1988 Topps – Rocky Gale

So many cards to post and so little time to do it. I made this card back in May, and still have not gotten around to posting it. It is the last of my ’88 Topps cards for the Fort Wayne Tincaps. I made these cards for the backs of my 2011 csd Custom cards. (more…)

2011 csd Custom – Kyle Gaedele (MLB Draft)

Kyle has had a few cards on this site already. It started off with him being the famous great nephew of Eddie Gaedel. After watching him a bit I knew that he would make the next step when it was time. He is only a junior, but when San Diego drafted him 203rd overall they might have just ended his career at Valpo. This is the second card already for Kyle in this set. If he ends up playing for the Fort Wayne Tincaps in the Midwest League I could possibly have three cards of him in the set. (more…)


2011 csd Custom – Matt Branham

One of the players on the Tincaps when I saw them that was high on their prospect list was Matt Branham. Guessing who will make it big at this stage is hard to due. A few players come along who scream future star, but others you just have to wait on. Matt may be one of those who we have to wait on. (more…)


2011 csd Custom – Emmanuel Quiles

Emmanuel is the backup catcher in Fort Wayne for the Tincaps. I was able to watch him a bit during both games at the Cove earlier this season. I don’t normally put the backup position players in this set. That is really true for the Midwest League. When it comes to catchers though the rules change a bit. (more…)


1988 Topps – Matt Branham

When going to see the Tincaps play in South Bend I knew that there were a few good Padres prospects on that team. The two big named outfielders were not playing. One of the pitchers though was throwing in game one. That was Matt Branham. Out of the two pitchers to go that day Matt had the worse day, but he is still thought highly off in their organization.

2011 csd Custom – Jake Blackwood

Jake is a fine young player that had a great game when his team came into town. That does not guarantee future success, but it does put him on my radar. Before a team comes into South Bend I look up the prospects for the organization to see who I should watch for. Jake was not on any of those lists for Fort Wayne. In fact not one position player in the top 30 in the organization is currently on their roster. In warmups though I thought Jake looked like a ballplayer. (more…)


1988 Topps – Jake Blackwood

Jake had a monster game in a losing effort against the Silverhawks in game one of a doubleheader. He started off with a home run, and added a double and a triple before it was all over. He did well in his only three trips to the plate, and I was left to wonder if he could have hit for the cycle if the full nine innings were played. (more…)
