1984 Fleer Special – Pierre, Rios, Quentin

This was one of the first SuperStar Special cards that I attempted. As a kid I always looked forward to seeing who Fleer paired up on these cards every year. I don’t have the access to the players like Fleer does so I have to be a little creative when I make these cards.  (more…)

2011 csd Preview – Max Scherzer

I saw Max pitch this past Labor Day while I was in Detroit. I was going to post this the other day, but he was bombed so I decided to hold it back. (more…)

2011 csd Preview – Max St. Pierre

This is yet another shining example of a card that got into the set purely because of the picture. I like catchers to anytime I can work one in is another bonus. Normally I would not have a player with the number #63 in the set, but I guess it is my set so what the heck? (more…)

2011 csd Preview – Will Ryhmes

Will was one of the players that I saw went I went to a few Toledo Mud Hen games in 2009. I met him during a team autograph session, and he seemed like the nicest guy in the world.

1984 Fleer – A.J. Pierzynski

This is another card with a picture taken during the Labor Day game in Detroit. A.J. knocked in the winning run so he was of course the hero. As he was getting interviewed after the game I kept waiting for a shaving cream pie to come into play. It never did, but I did get this picture of A.J. during the interview. (more…)

1987 Topps – Juan Pierre

This card has a special meaning to me for a couple of reasons. One it is a cool 1987 Topps. I don’t already have a monster box full of these things so I need some more. I may have more of these than any other card. For some reason though I still like the card. (more…)
