merging my pictures and cards

Purdue Basketball

1989 Hoops – E’Twaun Moore

The last card of the day is the ’89 Hoops card of E’Twaun Moore. He was selected by Boston with the 55th pick overall in yesterday’s NBA Draft. I love the fact that he will still be a teammate with JaJuan Johnson. (more…)


1989 Hoops – JaJuan Johnson

The celebration of the two Purdue draft picks continues with this ’89 Hoops card. I picked this card for a couple of reasons. One of them is that this was the year that I probably had the most cards. I love this simple design. It is one of the favorites of my childhood. The other reason is that this is the birth year of JaJuan Johnson. He was taken with the 27th overall pick in the NBA Draft last night by the Nets, and then traded to the Boston Celtics. (more…)


1981 Topps – E’Twaun Moore

Since I made an ’81 Topps card for JJ I thought I would make one for his former and current teammate E’Twaun Moore. I liked the real card from the set so it was only natural that I would try these for the two new members of the team. (more…)


1981 Topps – JaJuan Johnson

JaJuan Johnson came to Purdue as part of a great recruiting class by new coach Matt Painter. I really enjoyed watching him play for four years at Purdue. He will continue his playing career in the NBA now with the Boston Celtics. He was selected with the 27th pick overall by the New Jersey Nets, and then traded to the Celtics for MarShon Brooks who the Celtics drafted with the 25th pick.  When the Celtics drafted E’Twaun Moore with the 55th pick of the draft they ensured that these two former Boilers would continue playing together.

1985 Topps Famous Lineage – Glenn Robinson III

A bit of a departure here, but one that I thought would be interesting. So far every famous lineage card I have made has featured at least one baseball player on it. I saw the son of the Big Dog (sounds like a horror movie title doesn’t it?) this past winter playing basketball in my home town. Glenn Robinson Jr. was a great player for Purdue, and he followed that up in the NBA. He is an icon at his former school so I thought it was interesting that his son chose to attend another school in the same conference. (more…)


2010-2011 csd Basketball – Lewis Jackson

Lewis JacksonI took this picture of Lewis when he tried to dunk the ball against Michigan State earlier this season. I loved it right away because he is such a little guy that the picture looks great. A Purdue student took my picture and changed it for a t-shirt design that he had come up with. I liked his changes so much that I decided to make a card out of it. (more…)


2009-10 csd Basketball – E’Twaun Moore

Smooge has been very fun to watch during his time at Purdue. He may have never gotten the accolades of the other players in his class, but he has sure produced. He will leave the school as the #2 scorer ever with an outside shot of taking over the #1 spot. Barring overtime or something crazy this should post about the time E’Twaun is being recognized after the game. (more…)
