1977 Topps – Melky Cabrera

This is the final Royals card for the night. I like this card for a couple of reasons. The first is that for some reason I love the card design that Topps put out in 1977. Another is the fact that you can see the special patch that Melky is wearing. For some reason the Royals cards looked pretty cool to me so I made plenty of them. I will release the rest of them at a later time, but for now enjoy this final card of the day. (more…)

1977 Topps – Jeff Francis

When I saw the Royals play the White Sox on the Fourth of July Jeff was the starting pitcher. This is the same picture that I used for the previous card of Brayan Pena.  (more…)


1977 Topps – Brayan Pena

Here is yet another Royals card that was made for the backs of my 2011 custom cards. I really did not know who Brayan was at the time, but every catcher I saw made the set. This picture was taken on the Fourth of July as Pena was walking in from the bullpen with Jeff Francis. I used the other part of the same picture for Jeff’s ’77 Topps card. (more…)


1977 Topps – Billy Butler

I guess that I will post some of the Royals cards that I had made for the backs of my 2011 custom cards last season. I saw the Royals play the White Sox, and took a few pictures in order to make some cards. I put most of the Royals on a ’77 Topps card that I didn’t get around to releasing. (more…)


1975 Topps – Bruce Chen

Here is another color combination I came up with for the ’75 Topps tribute cards I have been making. This was a color combination that I am not too fond of, but for some reason I like how this card turned out. It has a very nice balance to it for some reason. (more…)


1987 Topps – Mike Aviles

Mike was a player that for some reason I got some pretty good pictures of last July. I moved around and ended up just behind the Royals dugout. I liked this picture, and made this card of Mike a while ago. As high as the bat was I thought that it could have been a ’88 Score card, but I like how this one turned out as well. (more…)


1977 Topps – Chris Getz

During his time with the White Sox I really learned to appreciate Chris Getz. He is not a flashy player, but he does get the job done. I was sad to see him go to the Royals, and looking back at what Mark Teahen has done for the Sox makes that trade even harder to stomach. The Sox needed to make room for Gordon Beckham though so the trade had to be done. (more…)
