merging my pictures and cards

Bronzed Heroes – Ernie Banks

Today is “Mr. Cub’s” 81st birthday. I thought that I would use that occasion to re-launch my Bronzed Heroes set. The premise of this set is easy. I have a lot of pictures of statues from various places that I have visited. I thought that they would look cool on a card, and even put some of the pictures on the ’85 Topps design that I used as my 2010 custom set. I thought that they would be good ‘short prints.’  (more…)

2011 csd All Star Glossy – Jhonny Peralta

Since I have pretty much conceded the season to the Tigers now I thought that the next couple of cards should feature them. Jhonny was a late season pick up last year, and he has helped them to the Division title this season. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Jose Reyes

I thought that it was time to post a couple of my All Star cards again. Jose is a player that seems to be on this team every year. He is an exciting shortstop that does pretty well in the bright lights of New York. (more…)


1915 Cracker Jack – Derek Jeter

Last winter I tried to make some older cards. This is one of those that I tried. I made a Paul Konerko version and this one at the same time. I realized that I really needed to do some tweaking on this one, but thought that since this is how I made it then it should get released that way. I like the idea of the set, and will work on this one a little before putting another one out. (more…)


2011 csd Custom – Wes Long

Wes was a player that was probably not going to make this site. I had never heard of him before, and he was playing for a team in the American Association. I was lucky enough to snap a couple cool pictures of him so he made this set. (more…)


1986 Topps – Brent Dlugach

Brent is a player that I would love to see play in the big leagues one day. I saw him play for the West Michigan Whitecaps who are the Single A Affiliate of the Detroit Tigers. A couple of years later I saw him play for Toledo who is the Triple A affiliate of the Tigers. Now I have seen him play for yet another Triple A team. He would be one of the few players that I have seen play at three levels of baseball if he ever made it up to the Bigs. (more…)


1971 Topps – Wes Long

Wes would probably not made this site, but I was lucky enough to capture him making a couple of good plays against the Railcats earlier this season. I really like how my small team set for Winnipeg turned out using a ’71 Topps template. (more…)
