merging my pictures and cards

Miguel Olivo

1985 Fleer – Miguel Olivo

85 fleer miguel olivo

This is another card that was originally made to go on the back of my 2011 custom set that I made many cards for, but never really released. The sole purpose of the cards was to grace the back of my card that I made from scratch. It was a good idea, but as usual I made it into something much bigger than it should have been making it very hard to complete. Making backs with a blurb for each card was a great idea, but took a lot of time. (more…)

1988 Donruss – Miguel Olivo

Here is yet another card of Miguel. Today’s theme is the Colorado Rockies on the blog, and I thought that this card was a good continuation of that theme. I love these cards because of course the Rockies were not in existence in 1988 so it is interesting to see what might have been. I took this picture in 2010 as Miguel was warming up the pitcher prior to a game against the Cubs.  (more…)


1987 Topps – Miguel Olivo

I have enjoyed watching Miguel play since he came up with the White Sox. For some reason in the short time he played on the southside he seemed to love playing the Cubs. Since then he has played for quite a few teams. This picture was taken in 2010 as Olivo was warming up against the Cubs as a member of the Rockies. Keeping with the theme of posting cards of a team a day I thought that today would be a good day to post some Rockies cards. (more…)


1989 Upper Deck – Miguel Olivo

Miguel was a very solid catcher for the White Sox. He was traded to the Mariners in the deal that brought Freddy Garcia to the Sox. He has since been on a few teams in the Majors. This past off season had to be weird for him. He was traded to the Blue Jays who then declined his 2011 option making him a free agent. The Mariners then signed him, and that is where he is now playing. Must be strange to get traded to a team who then does not pick up the option to keep you. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Miguel Olivo

I have been a fan of Miguel’s ever since he was a member of the White Sox. His grand slam against the Cubs is still ingrained in my mind. Miguel has since played for several teams. I have seen him on a couple of those. He is a solid catcher, and it seems teams recognize that as he is never without work. He has signed on to play with the Mariners this season going back to a former team. I may have to go and see a game or two when they come to town. (more…)


Miguel Olivo

The Rockies cards are coming hot and heavy. The two players that I seemed to have the most pictures of yesterday were Todd Helton and Miguel Olivo. I explained my interest in Helton in the last post, but Olivo is a different story. He will probably not be in the Hall of Fame. He was of interest to me because of his time in Chicago. He was only here a short time, but he was fun to watch. His grand slam against the Cubs is a moment that is still seared into my brain. I kept hoping for a repeat last night, but it did not come. This is the fifth post already that features a catcher. If you read my other blog Confessions of a Sports Junkie you know that the catcher is probably my favorite position. I assume there will be a few more catchers that make their way into this set before it is all said and done. (more…)
