merging my pictures and cards

1990 Donruss – Justin Morneau

I have only made a couple of this card as I didn’t think that I had the template right at the time. I wanted to make one for my look at Donruss over the years. While I was making the card of Gordon Beckham I realized that on the same picture was a good shot of Justin Morneau. I just moved the picture over and changed type to get a new card from the same picture.  (more…)

1952 Topps – Joe Mauer

I have had some fun making the couple of 1952 Topps cards that I have so far. I will try and get some pictures this season that fit the mold a little better. Part of the fun is trying to get the signature on the card. To start off I have just found a picture of an autographed ball online, and just pasted it into the box. This will limit who I can make cards of to who I can find a good picture of an autograph. I have a few autographed ball here at home so I guess I can make that work. Before I make any more of these I may have to find a better template. (more…)


1976 Topps – R.A. Dickey

I saw R.A. Dickey pitch in 2009 when we were in Minnesota as part of our summer baseball trip. I have always enjoyed watching the knuckleballer work. I have been able to see a few over the years, and I was happy to see that Dickey was brought into the game in 2009 so that I could watch another one work. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Joe Mauer

The last preview card of the 2011 set goes to Joe Mauer. I wanted to finish off this subset strong with a few good players. Since I had all the good players from the Sox in the set already I had to pick a few from other teams. Even though Joe plays for the Sox biggest rival he is still a good player and a good guy. It would be hard to top him to finish off this set. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Jeff Manship

Jeff was one of three very good pitchers on the 2006 Notre Dame staff. Tom Thornton was one of them who now pitches in Independant ball. His other counterpart Jeff Samardzija now is a relief pitcher for the Cubs. Manship has been trying to make his way onto the Twins roster for the last couple of seasons. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Nick Blackburn

I saw Nick pitch last April against the White Sox. He is a solid player that makes this set once again because I liked the picture of him. It’s not that the picture is that great, but there is just something about it that I like. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Justin Morneau

I have had the backs of the four Twins cards for this preview set made for some time. I just had to make the front of the cards. With the season underway it seemed foolish to still work on the preview set, but I wanted a couple Twins cards in the set. Since I see so much of them it seemed weird that they wouldn’t be in this set. (more…)
