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.
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…)
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…)
