1986 Topps – Carlton Fisk Tribute (1980-1982)

Here is yet another card in the mock Carlton Fisk tribute that I made up. This card might not have been made yet if not for the Gary Carter tribute set that I made upon learning of his death. It was with that set that I made the decision to leave out the All Star and other special cards in order to keep things running a little better. I did include the ’81 Topps traded card of Carlton though. He did play for the White Sox in ’81 so it had to be there. Where things would have started getting tricky was in 1982 with the In Action and All Star cards that Topps put out. I think that for now those were best left off of the card.  (more…)

1986 Topps – Carlton Fisk Tribute (1976-1979)

Just before I quite making cards I had this great idea to make a set much like the one that Topps did for Pete Rose in 1986. They took all of his cards and put the in sets of four to have a career spanning set. This is the second card of that set spanning the years 1976-1979. From here I have some decisions to make concerning the cards. If I don’t put any of the special cards or all star cards on the cards it will work out very nice. In my opinion though those cards are very important. I want to place them on the cards as well. I also toyed with the idea of adding Fleer and Donruss into the mix initially, and then Upper Deck and the others later. Of course things would get very confusing late when all the companies jumped into the mix. For now I think that I will keep things to just Topps. Later I might add some cards with just Donruss or just Fleer. I will at least make the next card in this set before deciding how to proceed.  (more…)


1986 Topps – Carlton Fisk Tribute (1972-1975)

Part of the fun for me with this blog is going back and re-creating the cards that I loved as a child. For the most part I have taken my pictures and put them on the templates from pre 90’s cards. One of the cooler sub sets that I can remember from the 80’s was the Pete Rose tribute set that Topps put out in 1986. They had all of his base cards in a six card set. Of course I had to try and re-create this set. I was going to use some cards of Paul Konerko that I had made. To get that going though I would have to creat a couple of new ones to start. Instead I thought about how cool it would be to just make this set for my favorite player as a child, Carlton Fisk. I have only made the first card so far, but I like how it turned out. It might be a while, but I plan on finishing this small mini set. (more…)


2001 Upper Deck Decades – Carlton Fisk

I thought that since the White Sox were unveiling the statue of the Big Hurt tomorrow I would make a card from the last time I was at the ballpark to see a statue unveiled. Of course it was of Carlton Fisk. I altered the Upper Deck card a little to  make it my own. (more…)


1983 Topps – Paul Konerko/Carlton Fisk

Watching the Sox game tonight I saw Paul Konerko hit a home run over the Green Monster to give the White Sox a 3-1 lead over the Red Sox. The home run was important because it was the 376th of Paulie’s career. That tied him with Carlton Fisk for 66th all time. This is important to me because two of my favorite players of all time are now linked for what I hope is a very short period. The event inspired me to make my first card in quite some time. I thought that I would post it right away so that others could enjoy it. I posted the card as a 1983 Topps because I just basically tweaked my ’83 Topps Super Veteran template to make the card.

2011 csd Custom – Carlton Fisk

A set just wouldn’t be a set on here until the Fisk card was added to it. I was going to add this card first, but I decided to release the Jackie Robinson card first Friday. It just seemed like a good way to kick off the set. The set can really get going now that my favorite play has been released. (more…)


1985 Topps 25th Anniversary – Carlton Fisk

As I have said in previous posts this set was meant to commemorate the 25th anniversary of my first Major League game. I celebrated that all last season using it as an excuse to go to many games. That is how this whole custom card thing got started as well. I was just messing around putting my pictures on the ’85 Topps template, and it just took off from there. Of course in coming up with a 25 card set for my 25th anniversary I had to include Carlton Fisk. I met him along with Richard Dotson during that first game, and Fisk has been my favorite player ever since. I didn’t know that he would be a Hall of Famer then. I just knew that he was this cool guy who talked to me and signed my program. (more…)
