1985 Topps – Alex Rios

Since today is Opening Day for the Sox I thought that I would post a couple of cards of the team from the South Side of Chicago. If you haven’t figured out by looking at this site yet that I like the White Sox than you haven’t really been looking at this site. One of the guys that I really will be rooting for this season is Alex Rios. Alex has shown what kind of player that he can be, but sometimes I think that he is his own worst enemy. I hope that he can have another season like we know that he can have this year.  (more…)


1984 Fleer Special – Pierre, Rios, Quentin

This was one of the first SuperStar Special cards that I attempted. As a kid I always looked forward to seeing who Fleer paired up on these cards every year. I don’t have the access to the players like Fleer does so I have to be a little creative when I make these cards.  (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Alex Rios

Alex came to the White Sox on a waiver deal while he was not playing well in 2009. The change of scenery did not help him much that season. Last year we really got a look at what Alex can do. He can really play the field, and he is not too shabby at the plate either. (more…)


1993 Donruss – Alex Rios

This is the 14th card that I have posted today. I had to make some of them on the fly to make this day work. The first few were all made, but a few of them had to be made tonight. I found this card while looking for a good 1992 Donruss template. I never really collected it, but I loved how it looked. I figured that I could squeeze one more card into this day. It was a simple design that was easy to make. I just separated the name plate and team area, and then put the picture behind them. I really loved this design, and even though it is newer I thought that I might try a few more before it is all said and done. (more…)


1985 Fleer – Alex Rios

I love the look of the 1985 Fleer set. Early on in my card making days I made this template from scratch. It looks a little off, but I still like the look of the card. For some reason the gaudy cards from the 80’s are still my favorite. (more…)
