merging my pictures and cards

1986 Topps – Derrick Gordon

I have been to four Railcats games this season and Derrick has started three of them. The last game I saw he got the win despite a shaky first inning. That will be the last time that I see him in a Railcat uniform though. He was traded yesterday for a local arm. The player they received is from my area so I can’t complain, but I thought that I would get some cards out for Gordon since I enjoyed watching him pitch. (more…)

2011 csd Custom – Carlos May

When I read that the Railcats had Carlos May coming to their stadium it made my choice of games to attend very easy. I did not know too much about the former outfielder, but a quick look at his life on and off the field made me an instant fan. He was a good ballplayer that during his career lost the thumb on his throwing hand while in the Marine Reserves. He came back and was once again an all star. He was a bright spot on some teams that needed them in the 70’s on the South Side. (more…)


2011 csd Custom – Louis Ott

This will be the first of probably two cards in this set for Louis. I saw him play in an exhibition game for the Railcats before this season started. During the first series of the season on the road he was traded to Winnipeg. The Goldeyes had a need for a third baseman after Amos Ramon (who is already in the set) went down with an injury. As I said in the previous post Louis is very versatile, and can play any position in the field. He will be missed in Gary. As I said to start this off I will probably make two cards of Louis in this set. When he comes back to Gary as a Goldeye I will have to get a picture of him to put in the set. (more…)


1989 Upper Deck – Jay Pecci

At least right now Jay is no longer a member of the Railcats. The way rosters change for Gary though I will not be sure who is really on this team until just before the season starts. The roster on the website last year didn’t seem to be updated too often until just before the season. (more…)
