Ramon Castro

1992 Donruss – Ramon Castro

Now we are quickly coming up on cards that I really didn’t collect. I was going to stop at the 1991 Donruss card, but I realized that I did get a few packs of these Donruss cards. I liked the look of the card, and wanted the challenge of the team name. I wanted to stay sort of true to the set by keeping the 1992 on the top of the card. I tried many ways of putting my name on the card, and none of them looked very well. I stuck with the current design at the top because it looked the best. The team and position line was easy so that did not take very long. The hardest part I thought was going to be the player name. How could I get an outline around the name? It turned out to be simple. I never use the text section on the side of my photoshop program. I found one that I thought worked very well. It is not perfect, but for me it is pretty good. (more…)


Ramon Castro

Ramon is now the third catcher that I have seen this season for the White Sox. Not surprisingly he is the third White Sox catcher that I have made a card of. I am sure that I will have at least a fourth card when Tyler Flowers is called up at some point this season.With all the talk about A.J. getting traded, Flowers seemingly the catcher of the future, and the solid play of Lucy when Castro was hurt I wonder what Ramon’s future will be with the Sox. I was actually shocked when he was back this season. No matter what he does though he will always be a part of White Sox history for catching Mark’s perfect game. (more…)
