1986 Topps – Carlton Fisk Tribute (1972-1975)

Part of the fun for me with this blog is going back and re-creating the cards that I loved as a child. For the most part I have taken my pictures and put them on the templates from pre 90’s cards. One of the cooler sub sets that I can remember from the 80’s was the Pete Rose tribute set that Topps put out in 1986. They had all of his base cards in a six card set. Of course I had to try and re-create this set. I was going to use some cards of Paul Konerko that I had made. To get that going though I would have to creat a couple of new ones to start. Instead I thought about how cool it would be to just make this set for my favorite player as a child, Carlton Fisk. I have only made the first card so far, but I like how it turned out. It might be a while, but I plan on finishing this small mini set. (more…)


1975 Topps – Bruce Chen

Here is another color combination I came up with for the ’75 Topps tribute cards I have been making. This was a color combination that I am not too fond of, but for some reason I like how this card turned out. It has a very nice balance to it for some reason. (more…)


1975 Topps – Brandon Phillips

I was never too sure exactly what I thought of Brandon until I saw him play in 2009. As one of the bigger names on that Reds team you would have thought that he would have had a bigger head. Instead of hanging out in the clubhouse before the game he spent most of that time signing as many autographs as he could. That put him on my list of players to watch, and got him a couple of extra cards on this site. (more…)


1975 Topps – Adam Dunn

I have not made many cards of Adam yet. Some of that may be due to the fact that he is not living up to expectations. That is not a knock on Adam. It would be hard to live up to the expectations that the fans put on him before the season started. He has fallen on rough times, and the fans are letting him hear it right now. So far he has handled everything very well. I would love to see him reach the concourse in right field where he pointed at the day he was announced at the stadium. (more…)


1975 Topps – Starlin Castro

I have been missing from here for a couple of days. A new job has really had my attention lately. I thought that I would post a couple more of my ’75 Topps cards today to get things going again on the blog. The first is of Starlin Castro. He is still rough around the edges, but is a very good player. When he hits his stride I think that he will really be something else. I have made a few cards of the future star, and plan on making a few more. (more…)


1975 Topps – Mike Moustakas

Mike just proves the age old theory that if you hit me a baseball while I am at a game I will make many cards with your picture on them. I thought that since Mike hit me a baseball I would give him some star treatment for a while on this site. I gave him the same colors as a great Kansas City third baseman’s rookie card. As a kid I loved George Brett, and his ’75 Topps card is stuck in my head. I pulled it up to make sure of the colors, and put them on this card. I thought it was only fair. (more…)


1975 Topps – Brad Mumma

Are you sick of the ’75 Topps cards yet? I am not. I have had some fun coming up with a few different color variations with this card. I thought that I would include a hometown player in this set. Brad was a star player for the LaPorte High School baseball team before his pro career. He never made it above Double A, but it is still cool to see a local kid do well. (more…)
