1990 Upper Deck – Justin Smoak

Here is another card that I made with a picture of Justin that I took earlier this season. I really liked his swing, and took a few pictures of it. I thought that the two pictures that I wanted to use would look good on an early Upper Deck template. (more…)


1989 Upper Deck – Justin Smoak

Earlier this season I saw the Mariners play a game against the White Sox. I had heard so much about Justin Smoak that I was intrigued to watch him play the last couple of seasons. He was a very highly thought of prospect that is finding his way in the bigs right now. I thought I would make a couple of Upper Deck cards with some of the pictures that did not make it onto his ’11 custom card. (more…)


1985 Fleer – Carlos Peguero

Carlos worked his way onto this site. I had never heard of him until yesterday. He was taking some balls in left field when I noticed him during batting practice Wednesday. When he came up to the plate in BP he was the only one in his group going yard. I would only pay attention when he came up, but he was hitting the balls way too far to my left for me to get to. Then he hit one right at me. I only had to move a row or two down, and I put my mitt up and had my first MLB ball of the season. (more…)


1985 Fleer – Ichiro Suzuki

Last night I was at the Mariners game against the White Sox. I have always liked watching Ichiro play so I thought that he should be the first card that I put out from the game. I like the ’85 Fleer Mariners card so I decided that all the cards I need to make should be from that set. (more…)


1989 Upper Deck – Miguel Olivo

Miguel was a very solid catcher for the White Sox. He was traded to the Mariners in the deal that brought Freddy Garcia to the Sox. He has since been on a few teams in the Majors. This past off season had to be weird for him. He was traded to the Blue Jays who then declined his 2011 option making him a free agent. The Mariners then signed him, and that is where he is now playing. Must be strange to get traded to a team who then does not pick up the option to keep you. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Miguel Olivo

I have been a fan of Miguel’s ever since he was a member of the White Sox. His grand slam against the Cubs is still ingrained in my mind. Miguel has since played for several teams. I have seen him on a couple of those. He is a solid catcher, and it seems teams recognize that as he is never without work. He has signed on to play with the Mariners this season going back to a former team. I may have to go and see a game or two when they come to town. (more…)


1989 Upper Deck – Casey Kotchman

As long as I am posting some cards with interesting pictures I thought that I would post this one of Casey Kotchman. Last year when he was playing for the Mariners I caught him stretching in a weird pose. When going through my pictures looking for interesting pictures I saw this one, and thought of an Upper Deck card right away. (more…)
