1984 Topps – A.J. Pierzynski

I had made this card a long time ago with some other Sox players. This was the first card type that I owned. It has probably been said many times on here, but I picked up my first baseball card ever in a trade for a french fry. It was a battered ’84 Topps Vance Law. I still have that card somewhere, and for that reason I always will enjoy this set.  (more…)

1977 Topps – Jeff Francis

When I saw the Royals play the White Sox on the Fourth of July Jeff was the starting pitcher. This is the same picture that I used for the previous card of Brayan Pena.  (more…)


1985 Fleer – Franklin Gutierrez

Today I thought that I would release some of the Mariner cards that I made for the backs of my 2011 custom set that never really got a fair shot. For the Mariner team I made ’85 Fleer cards because I had just made a template and I really liked how they looked. When I saw the team play last season a few cards came of it. Franklin probably would not have made the set except for the fact that he was on one of my favorite cards so far. A couple of years ago I saw the Indians playing the White Sox. As part of his pregame routine Franklin stood on his head. I was lucky enough to get a picture of it, and it made an appearance on a 1989 Upper Deck card that I made.  (more…)


1984 Topps – Joe Mauer

This is yet another card that has been sitting in a folder on my computer for a while. At one point I was not working, and the cards were being made at an incredible pace. This is one from that time period. I couldn’t possibly post them all so I decided to just slowly release them. When I stopped having the time to make them I should have just kept posting the cards, but for some reason I did not. Joe should not be one of my favorite players because he is a star for a rival team. For some reason though I really enjoy watching him play. This card has two pictures from two separate occasions that make it up. The main picture was taken as Joe was jogging out to the bullpen prior to a game against the White Sox in 2009. He didn’t look up so I had to make do with what I had. The inset picture is of him warming up in the Metrodome in 2008. I loved the old school Twins uniforms, but I didn’t know enough about photography yet to make the picture as sharp as it could have been. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Stefan Gartrell

Stefan is a player that I have learned a lot more about the last few days. During the Sox broadcast against the Cubs Friday Hawk had nothing but good things to say about the young outfielder. During that game he seemed to be the only offense the White Sox had early on as well. I didn’t pay too much attention to him when I saw him play for Charlotte last season, but I may pay a little more this season. (more…)


1989 Upper Deck – Casey Kotchman

As long as I am posting some cards with interesting pictures I thought that I would post this one of Casey Kotchman. Last year when he was playing for the Mariners I caught him stretching in a weird pose. When going through my pictures looking for interesting pictures I saw this one, and thought of an Upper Deck card right away. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Clayton Kershaw

The baseball cards are back today as the preview card of Clayton Kershaw is released. I love this card because of course I decided to show Clayton batting instead of what he should be doing. Being an American League fan I rarely get to see pitchers bat. Of course I would just have to go a little more north to see it, but I enjoy watching people at the plate who can hit. (more…)
