merging my pictures and cards

Joliet Jackhammers

1987 Topps – Brad Mumma

Tonight I thought that I would finish up this small spree of local players with Brad Mumma. Brad made it the farthest of any former Slicer that I have seen in person. He spent time with the Double A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays. I took this picture a couple of years ago as Brad was pitching for the Joliet Jackhammers.  (more…)


1975 Topps – Brad Mumma

Are you sick of the ’75 Topps cards yet? I am not. I have had some fun coming up with a few different color variations with this card. I thought that I would include a hometown player in this set. Brad was a star player for the LaPorte High School baseball team before his pro career. He never made it above Double A, but it is still cool to see a local kid do well. (more…)


2011 Gypsy Queen – Brad Mumma

I enjoyed making a few cards with the Gypsy Queen template. I didn’t want to use players who could be in the set so I branched out to find some players who I thought would make interesting subjects for these cards. Brad Mumma was a local ballplayer who had a decent pro career. He never made the majors, but was a solid pitcher. He is from my hometown so he will have a few cards on this site. (more…)


1989 Upper Deck – Brad Mumma

Minor League Monday concludes with another card of local pitcher Brad Mumma. I had some good pictures of him so I thought I would make a couple of cards out of them. Brad was a guy who grew up in my hometown of LaPorte, IN before playing briefly in the Blue Jays organization. He closed out his career by pitching for the Joliet Jackhammers. (more…)


1985 Topps – Brad Mumma

Brad is a pitcher from my hometown of LaPorte, IN. He spent time in the Blue Jays organization, but ended up pitching for the Joliet Jackhammers in 2009. I was at a game he pitched against the Railcats and took a few pictures of the hometown boy. I used the template that I used to make the 25th anniversary White Sox set for this card. I know that it doesn’t look like the actual 1985 Topps card, but I really like how it looks. (more…)
