1990 Upper Deck – Chris Young

Chris is a player that I have followed for a while. He came up with the White Sox before being traded to the Diamondbacks. He had a good day on Opening Day yesterday for the D-Backs so I thought I would release this card of his that I made last season.  (more…)

1987 Fleer – Russell Branyan

Russell is slugger for sure. He is not in the game for his defense. He is in the game to hit the longball. I made this card last summer to go on the back of my 2011 custom card. Part of the tough part about that card was that I had to make cards for the back. It was a long process that in the end made the set fail. I loved how it looked, but it took way too much time to make.  (more…)


1987 Topps – Dan Haren

I like this set, and thanks to the snowpocolypse I have many of them sitting in a folder waiting to be showcased on this site. Dan is no longer with the Diamondbacks, but he was their ace for a few years. He was part of the draw when I went to see Arizona at Wrigley last season. He is now with the Angels so he has not changed colors too much. (more…)


1987 Fleer – Justin Upton

With the Sox playing at Arizona tonight I thought that I would release a couple cards of the D-Backs. Justin Upton is one of the players that I saw playing in A-ball for the local South Bend Silverhawks. He was the #1 pick of the 2006 draft so we knew that he had the potential to be very good. He has started to show that great potential in the Majors. (more…)


1987 Topps – Ryan Roberts

Ryan is a player that normally would not be on this site. I don’t know too much about him even though he is on the Diamondbacks. I saw him hit a home run live though so he will get this card as well as a card in the ’11 custom set. I love this ’87 Topps design so I have used it here and there for my cards that will go on the back of the custom set for this year. It is a simple design, but I think that it has held up well.

2011 csd All Star Glossy – Yazy Arbelo

I sat down and tried to come up with a cool design for my all star cards this season. Last year I just stole from the ’76, ’85, and ’86 Topps all star designs. I was determined to make a design that was my own. What happened was that I came up with a couple designs that I really want to keep for future custom cards. I stumbled across some all star glossy cards from the 80’s, and knew that I had stumbled across something. Instead of coming up with a new card I could just put out a glossy set. I used one of those cards for a template, and put the ’11 All Star logo on the bottom with the new date at the top. I really liked how these turned out. I would like to make more of these for the Midwest League as well as making them for the American Association and the MLB All Star game. This little sub set could grow to be fairly large before I am done. (more…)


1985 Fleer – Yazy Arbelo

I have a class A affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks just a few miles away from my house. I attend a few South Bend Silverhawks games every year, and it is a given that they will have some cards on this site. In order to make my 2011 custom cards I had to make some cards for the back. I liked how the ’85 Fleer cards were looking so I decided that the Silverhawks would use that Yazy gets the first card because he has stood out the most to me this season. He was just named to the Midwest League All Star team as a reward for his efforts. (more…)
