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…)
