merging my pictures and cards

Washington Nationals

1985 Topps Famous Lineage – Jayson Werth

Since it is Father’s Day I thought that I would put out some of my Famous Lineage cards where the player is featured with his father. Part of the cool thing about this set is finding out some things that I did not know. Until I saw it on the Baseball Almanac I never knew that Jayson’s father played in the majors. (more…)


1988 Donruss – Willie Harris

We are approaching the end of the 1988 Donruss dump today. I have a story that I will share tonight that will explain a little about why the 1988 Donruss dump. It is nothing that exciting, but I thought it was cool. I had some ’88 Donruss cards that I could release so why not do it. I also thought that it would be cool to see a new team like the Washington Nationals on a ’88 Donruss. (more…)

1987 Topps – Ryan Zimmerman

The deluge of 1987 Topps cards comes to a close with this card of Ryan Zimmerman. I decided to dump a few on the site today after seeing way too many sitting in my folder of cards. The snow storm really left me with nothing better to do for a couple of days. Once the template was made, the cards were very easy to do. I heard a lot about Ryan well before he made it to the Majors. I was happy to see him play in 2009 when I saw two games in two days in St. Louis. (more…)

2009 Highlight – Albert Pujols Walkoff


Willie Harris

When you say the name Willie Harris in Chicago one thing comes to your mind. He was the player who scored the winning run on Jermaine Dye’s single to win the World Series in 2005. He was brought up to replace Ray Durham at second base, but never really fit in their plans at second. He did however become a valuable bench player for the team, and will forever be remembered in Chicago. (more…)

John Lannan

John had the unfortunate privilege to face John Smoltz last season when I was in St. Louis over my birthday weekend. Lannan held his own against Smoltz. It took a walk off home run by Albert Pujols in the 9th to win the game for the Cardinals. (more…)

Wil Nieves

Wil is the backup catcher right now to a future Hall of Famer. Ivan Rodriguez is holding down the catching position right now for the Nationals, but Wil is there on the days Pudge can’t go. (more…)

Adam Dunn

For the Fourth of July I thought it would be fitting to have an all Nationals day on the blog. Today I will focus on the remaining Nationals cards in my collection. The first card of the day is of slugger Adam Dunn. Adam has been one of the most feared hitters in the National League for a while. He can take your pitch and deposit it somewhere a long ways away in the outfield. (more…)

Ryan Zimmerman

My first Washington Nationals card is of none other than Ryan Zimmerman. Going into last season I had never seen the Nationals play in person. That all changed on my birthday weekend when I saw them play two nights in a row in St. Louis. It was a great weekend, and I took many pictures of course. The Cardinals won both games, but the Nationals put up a fight both nights. Ryan is famous to me because I read Bus Leagues Baseball, and he is the reason that they have their Z-Meter on the site. So I was happy to finally put a fact to all of the hype. (more…)
