1985 Topps Famous Lineage – Colby and Cory Rasmus

85 topps famous lineage cory and colby rasmus

Since I posted the single card of Cory earlier today I thought that I would post this famous lineage card that I made for Cory and his brother Colby. Since this is my idea I used a card of Colby that I made in 2010 for my first (more…)

1989 Upper Deck – Brendan Ryan

89 upper deck brendan ryanHere is another card that has been sitting around for a while. I saw Brendan play in St. Louis over my birthday weekend in 2009. I was a very fun trip that allowed me to see some Cardinal games from up close. For some reason the mustache of Brendan really made him interesting to photograph for me. That along with his socks which were very different seemed to be a lightning rod for my camera. (more…)


1987 Donruss – John Smoltz

Today I heard that the new card set by Topps was out. Of course I don’t actually collect cards anymore. At least not real cards. I just make fake cards using my pictures. As a child the set that really has always stuck in my mind as one that was hard to get was the 1987 Donruss set. I had a factory set of Fleer early in the year, and you could by a pack of Topps anywhere it seems like. I bought a lot of them too. Donruss though seemed to be very hard to get. My father bought me many packs to try and complete the set. We had a lot of fun putting the set together which we eventually did. For that reason this set will always have a special place for me.

Bronzed Heroes – Stan Musial

I have been reading the book ‘Stan Musial’ by George Vecsey. It is a great book that highlights the career of this great ballplayer. The book was recommended to me by my father, and it is great to think of baseball while the weather is so cold. If you like to read I would recommend this book for sure. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Matt Holliday

Since I had some fun releasing my Midwest League All Star cards yesterday I thought that I would release a few of my MLB All Star glossies today. I thought that I would start it off with this card of Matt Holliday. For some reason I really like this card, and I think that is part of the problem of why some of these have not been released yet. I wanted to do it right. At some point though I just have to get them out there. (more…)


2011 All Star Glossy – Yadier Molina

Yadier is part of a very good catching crop produced by his parents. He has solidified the position for the Cardinals for some time now. He makes the All Star team as a reserve this season. This will make the third All Star game that he has been selected for. (more…)


1985 Topps Famous Lineage – Joel Skinner

Joel was part of the actual Father-Son subset in 1985. He was a member of the Sox then so of course I have a few of them. He is now the bench coach for the Oakland Athletics. I thought that it would be cool to make this card just to see how things have changed in the last 26 years. (more…)
