1986 Topps – Carlton Fisk Tribute (1976-1979)

Just before I quite making cards I had this great idea to make a set much like the one that Topps did for Pete Rose in 1986. They took all of his cards and put the in sets of four to have a career spanning set. This is the second card of that set spanning the years 1976-1979. From here I have some decisions to make concerning the cards. If I don’t put any of the special cards or all star cards on the cards it will work out very nice. In my opinion though those cards are very important. I want to place them on the cards as well. I also toyed with the idea of adding Fleer and Donruss into the mix initially, and then Upper Deck and the others later. Of course things would get very confusing late when all the companies jumped into the mix. For now I think that I will keep things to just Topps. Later I might add some cards with just Donruss or just Fleer. I will at least make the next card in this set before deciding how to proceed.  (more…)

1977 Topps – Melky Cabrera

This is the final Royals card for the night. I like this card for a couple of reasons. The first is that for some reason I love the card design that Topps put out in 1977. Another is the fact that you can see the special patch that Melky is wearing. For some reason the Royals cards looked pretty cool to me so I made plenty of them. I will release the rest of them at a later time, but for now enjoy this final card of the day. (more…)


1977 Topps – Jeff Francis

When I saw the Royals play the White Sox on the Fourth of July Jeff was the starting pitcher. This is the same picture that I used for the previous card of Brayan Pena.  (more…)


1977 Topps – Brayan Pena

Here is yet another Royals card that was made for the backs of my 2011 custom cards. I really did not know who Brayan was at the time, but every catcher I saw made the set. This picture was taken on the Fourth of July as Pena was walking in from the bullpen with Jeff Francis. I used the other part of the same picture for Jeff’s ’77 Topps card. (more…)


1977 Topps – Billy Butler

I guess that I will post some of the Royals cards that I had made for the backs of my 2011 custom cards last season. I saw the Royals play the White Sox, and took a few pictures in order to make some cards. I put most of the Royals on a ’77 Topps card that I didn’t get around to releasing. (more…)


1977 Topps – Paul Konerko

Just to show that I have not lost my marbles and become a Cub fan I thought that I would post a card of Paul Konerko to round out the night. I have posted more cards of Paul than any other player. That is fitting because I have seen Paul play more than any other player in person. He is one of my favorites so I am sure that there will be many more cards of his to come in the future. (more…)


1977 Topps – Chris Getz

During his time with the White Sox I really learned to appreciate Chris Getz. He is not a flashy player, but he does get the job done. I was sad to see him go to the Royals, and looking back at what Mark Teahen has done for the Sox makes that trade even harder to stomach. The Sox needed to make room for Gordon Beckham though so the trade had to be done. (more…)
