1986 Topps – Jason Varitek

With all the talk about Jason Varitek retiring tomorrow I thought that I would post a card that I made of him last season. This card was made with the intention of releasing it on the 25th anniversary of the Red Sox game six. Of course that never happened so I had it available to release today.  (more…)

1986 Topps – Carlton Fisk Tribute (1980-1982)

Here is yet another card in the mock Carlton Fisk tribute that I made up. This card might not have been made yet if not for the Gary Carter tribute set that I made upon learning of his death. It was with that set that I made the decision to leave out the All Star and other special cards in order to keep things running a little better. I did include the ’81 Topps traded card of Carlton though. He did play for the White Sox in ’81 so it had to be there. Where things would have started getting tricky was in 1982 with the In Action and All Star cards that Topps put out. I think that for now those were best left off of the card.  (more…)


1986 Topps – Marco Scutaro

I have been a fan of Marco’s ever since I saw the documentary A Player to be Named Later that showed life in the minors. I really watched the movie because it followed the Indianapolis Indians for a season. I loved it, and Marco was one of the few players in it who made it to the bigs. This was my first chance to photograph him last August so of course I made a couple cards using his pictures. I was going to release them as part of a series of posts in October celebrating the 25th anniversary of the ’86 World Series, but that never panned out. It finally makes it on here today. (more…)


1986 Topps – Ryan Lavarnway

Last season I saw Ryan have a great game against the Indianapolis Indians. Just the fact that he was a catcher was going to get him a couple of cards on this site, but the great game sealed the deal. Part of the fun of this site is seeing my favorite cards from my childhood with current players on them.  (more…)


1986 Topps – Carl Crawford

This is the first of a few cards of Red Sox players using pictures that I took yesterday. Before the season started I knew that I wanted to make some ’86 Topps cards because of that great World Series played 25 years ago. I have a few good pictures of Carl that will make it onto this site over time I am sure. (more…)
