1984 Topps – Maurice Woodard

I have used this template to make cards of the West Lafayette baseball players, but I thought about trying it on an actual football player since that is what it was meant to be. For some reason I have always liked this ’84 Topps football design. It may have something to do with the fact that this was where my collecting as a kid really started. I like how this card looks as a football card. If I am out making some pictures this fall for my portfolio I may have to make a few more of these. Maurice is being recruited by Purdue so it would be cool to make some cards of him as a Boiler as well.


2010 Football – Cierre Wood

cierre woodThis is how far behind I am on this blog. I have some of the 2010 custom football cards that I made that I have never released. This was a set that started as a tribute to the 1985 Topps Football card, and then morphed into what you see above. It was a simple and clean design that allowed me to show off my pictures a bit more. In the end I never really followed through on it, and I only made a handful of cards. (more…)

1989 Pro Set – Ryan Grant

As I said in the previous post today the Packers open up the playoffs with a game in Lambeau against the Vikings. I thought that I would post some of the cards that for one reason or another never have been posted yet. It is funny how things work. When I took this picture in 2009 Ahman Green had come back to the Pack to help out because of injury. Ryan Grant was the main guy. This year it was Ryan coming back because of injury. Ryan was fun to watch in his day. (more…)


1989 Pro Set – Ahman Green

I made this card last year after the Packers won the Super Bowl. Green was a huge part of past Packers success when he came back to help a team that was having depth issues in 2009. He was quite a bit bigger, but still was not too bad. In fact they had him returning kicks right away.  (more…)


1985 Topps Famous Lineage – Dan Dierking

I really don’t know how I missed this one for so long. I enjoyed watching Dan play for the Boilers for four years. At first we just enjoyed watching him on the kickoff team seemingly making every tackle. Because of injuries his senior year he had a much bigger role on offense. Of course then the injury bug hit him, and I don’t think he was running on all cylinders as the season ended. Of course who is? He was still fun to watch play, and makes a great addition to the Famous Lineage set. (more…)


1984 Topps – Kory Sheets

I really enjoyed watching Kory during his time at Purdue. He provided many great memories during his four year run.This card keeps the countdown going a bit leading up to the 8:00 kickoff against Notre Dame. (more…)
