1985 Topps – Jake Means


1977 Topps – Joakim Soria

In order to get some of these cards out there I am going to post a few of these 1977 Topps Royals cards that I made a while back.

1977 Topps – Melky Cabrera

This is the final Royals card for the night. I like this card for a couple of reasons. The first is that for some reason I love the card design that Topps put out in 1977. Another is the fact that you can see the special patch that Melky is wearing. For some reason the Royals cards looked pretty cool to me so I made plenty of them. I will release the rest of them at a later time, but for now enjoy this final card of the day. (more…)


1977 Topps – Jeff Francis

When I saw the Royals play the White Sox on the Fourth of July Jeff was the starting pitcher. This is the same picture that I used for the previous card of Brayan Pena.  (more…)


1977 Topps – Brayan Pena

Here is yet another Royals card that was made for the backs of my 2011 custom cards. I really did not know who Brayan was at the time, but every catcher I saw made the set. This picture was taken on the Fourth of July as Pena was walking in from the bullpen with Jeff Francis. I used the other part of the same picture for Jeff’s ’77 Topps card. (more…)


1977 Topps – Billy Butler

I guess that I will post some of the Royals cards that I had made for the backs of my 2011 custom cards last season. I saw the Royals play the White Sox, and took a few pictures in order to make some cards. I put most of the Royals on a ’77 Topps card that I didn’t get around to releasing. (more…)


1975 Topps – Bruce Chen

Here is another color combination I came up with for the ’75 Topps tribute cards I have been making. This was a color combination that I am not too fond of, but for some reason I like how this card turned out. It has a very nice balance to it for some reason. (more…)


Bronzed Heroes – Frank White

I have not posted any of my bronzed heroes cards in a while. I love the idea of the set, but I have been having fun making cards that I have not made before. I decided to post a few of these today after making several yesterday. I have a knack for taking pictures of statues when I visit a new place. This set is a way of putting these pictures to use. (more…)


1987 Topps – Mike Aviles

Mike was a player that for some reason I got some pretty good pictures of last July. I moved around and ended up just behind the Royals dugout. I liked this picture, and made this card of Mike a while ago. As high as the bat was I thought that it could have been a ’88 Score card, but I like how this one turned out as well. (more…)


1977 Topps – Chris Getz

During his time with the White Sox I really learned to appreciate Chris Getz. He is not a flashy player, but he does get the job done. I was sad to see him go to the Royals, and looking back at what Mark Teahen has done for the Sox makes that trade even harder to stomach. The Sox needed to make room for Gordon Beckham though so the trade had to be done. (more…)


1975 Topps – Mike Moustakas

Mike just proves the age old theory that if you hit me a baseball while I am at a game I will make many cards with your picture on them. I thought that since Mike hit me a baseball I would give him some star treatment for a while on this site. I gave him the same colors as a great Kansas City third baseman’s rookie card. As a kid I loved George Brett, and his ’75 Topps card is stuck in my head. I pulled it up to make sure of the colors, and put them on this card. I thought it was only fair. (more…)


1988 Topps – Chris Getz

I have posted a few Royals cards over the last couple of days. For some reason I just love how their team colors look on a card. One of those that I loved as a kid was the 1988 Topps cards. I really have the Bo Jackson and George Brett cards stuck in my head. I thought that I would give the card a try tonight. (more…)


1984 Topps – Mike Moustakas

Mike may get a few cards on this site. He has a few things going for him. One of them is that he is a hot young prospect. The second is that he plays for the Royals. For some reason when I make a custom card of a Royals player I tend to like it. It must be something about their color scheme that I like. The third thing he has going for him is that he hit me a ball in batting practice. Any time a player gets me a souvenir I tend to make a few cards of him. For some reason I like this set. It may be due to the fact that it was the first set that I collected. I only had a few cards, but they were from this set. That might be why I try and make these cards as much as I can. (more…)


1977 Topps – Eric Hosmer

Part of making my 2011 custom set has been coming up with cards for my card backs. In order to make things a little easier I have now picked one set to feature for a team. For the Royals I picked the ’77 Topps set. The Royals have some young talent that I was exited to see. The two players in particular that I was excited about seeing for the first time both did things to impress me. Eric of course tied the game in the ninth inning with his home run to center field. (more…)


1977 Topps – Bruce Chen

After work today I turned on the Sox game to see Bruce Chen going against my guys. Last season I had fun watching both Bruce and Joakim Soria having fun in the outfield during batting practice. Part of the fun of going to the game on the Fourth was to see these two again. (more…)


1985 Topps Famous Lineage – Jason Kendall

Before making some cards for Father’s Day I had no idea that Jason’s father played in the bigs. I saw his name on the Baseball Almanac list so I knew that I had to make a card for him. I have always enjoyed watching Jason play so it was great to make this card for him. (more…)


1976 Topps – Mike Aviles

This is a card that I made a while ago, but for some reason it has just sat in a file. As I have said many times on this blog I had some great seats last July for a game with the Royals and the White Sox. I took way too many pictures that day so it is only natural that some of them would end up on some cards. (more…)


1985 Donruss – Christian Colon Rated Rookie

Over the winter I had made a few cards up of players that I have seen that are either rated high by the scouts, or that I really liked. I used an old ’85 Donruss template to make up my own rated rookie set. This is one of those cards that I made. I may bring this set back, but I will have to update the ’85 Donruss template first. I have one more card that I could release, but the player has already fallen off the map. That shows you what I know about players that are on their way up. (more…)


1984 Topps – Scott Podsednik

I have done a few Scotty Pods cards so far on this site. I think part of that is nostalgia for the ’05 Championship team, and the other part was that he came back with the Royals right when I started making cards for this site. I had a couple close up shots of his face so I decided to try a 1984 Topps card of him. (more…)


1987 Topps – Scott Podsednik

Here is yet another card of Scotty Pods. Last year I saw a few former Sox players when the Royals came to town. It seems as if the two teams have a knack for playing former players of the other teams. (more…)
