merging my pictures and cards

Philadelphia Phillies

1983 Topps Super Veteran – Jamie Moyer

Jamie has been playing so long that he was actually almost able to have a card in the ’83 Topps set. Jamie is sitting out this season so I put his date on the card as 2010. He is recovering from surgery but would like to make a comeback next season. I really hope that he does. (more…)


1985 Topps Famous Lineage – Jayson Werth

Since it is Father’s Day I thought that I would put out some of my Famous Lineage cards where the player is featured with his father. Part of the cool thing about this set is finding out some things that I did not know. Until I saw it on the Baseball Almanac I never knew that Jayson’s father played in the majors. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Cole Hamels

Cole is my sleeper pick for the National League Cy Young award this season. He is on such a good staff that I think he gets overlooked. Pitching deep in the rotation should get him some favorable matchups leading to a good season. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Brad Lidge

Brad has gone from being the Big East player of the year while at Notre Dame to getting the last out in the 2008 World Series as the Phillies closer. He is a veteran closer that now has over 200 saves. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Jimmy Rollins

Jimmy is a fun player to watch. He is very good at what he does for one. When he has a microphone on him for TV you realize that after he is done playing he could end up in a studio. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Jamie Moyer

Even though he is not on the Phillies I made this card of Jamie anyway. I wanted to make a card of him, and since he does not currently have a team using his last team seemed to be the way to go. Jamie is sitting out this season, but will attempt a comeback next season at the age of 49. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Ben Francisco

Ben makes the set based on a night that I spent watching him get heckled last July. The fans were really rough on him all game. He did get some payback as he hit a home run in the ninth inning, but it was too little too late as the Phillies lost 11-6. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Shane Victorino

Shane is a player that has an interesting story. He was selected in the Rule 5 draft twice. It took him a while to crack the bigs, but once he did he became a fan favorite. He got a little playing time when Aaron Rowand was injured, then more when Bobby Abreu was traded, and has been a fixture ever since. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Jose Contreras

As I said in a post a couple of days ago I was never too high on Jose as a member of the White Sox until his last season with the club. He has now had a successful run with Philly as a reliever. I really like the look of this card. The red on the side really looks great. (more…)


1987 Topps – Roy Halladay

After playing a little of the new MLB 2K11 game today I decided to post a couple of cards of the man on the cover. Roy is a great pitcher that is coming off of a great season. I really can’t think of too many people more deserving to be on the cover honestly. Last season he pitched a perfect game in the regular season, and then capped it off with a no-hitter in the post season. He is truly one of the elite pitchers in the league. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Roy Halladay

Since Roy is the cover boy for the New MLB 2k11 game that came out today I thought that I would end the night with a couple cards of the ace pitcher. I am really starting to like my set again. For a while I was having too much fun with other cards, but I have been having fun making some of these teams that I have not made before. I wanted to try and make as many teams before the season started so that I had a template when I started getting the new pictures in. It turns out I am making a completely new set in the process. I guess this is like my version of the Topps Opening Day set. (more…)


1989 Upper Deck – Jimmy Rollins

Saturation Saturday continues with this card of Jimmy Rollins. When I saw the Phillies play the Cubs in July I was worried that my seats in the bleachers would prevent me from seeing the Phillies stars. It turned out I did not get the pictures that I would have liked to get of Roy Halladay and Ryan Howard. (more…)


1985 Topps – Jamie Moyer

Jamie almost had this card for real. He is one of the few players in the league that was playing when I was really collecting cards. He will not play this season due to injury, but has left the door open to play next season. (more…)


1985 Topps – Cole Hamels

Cole is another of the Phillies players I saw when they came to Chicago. The team is so full of stars that I ended up with quite a few cards from that day even though I was in the bleachers where good pictures are hard to come by. Luckily the Phillies seemed to like to turn and look at the crowd during batting practice so I got a few pictures that were not the backs of their warm up jerseys. Cole was getting some heat from the Wrigley crowd as is expected I guess, but just gave them looks as if to say “I make millions how about you?” I caught him one of those times, and thought it would look good on a card. (more…)


1985 Topps – Ross Gload

(more…)


Jayson Werth

With only a few days left this year I thought that I would post the last of my 2010 cards. I have been so busy lately that for some reason I have let this site go by the wayside. I decided that I had better finish off this set before the next season starts. (more…)


Jimmy Rollins

Ryan Howard – All Star

Roy Halladay – All Star

With Halladay throwing a no-hitter in the ninth I thought it would be a good time to post this card. I made it a couple of hours ago, but why not get it out there now? I don’t know why these cards weren’t made earlier, but I am sure that they got lost in the shuffle. (more…)


Ryan Howard

Somehow in the fast paced summer that I had I completely forgot to make the rest of the Phillies cards for the set. How can you forget Ryan Howard? Somehow I did. Now that thins have slowed down a bit you will see some more cards from the games I went to this summer trickle in. (more…)


Ben Francisco

Sunday night we really abused this guy while he was playing left field. It was fun for us, but it could not have been fun for him. (more…)


Jose Contreras

Early in this set I had a card of Jose using him in a Charlotte Knights uniform. I did not think that I would see the Phillies in person this year so I did what I could to get Jose in the set. After Sunday’s game I have a few pictures of Jose so we may see him a couple of more times on this site. (more…)


Shane Victorino

Over the next couple of days I will post some cards using pictures that I took Sunday night at the Cubs game. The first of those is the Phillies centerfielder Shane Victorino. (more…)
