merging my pictures and cards

Scott Podsednik

1984 Topps – Scott Podsednik

I have done a few Scotty Pods cards so far on this site. I think part of that is nostalgia for the ’05 Championship team, and the other part was that he came back with the Royals right when I started making cards for this site. I had a couple close up shots of his face so I decided to try a 1984 Topps card of him. (more…)

1987 Topps – Scott Podsednik

Here is yet another card of Scotty Pods. Last year I saw a few former Sox players when the Royals came to town. It seems as if the two teams have a knack for playing former players of the other teams. (more…)

1985 Fleer – Scott Podsednik

Here is yet another former Sox player. I liked this picture so I thought I would put it on a card. For some reason I really liked this 1985 Fleer set. This is still using the old template so some of the card is a little rough. I made this card a while ago though so I thought that I would just post it as is. (more…)

1978 Topps – Scott Podsednik

Kenny Williams struck lightning twice with Scotty Pods. The first time when he came over from the Brewers he had a great start to 2005. Whenever he was on base the game was a little more exciting. The second time Scott could not find a team, and Kenny signed him to a minor league deal. He came up and used an unorthodox batting style to hit .300 from the leadoff spot. (more…)

1980 Topps – Scott Podsednik

Once I made this template for the White Sox I knew that I would be making a few of this card. I don’t know why, but I really like it. It is basically a ripoff by Topps of their 1974 set. They changed a few colors, but not too much else. I really have no real leanings towards that 1974 set, but I really like this set. I had a Fred Howard card early on in my trading career. For a while this was my oldest card. Maybe that has something to do with my liking for this set. (more…)

1972 Topps – Scott Podsednik

I thought that I might post a few cards today. I think I really want to get that Cracker Jack card off of the top of the page. I do like these 1972 Topps cards, and I think it is time to put a few out. I love this design, and I really think the black uniforms look good on it. I have a few more of these waiting to be released so I might have to get to doing that pretty quick. I have been sidetracked a little lately. (more…)

1982 Topps IA – Scott Podsednik


1982 Topps – Scott Podsednik

Scott served two tours of duty with the White Sox. He was part of the deal that sent Carlos Lee to the Brewers before the 2005 season. At the time I couldn’t believe that the Sox had gotten rid of Carlos. Who was this little outfielder they got to replace him? Scott quickly endeared himself to Sox fans by stealing bases at a record pace. He injured himself before he could set any Sox stolen base records that season, but did help the team get off to a great start. After leaving the Sox for greener pastures he found himself on hard times. He signed a minor league deal in 2009, and quickly was helping the Sox again. (more…)

1971 Topps – Scott Podsednik


Scott Podsednik – SP

Here is another reason for the short prints. I really had some decent pictures of guys that I liked on the South Side. Why not use them in the set? This picture was taken on the same night as the Jim Thome short print from earlier in the day. Last July I was at the Mullet night game, and had some good seats for taking pictures. A few of those from that night have found their way into this set. Scott already has one card in the set with his new team the Royals. I just thought it would be cool for him to have one in a White Sox uniform. (more…)

Scott Podsednik

Here is yet another card of a White Sox opponent from this season.Of course everyone knows about Scotty Pods in Chicago. He was one of the additions that sparked the 2005 championship season. After a couple of injury filled seasons the Sox let him go. Last season when we needed another spark he was picked up again for peanuts. He had a good batting average, but like 2005 that never really translated into runs scored. This past off season the Royals signed him just after signing Brian Anderson. If you come to the Cell take a walk to right center field where you will find one blue seat that signifies his game winning home run in Game 2 of the 2005 World Series. (more…)
