1989 Upper Deck – Manny Ramirez

Manny will be an interesting player to watch when his time comes for the writer’s to vote him into the Hall of Fame. He was suspended once for 50 games for violating the leagues substance abuse policy. The second time that he was caught this spring he just retired rather than face the penalty. He put up some great numbers during his career, and was one of the leagues most feared hitters during his time. The way his career ended will cost him votes from the writer’s.

2011 csd Custom – Tracy Woodson

This is yet another statue that I took a picture of that I wanted to include on a card. I will let the cat out of the bag and say that the new set will be made up of statues that I have seen. I seem to have a large number of pictures of them so I decided to make a subset out of them. That is why I was unsure if I should release some of these cards because some of them have the same pictures on them. I decided to just go for it. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Clayton Kershaw

The baseball cards are back today as the preview card of Clayton Kershaw is released. I love this card because of course I decided to show Clayton batting instead of what he should be doing. Being an American League fan I rarely get to see pitchers bat. Of course I would just have to go a little more north to see it, but I enjoy watching people at the plate who can hit. (more…)
