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…)

1987 Fleer – Justin Upton

With the Sox playing at Arizona tonight I thought that I would release a couple cards of the D-Backs. Justin Upton is one of the players that I saw playing in A-ball for the local South Bend Silverhawks. He was the #1 pick of the 2006 draft so we knew that he had the potential to be very good. He has started to show that great potential in the Majors. (more…)

2011 csd Custom – Kelly Johnson

Kelly is another player that has been in both major sets I have made. His 2010 custom card which is on the back of this one shows just his back, but I like the picture of him finishing a pop up slide so I put the picture on the card. Kelly is part of a young core in Arizona that could make some noise in the not too distant future. (more…)

2011 csd Custom – Daniel Hudson

Daniel was a top prospect in the Sox organization before being traded to Arizona last season. I was able to see him pitch a couple of times, and was looking forward to seeing him play for the Sox on a more regular basis. A deal for Edwin Jackson at the trade deadline took that possibility away. (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. For now though both teams are fine in center. (more…)

2011 csd Custom – Armando Galarraga

Last season Armando became a favorite player of mine when he was flat out robbed of a perfect game by umpire Jim Joyce. He handled the situation so well that I think most of the country enjoyed how well he handled the situation. For some reason he had trouble following that game, and was traded to Arizona in the off season. This card was part of a failed try at trying to keep the diamond in between the name and position. I only have two more of these, and I thought that I would be lazy and just post them instead of making new cards in their place. (more…)
