merging my pictures and cards

Purdue Baseball

1986 Topps – Barrett Serrato

Barrett was a fun player to photograph while at Purdue for sure. At the plate he had a picture perfect swing with a great finish. In the field he had his hat which had to be the first Purdue hat given to him as it was very faded and dirty. It will be hard to top the pictures of him I gathered over the years.

1991 Leaf – Kevin Plawecki

Since my photo a day project is now over I have a little more time to post here. This is a long overdue card of former Purdue catcher Kevin Plawecki. Kevin is now in the minors, and I can’t wait to see him when he gets up to the bigs.


1991 Leaf – Sean McHugh

Since the 2012 Purdue baseball team is getting their rings tonight I thought that I would post a couple of their cards on here. I made these for fun with a few pictures that I liked from the season.


1986 Topps – Calvin Gunter

This is another card that was made for the back of my custom card last year. For some reason though that set never got finished, and the cards that were made just sat in a folder. Finally this card can see the light of day. It is very good timing too as the Boilers finally come home tonight to play their first home game of the season. It will not be in the new stadium as previously planned, but it will still be nice to see the boys play. They have been very good, and finally getting some national attention. It will be nice to see them getting some local attention after work today. (more…)


1986 Topps – Lance Breedlove

I made this card for Lance last season after seeing him pitch for the Boilers. It was meant to be placed on the back of my 2011 custom card, but that card was never made. Now this card sits as a standalone card. I thought that I would post this card today because Lance has been getting some recognition following his 11 strikeout performance this past weekend in the Big East/Big Ten Challenge in Florida. He was named Big Ten pitcher of the week, and today started seeing some National pitcher of the week awards come his way. This could be a great season for the Boilers. (more…)


1991 Leaf – Tyler Spillner

Tyler made the 2010 custom set because of a great catch he made while crashing into the plywood wall during a game I witnessed live. He is a talented member of the team that was going to make this year’s set regardless of performance. His home run in the first game of the Big Ten Tournament this season was huge. (more…)


1986 Topps – Cameron Perkins

Cameron is another of the very talented sophomore players on the Boilermaker squad. He has really performed well in the games that I have seen the Boilers play. He will be fun to watch as he finishes out his Boiler career. I enjoy watching him play so much that I made a second retro card for him. (more…)
