (although not as loudly as I remember it), and he obliged them by hitting a home run. He still had it in 2003. (more…)

1985 Topps – Harold Baines

This card has a couple of stories behind it. I originally made it as one of the few short prints I was going to make for this set. I just liked the idea of a couple different cards. As you have seen that really took off to much more than that. This picture was taken in 2009 at the Civil Rights game. I liked Harold in the different uniform so I thought I would put the picture on a card. (more…)

1977 #1 Draft Pick – Harold Baines

Since the 2010 Major League Baseball Draft is coming up soon I thought that I would do a countdown to the draft. What better way to do it than to use #1 draft cards similar to the ones used in the 1985 set? I only thought that I had seen a couple of guys who were picked overall #1 in person. When I pulled up a list I realized that I had seen a lot of the guys picked number one. Today we start the countdown with the earliest pick. In 1977 the White Sox picked Harold Baines #1, and picked a franchise player in the process. (more…)
