1980 Topps – John Danks

Since I will be at the game right now I thought that I would post a card of the starter for the White Sox. I made this card a while back when I made the rest of my 1980 Topps cards. It was the last one left, but in trying to get all my sets on here early I couldn’t post this card. What better time to get it out. (more…)

1980 Topps – J.J. Putz

Thanks to I have watched a few Diamondbacks games already this season. Their new closer is J.J. Putz who was a setup man on the White Sox last season. J.J. had a good year, but the Sox decided to go another way with the arms they already had this season. Putz had a good audition with his contract to sign a bigger one somewhere else. (more…)

1980 Topps – Jim Thome

Since the weather has been horrible I have spent the last couple of days trying to organize this mess that is my card collection. I have spent some time trying to see what has become of it. One set from the 80’s that I have barely any cards of is the 1980 Topps set. Of course that explains why I like the cards I make from it so much. (more…)

1980 Topps – Daniel Hudson

After watching a replay of the 30 Clubs show in the MLB Network featuring the Diamondbacks I was reminded of how much we looked forward to seeing Daniel Hudson when he got to the big club. By the time he did it was only a short time before he was traded to the Diamondbacks as part of the Edwin Jackson deal. We will never know now how he would have been handled as a member of the Sox.

1980 Topps – Scott Podsednik

Once I made this template for the White Sox I knew that I would be making a few of this card. I don’t know why, but I really like it. It is basically a ripoff by Topps of their 1974 set. They changed a few colors, but not too much else. I really have no real leanings towards that 1974 set, but I really like this set. I had a Fred Howard card early on in my trading career. For a while this was my oldest card. Maybe that has something to do with my liking for this set. (more…)

1980 Topps – Chris Getz

I have been making the same cards lately so I thought that I would try a couple of new ones. The first of those is the 1980 Topps card. I initially stayed away from the card because of the ribbon in front of the picture and the slanted position. For some reason I can never get slanted text to look right. I finally sat down to try it out, and thought that it did not look too bad. (more…)
