1977 Topps – Melky Cabrera

This is the final Royals card for the night. I like this card for a couple of reasons. The first is that for some reason I love the card design that Topps put out in 1977. Another is the fact that you can see the special patch that Melky is wearing. For some reason the Royals cards looked pretty cool to me so I made plenty of them. I will release the rest of them at a later time, but for now enjoy this final card of the day. (more…)

1977 Topps – Brayan Pena

Here is yet another Royals card that was made for the backs of my 2011 custom cards. I really did not know who Brayan was at the time, but every catcher I saw made the set. This picture was taken on the Fourth of July as Pena was walking in from the bullpen with Jeff Francis. I used the other part of the same picture for Jeff’s ’77 Topps card. (more…)


1977 Topps – Billy Butler

I guess that I will post some of the Royals cards that I had made for the backs of my 2011 custom cards last season. I saw the Royals play the White Sox, and took a few pictures in order to make some cards. I put most of the Royals on a ’77 Topps card that I didn’t get around to releasing. (more…)


Bronzed Heroes – Frank White

I have not posted any of my bronzed heroes cards in a while. I love the idea of the set, but I have been having fun making cards that I have not made before. I decided to post a few of these today after making several yesterday. I have a knack for taking pictures of statues when I visit a new place. This set is a way of putting these pictures to use.

1977 Topps – Chris Getz

During his time with the White Sox I really learned to appreciate Chris Getz. He is not a flashy player, but he does get the job done. I was sad to see him go to the Royals, and looking back at what Mark Teahen has done for the Sox makes that trade even harder to stomach. The Sox needed to make room for Gordon Beckham though so the trade had to be done. (more…)


1977 Topps – Eric Hosmer

Part of making my 2011 custom set has been coming up with cards for my card backs. In order to make things a little easier I have now picked one set to feature for a team. For the Royals I picked the ’77 Topps set. The Royals have some young talent that I was exited to see. The two players in particular that I was excited about seeing for the first time both did things to impress me. Eric of course tied the game in the ninth inning with his home run to center field.

1976 Topps – Mike Aviles

This is a card that I made a while ago, but for some reason it has just sat in a file. As I have said many times on this blog I had some great seats last July for a game with the Royals and the White Sox. I took way too many pictures that day so it is only natural that some of them would end up on some cards. (more…)
