1988 Score – Juan Pierre

This is the last card of Juan Pierre that I made with an old school template. I enjoyed making the ’88 Score cards, and it was my first if not the first template that I made from scratch after the initial ’85 Topps template. For some reason I always thought that this even looked like it could have been in that initial score set.  (more…)

1988 Score – Gavin Floyd

I made this Score set a while ago and I need to post the rest of the cards that I made so that when I make my new template I don’t have any of these left. Since I will be at the Sox game tonight with Gavin on the mound I thought that it would be a great opportunity to get this card out there. (more…)

1988 Score – Jose Contreras

Here is yet another former Sox player on the ’88 Score card. I was never as big of  a fan of Jose as I should have been until he was sent down to Charlotte in 2009. I am a big Mark Buehrle fan so I was always upset that Jose was getting more of the prime starts than Mark. Of course Jose deserved them, but that doesn’t matter when you are a fan. I met Jose when he was playing for Charlotte, and he actually initiated the conversation. He pointed at my ball and asked me if I wanted his autograph. I had me back to him initially, but he must have assumed we were all waiting for him. He was so cool that I hoped he would make it back up to the big club soon. (more…)

1988 Score – Jermaine Dye

This was one of my first cards that I made. I looked at the card and thought that it would be simple for me to make from scratch. I was right, and so I made a few of them. I am still trying to get through them all before I move on to making them with my new photoshop program. (more…)

1988 Score – Bobby Jenks

I have not been too high on Bobby lately so I have been holding off on releasing his cards. If I want to get rid of all the former Sox players though I had better release them. I love this ’88 Score set so I made my own templates for each color. Thankfully it was very easy to do with my limited skills. (more…)

1988 Score – Willy Taveras

Yet another picture from the Civil Rights game. Because of the uniforms that both teams had on I took about as many pictures as I do now that I know I will be making cards out of them.  I liked the ’88 Score design so much that I made my own cards from scratch. Now that I have changed programs I don’t know what will become of these cards. I may have to just make some new templates to work from. (more…)

1988 Score – Alexei Ramirez

Saturation Sunday will close with this 1988 Score replica card of Alexei Ramirez. When he first came to the White Sox I had never heard of him. He had a great spring in 2008 making the team. He struggled out of the gate, but then performed to the level that had him in the Rookie of the Year talk. He is one of my favorite players because of the passion that he plays the game with. This picture is a little different. Alexei had a very weird stance watching the ball into the catchers glove. I don’t remember the exact circumstances, but I would almost bet it was a bunt attempt. No matter I love the picture, and think it looks good on the card. (more…)
