1985 Topps Famous Lineage – Colby and Cory Rasmus

85 topps famous lineage cory and colby rasmus

Since I posted the single card of Cory earlier today I thought that I would post this famous lineage card that I made for Cory and his brother Colby. Since this is my idea I used a card of Colby that I made in 2010 for my first (more…)


1990 Upper Deck – Cory Rasmus

90 upper deck cory rasmus

Cory is the younger brother of Blue Jays slugger Colby Rasmus. I was getting some shots of the stadium in the upper deck when he was called into the game. I knew that he was one of the players that I had identified before the game that I wanted to get. I worked my way down to the main level to get a good angle on him. I snapped a couple of quick pictures to make sure I had something, and then moved to where I wanted to be. I was able to snap one picture before (more…)


1990 Upper Deck – Daniel Rodriguez

I was having a little fun this morning putting a couple of my newer images onto baseball cards. I didn’t want to spend too much time doing it though so I tried to keep the same card for the same team. For the Gwinnett Braves I used the 1990 Upper Deck card. I only made a couple of these, but I kind of liked them so I thought that I would share them with you today. (more…)


1984 Topps – Steve Meister

84 topps steve meisterHere is another card that has sat in a folder for a long time. I made this card when I heard that this lineman was an acquaintance of a friend. I saw him play for Miami (OH) twice during his career so I wondered if I had a picture of him. I did find a couple pictures, but they were not of the best quality. That might be why this card has sat for so long.


2011 csd Preview – Jose Contreras

As I said in a post a couple of days ago I was never too high on Jose as a member of the White Sox until his last season with the club. He has now had a successful run with Philly as a reliever. I really like the look of this card. The red on the side really looks great. (more…)


1988 Donruss – Albert Pujols

More Pujols? Yup. I have a couple more cards of Albert to release today.The 1988 Donruss set is not my all time favorite, but it still has its merits. After a few years of making cards that I liked they really seemed to strike out for a couple years in a row. (more…)


1986 McDonald’s – Nick Barnett

Just because he was not on the postseason roster does not mean that I cannot have Nick in my celebration cards. Nick is a great linebacker that was missed this season. In the end they won without him, but they had to go through some growing pains before they got over his loss. I really like this set if you can’t tell already. I have four more of these cards to release as the days go by. (more…)


1985 Topps – Alejandro De Aza 2

Last year I made the first card of Alejandro De Aza as a member of the Charlotte Knights. The few times that I have seen him play I was impressed by his speed. He was brought up by the club as a September call up. I took this picture during the last game of the season as De Aza was trying to run out a grounder. I had a couple of good ones of him from my trip to Detroit, but this one just looked better on the card. (more…)


2011 csd Super Bowl – A.J. Hawk

Since my Packers are in the Super Bowl today I thought I would make a few cards to commemorate the day. I cheated and just used the template for the 2011 baseball set. I made a few modifications so that it would work for football I was a little leery of the football in the upper corner, but just went with it. Overall I like how the cards turned out. I have a few that I made that I will put out as the day goes on tomorrow. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Sergio Santos

One of the best surprises of last season for the White Sox was pitcher Sergio Santos. Sergio was originally a shortstop that was converted to pitcher. The thought was that he needed some time in the minors, but that proved not to be the case. Sergio came up right away and produced for the Sox. He was lights out from the start, and really did not taper off as the season ended. He will be expected to contribute big this season. (more…)
