merging my pictures and cards

Winnipeg Goldeyes

2011 csd Custom Traded – Louis Ott

Louis is the first player to get a traded card in my set. He actually had the card very early in the season. I had a picture of him from an exhibition game playing for the Gary Railcats. He was traded shortly afterwards to Winnipeg. I had a feeling that he would be the first player in the traded set. (more…)

2011 csd Custom – Price Kendall

Price was going to be in this set anyway because of his name. I looked him up, but could not find any info on him. I know that I saw him play somewhere before, but cannot place where that was. I love the unique name though so he was going to be in the set. (more…)

2011 csd Custom – Chris Salamida

Chris started the lone game I saw the Winnipeg Goldeyes play this season. I don’t know that I would normally have put him in the set, but I remember being impressed with him. (more…)

2011 csd Custom – Luis Allen

Luis is another Winnipeg Goldeye that I saw play in Gary earlier in the season. He was the catcher so it made sense that he would get a card in the set. I think that I have at least one catcher from every team that I have seen play this season (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…)

1971 Topps – Chris Salamida

Chris was the starting pitcher for the Goldeyes earlier this season when they visited the Gary Railcats. I really liked how this ’71 Topps set looked for the Goldeyes players so I decided to put this card out there. (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…)

1971 Topps – Price Kendall

Price is the second baseman for the Winnipeg Goldeyes. He was probably not going to be in this set, but I snapped a few good pictures of him so he then became a prime candidate to get into the set. Sometimes just a good picture is enough for me to put you in. See there really aren’t any rules here on how this works. (more…)

1971 Topps – Luis Allen

Minor League Monday starts off with a card I had to make for my 2011 custom set. I saw the Winnipeg Goldeyes for the second time this season yesterday so I thought I should start making some cards for them. I decided that I would try the 1971 Topps card for the cards for the back. Next season I will have to come up with something else in order to eliminate making two cards for every player. It is a fun exercise, but it does add some time into the process. (more…)

2011 csd Custom – Amos Ramon

Last season I saw Amos play for the Lake County Fielders. In that game against the Railcats he had a great game so he got a custom card. This year I saw him play an exhibition game against the Railcats, and was thinking about putting him in the set just because he was in last years set. My choice was made very easy when in the fifth inning he hit a foul ball that bounced off the stadium, and then rolled right down to my seat. (more…)

Dee Brown

When this posts I will be at the Gary Railcats game against the Winnipeg Goldeyes. Last year I saw these two teams play on the Fourth of July. They have a special day game today because of the holiday so I will make my way over to Gary to catch yet another Northern League game. (more…)
