1987 Fleer – Russell Branyan

Russell is slugger for sure. He is not in the game for his defense. He is in the game to hit the longball. I made this card last summer to go on the back of my 2011 custom card. Part of the tough part about that card was that I had to make cards for the back. It was a long process that in the end made the set fail. I loved how it looked, but it took way too much time to make.  (more…)

1987 Topps – Dan Haren

I like this set, and thanks to the snowpocolypse I have many of them sitting in a folder waiting to be showcased on this site. Dan is no longer with the Diamondbacks, but he was their ace for a few years. He was part of the draw when I went to see Arizona at Wrigley last season. He is now with the Angels so he has not changed colors too much. (more…)

1987 Topps – Ryan Roberts

Ryan is a player that normally would not be on this site. I don’t know too much about him even though he is on the Diamondbacks. I saw him hit a home run live though so he will get this card as well as a card in the ’11 custom set. I love this ’87 Topps design so I have used it here and there for my cards that will go on the back of the custom set for this year. It is a simple design, but I think that it has held up well.

2011 csd Custom – Henry Blanco

I posted my 1991 Fleer card of Henry a couple of days ago so that I could post this card of him. I watched him play for the Cubs for a while, and that fact alone gets him in this set. Henry has had a nice career as a backup catcher. You are playing the hardest position on the diamond, but then again you really aren’t playing it all that much. Not a bad gig. (more…)

1991 Fleer – Henry Blanco

Henry has had a very nice career as a backup catcher. For years he was the personal catcher for Greg Maddux. He is now the backup catcher for the Diamondbacks. (more…)

2011 csd Custom – Xavier Nady

I was able to watch Xavier a bit last season when he was a member of the Cubs. He really seemed as if he was maybe playing past his time. The Cubs really didn’t have a spot for him except as a pinch hitter and an occasional defensive replacement. From what I saw in the outfield he should not be out there very often. (more…)

1984 Topps – Justin Upton

This is yet another card that was made during the ‘snowpocolypse’ while I was snowed in. I was extremely bored so I went through some of my older pictures looking for cards. I loved the 1984 Topps set because it was the first card that I ever collected. The trouble was that I needed a close of up the head for the inset picture. I could only make cards of players that I have seen up close. (more…)
