2011 csd Preview – Joe Girardi

I still remember when Joe came up with the Cubs. It really does not seem like that long ago, but it actually has been. Since then he has had a good career followed up by a good managing career.

2011 csd Preview – Jorge Posada

Jorge has been the catcher for the Yankees for a while now. When you have thought of the Yankees catcher his name has been the first to come to mind for years now.

One of the most popular players in the Majors right now is Derek Jeter. Some of it is because he plays in New York, but he has done quite a bit in the World Series to warrant the attention.

2011 csd Preview – David Wright

I have been having fun making cards for each team. With all the snow on the ground there really is not a whole lot going on. I took this picture in 2008 when we made our trip to New York to see both ballparks before they were torn down. I was pretty far away from David, so I was surprised at how well the picture looks on the card. Usually the long shots don’t blow up so well. I guess the conditions were perfect for my camera settings that day. (more…)
