2013 Topps – Jose Contreras


Here is another of the 2013 Topps cards that I have been playing around with. This whole site started with me just tinkering with an idea. It quickly blew up into the 2010 custom set which was modeled after the 1985 Topps set. This 2013 idea started off much the same. It started with me messing around with the template for a project for some of the high school kids that I photograph. It then turned into what will probably become another set. Once you get the hang of editing the cards into templates it becomes very easy. When the teams have a similar color it becomes even easier. (more…)

1985 Topps Famous Lineage – Ivan DeJesus

85 topps famous lineage ivan dejesus

One of my favorite parts of this blog used to be the famous lineage cards that I came up with. It was a hat tip to the Father-Son cards that Topps put out in 1985. I expanded the notion a bit so that I could include other relation.I loved the idea of seeing the kids of the players that I grew up watching on the diamond. Sometimes though it would be a nephew or grandson playing. I wanted to show them all. When I saw Ivan DeJesus warming up for the Indianapolis Indians Tuesday I knew that I would be reviving this small set.  (more…)

1964 Topps – Jose Contreras

64 topps jose contreras

This card of Jose is the first new card that I have made in quite sometime. I saw Jose pitch yesterday for the Indianapolis Indians, and I knew that I had to make a card of him. He was a great pitcher for the White Sox in 2005 helping them win the World Series. I thought that I would give him a little love by making this card of him. He already has a few cards on this blog so he is no stranger to it.  (more…)

1964 Topps – Pedro Alvarez

Pedro was one of the top prospects in the Pirates organization a couple of years ago. I was trying to get to see him while he was in Indianapolis, but he moved to the big club too quick for me to see him there. That is why I was happy last summer when he played a few games in Indy on a rehab assignment. The crowd was happy to see him as well. (more…)

2011 csd Custom – Alex Presley

It has been a while since I posted a card from my ’11 custom set. It is not for lack of cards, but for some reason I have been focused on newer cards. Don’t worry though this site will end up with plenty of them before it is all said and done. I thought that since right about now the Indianapolis Indians game I am at should be starting I would put out my first Indians card of the 2011 set. (more…)

1964 Topps – Alex Presley

All season long I have been reading the Twitter and Facebook feeds of the Indianapolis Indians. It seems like every game comes down to Alex Presley doing something for his team. I saw him play in person Saturday night, and he is already going to be called up to the Pirates for tomorrow nights game. I chose the 1964 Topps template for the Indy Indians cards because I liked how a little tweaking to the classic set made it look very cool. (more…)

Neil Cotts


Akinori Iwamura

One of the coolest parts of attending a Saturday game at Victory Field is the fact that you can meet the players prior to the game and get their autograph. I thought I would use this card to capture a bit of that on this site. (more…)

Andrew McCutchen – SP

Andrew was the 11th overall pick in the 2005 draft. He was signed to play college ball at Florida, but changed his mind after going in the first round. He rose up the ladder in the minors to the point that he became one of their top prospects. When Nate McLouth was traded to Pittsburgh a spot opened up for Andrew in the Pirates outfield. He has not looked back, and he is one of the more exciting players in the league. (more…)

Neil Walker – Famous Lineage

Earlier today I posted a card of Neil Walker who has just been called up by the Pirates. Here is his famous lineage card which shows Neil and his father Tom. Tom Walker played in the Majors from 1972-1977 for four teams. He played for the Expos (twice), Angels, Tigers, and Cardinals. He played the bulk of his time in Montreal going 14-13 with 3.57 ERA in 144 games. (more…)
