1985 Fleer – Jason Varitek

With Tek retiring I thought that he deserved another day on this site. My favorite player was a catcher on the Red Sox, and ever since then I have taken a little notice of the other backstops in Boston. Rich Gedman was the one in the 80’s that caught my eye. For a long time now Jason Varitek has been the guy. I took this picture last August while Jason was catching against the White Sox. I was happy that he caught the Sunday game so that I could see him catch one last time. Varitek has really succeeded at every level that he has played. Look up his stats, and you will be impressed with how his teams have done over the years. Boston has a huge hole to fill.  (more…)


1986 Topps – Brent Dlugach

Brent is a player that I would love to see play in the big leagues one day. I saw him play for the West Michigan Whitecaps who are the Single A Affiliate of the Detroit Tigers. A couple of years later I saw him play for Toledo who is the Triple A affiliate of the Tigers. Now I have seen him play for yet another Triple A team. He would be one of the few players that I have seen play at three levels of baseball if he ever made it up to the Bigs. (more…)


1989 Hoops – E’Twaun Moore

The last card of the day is the ’89 Hoops card of E’Twaun Moore. He was selected by Boston with the 55th pick overall in yesterday’s NBA Draft. I love the fact that he will still be a teammate with JaJuan Johnson. (more…)


1985 Topps – Jason Varitek

Anyone who reads either of my two blogs knows that I like the catcher position more than any other. That being said how can you not like a guy like Jason Varitek? He played one game for the Red Sox in 1997 and has been their catcher ever since. He was also named their third captain after the 2004 World Series win. He recently signed a one year deal to stay in Boston for the 2011 season. He really is a staple for the Red Sox. (more…)


1985 Topps – John Lackey

This was also part of the 2010 set that I did. John is one of the bigger name pitchers in the league so I knew that I wanted him in the set. Since I did not see Boston play last year I had to use a picture from his time with the Angels. I thought that maybe it could pass as a weird alternate uniform for the BoSox. I made this card early in the year thinking that I would see him when the Red Sox came to town and change the picture. That of course never happened so I was stuck with the picture you see. (more…)


1985 Fleer Mark Kotsay

Since he probably won’t be back next season I thought that I would post this card of Mark Kotsay. I made a few cards with some players that were probably leaving or not on the team earlier in the year just to try out some different card sets. This one of Kotsay is from that time period. (more…)
