2011 csd Custom – Chad Pierce

This is the third card of Chad that I have featured on this blog. I made up an ’86 Topps card for the back of this card and when he was drafted tweaked this cards design a bit for a draft card for him. This will be the final card of Chad in a Milwaukee uniform. I hope that I can see him down the road professionally to get some more pictures of him. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Brandon League

With the All Star game being played tonight I thought I would put out some of my All Star Glossy cards that I have been making. I like the retro design, and besides that meant that I didn’t have to come up with a design of my own for this set. I thought that I would start today off with Brandon. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Joe Mauer

The last preview card of the 2011 set goes to Joe Mauer. I wanted to finish off this subset strong with a few good players. Since I had all the good players from the Sox in the set already I had to pick a few from other teams. Even though Joe plays for the Sox biggest rival he is still a good player and a good guy. It would be hard to top him to finish off this set. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Ichiro

You know a player is very good when nobody ever uses his last name. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Cole Hamels

Cole is my sleeper pick for the National League Cy Young award this season. He is on such a good staff that I think he gets overlooked. Pitching deep in the rotation should get him some favorable matchups leading to a good season. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Mark Teahen

Mark was a White Sox killer as a member of the Royals. He has not played up to that level as a member of the Sox. He has shown signs of what he can do though. Mark is the last member of the Sox that will show up in this preview set. I am winding down the cards that I have, and unless something drastic happens tonight will be the last night for these cards. Tomorrow I can release some other cards for once. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Austin Jackson

Austin is a very good young outfielder for the Tigers. He was so good in fact that the Tigers traded away a local favorite Curtis Granderson. I tried something new on this card. I added an outline around the number on the card. I really like how it looks, and I think that the real set will have it. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Brennan Boesch

Brennan came up to the Tigers last April because of an injury, and never looked back. He hit a double off the first pitch he ever saw in the majors. He kept it going to become the rookie of the month in May and June. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Brad Lidge

Brad has gone from being the Big East player of the year while at Notre Dame to getting the last out in the 2008 World Series as the Phillies closer. He is a veteran closer that now has over 200 saves. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – A.J. Burnett

A.J. is someone that I may have had a misconception about before this post. I thought that he was always on the DL, but looking at his stats I can see that is not always the case. I guess his missing the 2003 has just stuck in my mind for some reason. He is a very good pitcher that continues to baffle hitters in New York. (more…)
