merging my pictures and cards

San Francisco Giants

1975 Topps – Tim Lincecum

75 topps tim lincecum

I was blessed to get to watch Tim Lincecum pitch a couple of weeks ago. I really love his style, and it was perfect for making lots of pictures. I had a great seat to make pictures of him during the game, but late in the game I was asked to move behind the plate for a minute while they helped a VIP get out of the row. Of course I took that to mean that I could get right behind the plate to make a couple of pictures. I did just that, and the photo above one of those that I took from there.  (more…)


1986 Topps – Gary Carter Tribute (1990-1991)

Mark DeRosa

Mark is one of the Cubs that I really grew to like during his tenure with them. I could not believe it when they let him slip away. Then he went to the rival Cardinals and I knew that they would not be happy about that. I decided that now was the time to try a ‘now with’ card that I grew up with. Topps would not even try to airbrush a card sometimes, but would just type some extra letters to let you know that the player has switched teams. This is my try at that card. (more…)
