1985 Topps Famous Lineage – Dan Dierking

I really don’t know how I missed this one for so long. I enjoyed watching Dan play for the Boilers for four years. At first we just enjoyed watching him on the kickoff team seemingly making every tackle. Because of injuries his senior year he had a much bigger role on offense. Of course then the injury bug hit him, and I don’t think he was running on all cylinders as the season ended. Of course who is? He was still fun to watch play, and makes a great addition to the Famous Lineage set. (more…)


1984 Topps – Kory Sheets

I really enjoyed watching Kory during his time at Purdue. He provided many great memories during his four year run.This card keeps the countdown going a bit leading up to the 8:00 kickoff against Notre Dame. (more…)


1985 Topps – Rob Henry

I finally have internet access again although it is only a one day deal. I hopefully will be back up and running by tomorrow. I have been gone it seems like forever. In that time one of the highlights of this upcoming football season has now gone away. Rob Henry went down with a torn ACL yesterday in practice. Last season he came out of nowhere to provide a lot of excitement right away. His fleet feet behind center gave Purdue its first road win against a ranked opponent in his first start at Northwestern. I will be sad that he isn’t on the field this season, but I am still excited for the football season that will start in a little over a week. (more…)


1989 Hoops – JaJuan Johnson

The celebration of the two Purdue draft picks continues with this ’89 Hoops card. I picked this card for a couple of reasons. One of them is that this was the year that I probably had the most cards. I love this simple design. It is one of the favorites of my childhood. The other reason is that this is the birth year of JaJuan Johnson. He was taken with the 27th overall pick in the NBA Draft last night by the Nets, and then traded to the Boston Celtics. (more…)


2011 csd Custom – David Miller

The Purdue game against the Boilers will start shortly, and since I will be there I thought I would have this card post near the start time. The Boilers are in the midst of the Big Ten race, and this weekend series against their rivals the Hoosiers will go a long way towards decided how it turns out. (more…)


1989 Pro Set – Ryan Kerrigan

I have made a couple of cards in honor of Ryan Kerrigan getting drafted. He was Purdue’s highest pick since 1987 so I thought that merited a few cards. This last one is modeled after the ’89 Pro Set draft cards. A lot of good names were in the original set so the cards are ingrained in my head. When I thought about doing this I knew that I had to make one. I just took my template from the Packer cards I have been making, and altered it a bit. I took the #1 pick section from a Troy Aikman card. This was a rush job so I left the Pro Set name on the card there. (more…)


1990 Score Rookie – Ryan Kerrigan

Since Ryan was drafted 16th last night by the Redskins I thought I would make a couple of cards for him. For some reason the only time I make football cards is when something big happens. When the Packers were in and won the Super Bowl I made a bunch of cards some of which have not been released yet. I may make a few of the Purdue players that I have watched as they find pro teams over the next few days. (more…)
