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…)

2011 csd Custom – Kelly Johnson

Kelly is another player that has been in both major sets I have made. His 2010 custom card which is on the back of this one shows just his back, but I like the picture of him finishing a pop up slide so I put the picture on the card. Kelly is part of a young core in Arizona that could make some noise in the not too distant future. (more…)

2011 csd Custom – Daniel Hudson

Daniel was a top prospect in the Sox organization before being traded to Arizona last season. I was able to see him pitch a couple of times, and was looking forward to seeing him play for the Sox on a more regular basis. A deal for Edwin Jackson at the trade deadline took that possibility away. (more…)

2011 csd Custom – Chris Young

Chris was once a highly thought of prospect in the White Sox organization. He is now patrolling centerfield for the Arizona Diamondbacks. He seems to improve every year, and there is no telling how high his ceiling is. For a few years it would have been nice to see what he would have done in Chicago. For now though both teams are fine in center. (more…)

2011 csd Custom – Mark Grace

Mark was a fan favorite of Cub fans for many years. He was a very good first baseman during a fairly successful run for the team. He finished his career in Arizona where he now works as a color man for their TV broadcasts. At first I tried to decide which team to make this card for. Mark is probably most well known for his time in Chicago, but he now works for Arizona. Since he was in Chicago at Wrigley singing the seventh inning stretch I chose the Cubs. (more…)

2011 csd Custom – Alan Trammell

Alan was a great shortstop my entire childhood. He has had a couple of chances to manage, but has not found the same success that he did as a player. He is now part of the very good coaching staff in Arizona. Manager Kirk Gibson may not have the most experience managing, but he has surrounded himself with experience. Alan is just part of that equation. (more…)

2011 csd Preview – Chris Young

Chris was once a young prospect in the White Sox organization. He was sent to Arizona as part of the Javier Vazquez deal. He has since blossomed into a very solid major leaguer. He is part of the young core of players in Arizona that they hope will bring the team back to the playoffs. (more…)
