merging my pictures and cards

1986 Topps – Kurt Suzuki

86 topps kurt suzuki

This is a card that I have had made for a long time. There have been cards just sitting in a folder waiting to be made with little hope of getting published. These A’s cards were in a folder because I was going to release them with the 2011 csd custom cards that I was making. When my interest in making the cards died so did the cards that were going to end up on the backs. It is now time to release some of these cards so that they can finally leave the folder.  (more…)

1984 Fleer – Kurt Suzuki

Kurt is a player that I have followed for a while now. I watched him on television when his Cal State Fullerton team made its run in 2004. I was in Omaha watching the day that they won the College World Series against Texas. For some reason this catcher made me take notice. If you have read this blog you know that the catcher is by far my favorite position. Kurt is one of the current crop of catchers that I enjoy watching. I took this picture early last season as he was warming up before facing the White Sox. (more…)

1984 Ralston Purina – Kurt Suzuki

As I have stated on this blog before Kurt has been a favorite of mine since the 2004 College World Series. He was really fun to watch as his team marched towards the title. I happened to be there the day his Cal State Fullerton team clinched it with a win against Texas. That was the only day I could attend the series, but it turned out to be a very good one. (more…)

1963 Topps – Kurt Suzuki

One of the only good things that came out of me going to the Sox game on Wednesday was being able to see Kurt Suzuki play again. In 2004 I watched his Cal State Fullerton team march through the College World Series. I was actually at the game when they clinched it against Texas. It was hard to cheer that day since I was right in the middle of the Texas families. It is hard to root against a team when you are sitting amongst the parents. It just seems too rude. I was glad to see Fullerton win though. Kurt went on to win the Johnny Bench Award for the nation’s top collegiate catcher that year. (more…)

Kurt Suzuki

I first heard of Kurt in 2004 when his Cal State Fullerton team was in the College World Series. I got to see his team win the title when they beat Texas in two straight in Omaha. For some reason his hard play stuck with me, and I was glad when he made it to the majors. I have seen him play a couple of times so far. I was hoping to see him play today, but the whole day game after a night game thing got in the way. (more…)
