1957 Topps – Alexei Ramirez

For some reason I have held onto this card for a while. I really like the card, but for some reason I kept waiting to release it. The ’57 Topps design is simple, but for some reason I like it. I probably like it because it has plenty of room for my picture. Of course you can’t have action so the room is used to close shots. (more…)


1989 Upper Deck – Alexei Ramirez

Since he just hit an extra inning home run to win the game I thought that I would close tonight with an Alexei Ramirez card. He is one of my favorite players, and I love his reaction when he knows that he has just hit a game winner. He helped the Sox avoid another bad loss tonight, and for that he gets another card on the site. (more…)

2011 csd Preview – Alexei Ramirez

I might as well keep the Cuban theme going tonight by posting my preview card of Alexei Ramirez. I have loved watching him play since his first spring with the Sox. He started the season off slow, but quickly became a star on the South Side. He is a fun player to watch, and I don’t think that he has reached his potential yet. That is scary. (more…)

2011 csd Preview – Dayan Viciedo

After the success the White Sox had with Alexei Ramirez I think that Sox fans (including myself) expected the same from Dayan Viciedo. He has taken a little longer to progress than I think the Sox even thought. That being said when he gets a hold of the ball it shoots off his bat like a rocket. With a nickname like ‘the tank’ it is hard not to root for him. (more…)

2011 csd Preview – Omar Vizquel

I was not too sure about the sanity of Kenny Williams last year when Omar was brought on with the Sox. He was one of two players still playing who had played in the 80’s. He came up around the same time as Yankees manager Joe Girardi. Omar really did seem to help the team though. I don’t think that it was a coincidence that Alexei Ramirez had a better season last year. That almost made me forget that he wears Luis Aparicio’s number. For his card in the normal set I have to get a picture of him with the likeness of Luis on the outfield wall in the background. I have some work to do. (more…)

1989 Upper Deck – Alexei Ramirez

I already had a card for this set for Alexei when I made this one. Thankfully I already set a little precedent by just changing the logo on the card. The other Alexei had the new logo on it so I just placed the logo that was on the original card here. This card is actually very easy once the template is made. In photoshop I have the teams I have used on the sidebar so I just click on the right one, and it appears where it should. Then I just have to change the name and position and I am good to go.

1988 Donruss – Alexei Ramirez

It had to be hard to top the 1987 Topps card. They were very popular, and the competition was heating up even more in ’88. In addition to Topps and Fleer Donruss had to compete with a new company called Score. They had to come up with a design that would grab the collectors attention. This card certainly grabbed the attention of anyone holding them. This was never my favorite design, but it is growing on me over the years. I even posted way too many of these cards the other day onto the site. (more…)
