1989 Upper Deck – Brendan Ryan

89 upper deck brendan ryanHere is another card that has been sitting around for a while. I saw Brendan play in St. Louis over my birthday weekend in 2009.

1985 Fleer – Brendan Ryan

I was very busy yesterday so I did not get around to posting any cards. I almost made it through today without getting a chance as well. I chose this card of Brendan because he became one of the players I follow after 2009. I saw him play a couple of games at Busch Stadium. He was a fan favorite at home because of his mustache. I took one of my favorite sports pictures of Brendan during a picture day at the stadium during that weekend. That picture found its way into my 2010 custom set. You can see the card and picture here. (more…)


1984 Topps – Brendan Ryan

This is one card that I really like. One reason is that I was able get the ‘stache that Brendan was rocking in 2009 onto a card.

I think that I got the type close enough for what I am doing here. Brendan is no longer on the Cardinals so I thought I would make a couple cards of him using some pictures I had lying around. I always enjoyed watching him play. (more…)
