1954 Topps – Corky Miller

I had the nice close up picture of him though so I thought I would take my first crack at the ’54 Topps card. This is another card that I made from scratch. From now on I would like to do that whenever possible instead of altering an existing card. It gives me a little more freedom to make things how I want them. This card looks a little off for some reason to me. I may have to tweak the design when I try this card again. (more…)

1976 Topps – Corky Miller

Corky will always be an interesting player to me because I saw him play for three different teams in one season. In 2009 he started the season with the White Sox.
