1990 Upper Deck – Chris Young

Chris is a player that I have followed for a while. He came up with the White Sox before being traded to the Diamondbacks. He had a good day on Opening Day yesterday for the D-Backs so I thought I would release this card of his that I made last season.  (more…)

2011 csd Custom – Chris Young

Chris was once a highly thought of prospect in the White Sox organization. He is now patrolling centerfield for the Arizona Diamondbacks. He seems to improve every year, and there is no telling how high his ceiling is. For a few years it would have been nice to see what he would have done in Chicago.

1987 Topps – Diamondbacks Leaders

How do you make a card for a team that didn’t even exist for another ten years? I really wanted to try and make one of these cards.

1989 Upper Deck – Chris Young

Only two more cards left in the 1989 Upper Deck dump that I have put on today. This card is of Diamondbacks centerfielder Chris Young. Chris was once a highly thought of prospect in the Sox organization. It is amazing how many of these promising centerfielders that the team traded away. It is no wonder they were hurting in center for a few years before getting Alex Rios. (more…)
