1975 Topps – Tim Lincecum

75 topps tim lincecum

I was blessed to get to watch Tim Lincecum pitch a couple of weeks ago. I really love his style, and it was perfect for making lots of pictures. I had a great seat to make pictures of him during the game, but late in the game I was asked to move behind the plate for a minute while they helped a VIP get out of the row. Of course I took that to mean that I could get right behind the plate to make a couple of pictures. I did just that, and the photo above one of those that I took from there.  (more…)

2013 Topps COLE STAPLETON

Here is yet another custom card from the West Lafayette baseball team. I have had a lot of fun putting my images on the 2013 Topps template. I have been trying to find an interesting image for each player. For some the images are hard to pick from. Others like the one above just look different enough from the rest to make it onto a card.

Here is another card that I made for the 2013 West Lafayette JV team. I am a bit behind in posting them because of something else coming up unexpectedly, but I need to get these cards out there. I love the new Topps design, and I also like finding pictures of mine to put on them. I will try and keep up with this project over the next couple of days, but it may go on hiatus again as I make a trip to San Francisco to see the Giants play.

1981 Donruss – Carlton Fisk

81 donruss CARLTON FISK

Part of the fun of freeing myself from having to use my own pictures on certain cards is the fact that I can go back and make cards that should have been made. Carlton Fisk signed with the White Sox in March of 1981 so the card companies did not have the proper time to make a White Sox card of the catcher. All three companies featured him as a member of the Red Sox in their 1981 base sets. Topps gave Carlton a White Sox card with their traded set, but the other two companies were probably more worried about year two of their brand than updating cards at the time. I decided to see what a White Sox Donruss card of Carlton (more…)


2013 Topps – Travis Rolle

2013 Topps TRAVIS ROLLE 10.14.38 AM

Here is yet another of the cards that I am making for the West Lafayette baseball team. It has been a lot of fun finding the pictures, and deciding which orientation the cards will be. It has also gotten me back into Photoshop which was the goal at the beginning. A picture like the one above would have just sat on my hard drive or ended up on Facebook where a few people would see it. Now it is out there where many more can see it. I like giving new life to my photos.
