1915 Cracker Jack – Derek Jeter

Last winter I tried to make some older cards. This is one of those that I tried. I made a Paul Konerko version and this one at the same time. I realized that I really needed to do some tweaking on this one, but thought that since this is how I made it then it should get released that way. I like the idea of the set, and will work on this one a little before putting another one out. (more…)

1989 Upper Deck – Curtis Granderson

Curtis is one of the good guys in baseball. I have seen him play a few times, and he always seems to enjoy what he is doing. He even takes the time to interact with the fans. He is another guy who just seems to ‘get it.’ (more…)


2011 csd Preview – A.J. Burnett

A.J. is someone that I may have had a misconception about before this post. I thought that he was always on the DL, but looking at his stats I can see that is not always the case. I guess his missing the 2003 has just stuck in my mind for some reason. He is a very good pitcher that continues to baffle hitters in New York. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Brett Gardner

Brett made this set because of his great story. He was not picked by the coach at the walk on tryouts at the College of Charleston. He came the next day in his high school uniform refusing to be told no. The coach let him practice with the team, and he eventually started for three seasons. The fact that he was not even thought of as a walk on while at a small school makes the fact that he made the big leagues that much better. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Boone Logan

I have always enjoyed players with interesting names. One of those is Boone Logan. He just sounds like he should be in our history books on the frontier. He is another former Sox player that makes the set for that reason. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Francisco Cervelli

I saw Cervelli last season when the Yankees were in Chicago. He is a talented young catcher that is sitting right now on the depth chart behind Russell Martin and Jorge Posada. The Yankees might have the most depth at catcher right now. With Posada aging Cervelli was scheduled to be the backup to Martin coming into the season. Of course things change quickly, and a foot injury has put Cervelli behind this spring. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Ivan Nova

As it says on the back of the card I had never heard of Ivan before he pitched against the White Sox last August. After the game though I knew a lot more about him than I would have liked. He pitched a very good game against them, and may have a spot in the rotation this season. (more…)
