merging my pictures and cards

1985 Topps – Marcos Mateos

This is yet another card that was made for the sole purpose of being on the back of my 2011 custom card. I never made the regular card so this card for the back never was released. Marcos has a very cool delivery so I am sad that the card was never made. (more…)


Bronzed Heroes – Ernie Banks

Today is “Mr. Cub’s” 81st birthday. I thought that I would use that occasion to re-launch my Bronzed Heroes set. The premise of this set is easy. I have a lot of pictures of statues from various places that I have visited. I thought that they would look cool on a card, and even put some of the pictures on the ’85 Topps design that I used as my 2010 custom set. I thought that they would be good ‘short prints.’  (more…)


1991 Fleer – Tyler Colvin

This was a fun card to make. I really only owned a couple of the real cards, but for some reason I liked how this one turned out. Tyler is one of the players on the Cubs that I actually liked. I was sad to see him struck by the bat, and was actually rooting for him to get back to the form that I thought that he could show. The Cubs gave up on him though and sent him to Colorado. I hope that he can find some of that form again.  (more…)


1993 Donruss – Aramis Ramirez

I have had this card made for a while, but have not released it yet. Like most cards I make it came in a card making spurt, and if they don’t get posted right away I tend to forget about them. I want to post my new creations first. To me this card is cool because it represents the first year in many that I did not pick up any cards. I had so many other things going on that the hobby kind of fell away from me. I still don’t collect many actual cards, but getting to know the designs of the cards during the period that I did not collect (1993-2002) has actually been pretty fun. (more…)


1975 Topps – Starlin Castro

I have been missing from here for a couple of days. A new job has really had my attention lately. I thought that I would post a couple more of my ’75 Topps cards today to get things going again on the blog. The first is of Starlin Castro. He is still rough around the edges, but is a very good player. When he hits his stride I think that he will really be something else. I have made a few cards of the future star, and plan on making a few more. (more…)


2011 csd All Star Glossy – Starlin Castro

I really don’t have near enough Cubs cards for the amount of pictures I have for the team. I am sure that this is something that will change over the winter. One player that I enjoy making cards of is Starlin Castro. He is really an up and comer that I think is just scratching the surface of what he can do. If that is true then Cubs fans have something special to watch over the next few years. (more…)


1983 Topps Super Veteran – Jamie Moyer

Jamie has been playing so long that he was actually almost able to have a card in the ’83 Topps set. Jamie is sitting out this season so I put his date on the card as 2010. He is recovering from surgery but would like to make a comeback next season. I really hope that he does. (more…)
