1987 Topps – Shin Soo Choo

As a fan of the opposing team in Cleveland one thing that annoyed me while at the game was the way the fans kept saying Chooo (as in Boooo) every time he touched the ball. Even if he made a routine catch they chanted his name. That being said he is a dynamic player that the fans can get excited about. I am sure that opposing fans thought the same thing of the Jose Jose Jose chants or the Magglio one they used to do on the South Side. (more…)

2011 csd Custom – Sandy Alomar Jr.

For some reason I liked Sandy Alomar Jr. from early on in his career. I thought it was great that he was a member of the White Sox both times that he was on the team even though it was very late in his career. He is now coaching first base for Cleveland. He has now made both sets that I have done. It doesn’t hurt that he was a catcher. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Travis Hafner

Travis was once on of the most feared hitters in the league and a fan favorite in Cleveland. From what I saw and heard on Opening Day he is not loved as much by the fans. Injuries have really made it hard for Travis to get anything going the last few seasons. (more…)


2011 csd Opening Day – Adam Dunn

One of the reasons I was so excited to go to the game yesterday was to see the debut of Adam Dunn. He was highly touted, and did not disappoint. He hit a bomb in the third inning that was a no-doubter off the bat. He is a power hitter that will have his share of strikouts, but he will also hit his fair share of home runs. He found the second deck in right field during batting practice yesterday after knocking a couple off the second deck facade. (more…)


2011 csd Opening Day – John Danks

Yesterday I was lucky enough to be in Cleveland to see the Sox open the season against the Indians. A while back I had decided to try an Opening Day mini set using only pictures taken on Opening Day. Of course I just thought that it would be the Sox Opening Day in Chicago. Here is the first of those cards. (more…)


1987 Topps Jim Thome

Gentleman Jim was a popular player while playing with the White Sox. His two previous stops were Cleveland and Philadelphia where he hit many home runs. As a member of the White Sox he hit #500 to win a late season game in 2007. He played two more years on the South Side before signing with the Twins last season. (more…)
