merging my pictures and cards

Lansing Lugnuts

1985 Donrus – Chad Jenkins

Midwest League Monday continues with another 1985 Donruss rated rookie card of Chad Jenkins. Chad was selected 20th overall in the 2009 draft. He played most of the season last year with the Lansing Lugnuts the low A ball affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays. He was moved up at the end of the season after a good year that saw him on the Midwest League All Star team. (more…)

Sal Fasano

Sal is currently the manager of the Lansing Lugnuts in the Midwest League. He is a former Major Leaguer that last played professionally in 2009.  He played for nine different organizations during his career. He may be best known for his mustache. (more…)


A.J. Jimenez

A.J. was a highly touted catcher in high school who currently plays for the Lansing Lugnuts. I took this picture last year as the season was winding down, but I have seen him play this season for the Lugnuts as well. (more…)


Chad Jenkins – MWL League All Star

Earlier today I posted the regular card of Chad Jenkins. Now it is time for his Midwest League All Star card. As with the other MWL All Stars I have used the 1986 Topps template for this card. I like how it looks on these cards. I will have to think of a template for the Northern League All Star squad. Once again at 1 Blue Jay Way they have great interview with Chad in which he has a couple classic lines. (more…)


Chad Jenkins

Chad was the first round pick of the Toronto Blue Jays last season. He was the 20th pick overall in the 2009 draft, and looks to be moving right up the Blue Jays ladder. This past week he was promoted to Dundein the Toronto high class A team. Jesse over at 1 Blue Jays Way has a few good posts on Chad. (more…)


Mark Sobolewski

The first post of today covered the story behind why Mark will not be playing in tonight’s Midwest League All Star game in Fort Wayne. He looked like a slugger, and so I took a few pictures of him in case he would be selected to the team. Little did I know that he would get called up a week before the game. (more…)


Mark Sobolewski – MWL All Star

Mark is a perfect example of why an All Star team in low A ball is hard to put together. He was one of the better players who was selected to the Midwest League All Star game that will be played tonight in Fort Wayne. The problem is that if you are playing too good you will be called up. That was the case a little over a week ago when the Blue Jays moved Mark up to their high A ball team in Dunedin. (more…)


Ryan Schimpf

Ryan is one of the rising stars in the Blue Jays organization. When I was headed to the game I looked up the team to see who was on the team worth noting. Ryan was one of those players. It is very hard to predict future talent in low A ball. The best of the best are easy to see, but sometimes you find a few surprises along the way. It will be interesting to see how many players from this years All Star game make it to the bigs. (more…)


Brad Glenn

Brad is in the set because he hit a monster shot on Sunday that helped the Lugnuts win the game. I have a few cards made of Lugnuts players, and I will have to get them out sooner or later. I think I may just have to have days dedicated to some of these teams that I have cards made of. It is getting hard to decide what cards to release on what date. (more…)
