2011 Gypsy Queen – Sammy Sosa

I thought I would try an older picture with this set. This picture was taken with a camera that was not that great. The picture looks a little weird, but it is not too far off. I thought that it would be interesting to see how the lower quality pictures did with this set. (more…)

1981 Topps – Gordon Beckham

While this is not the first 1981 Topps card I have made it is the first White Sox card. I made a terrible effort at a Sammy Sosa Rangers card a while back. The Sosa card was made with a bad image, and I didn’t feel the need to re-do it. I think that experience caused me to shy away from trying another ’81 Topps card. I found a great custom by Steve at White Sox Cards that seemed like one I could use to make this card. It was a Mark Teahen birth years card that I made into my White Sox template. It worked very well I think, and I would like to make a few more. (more…)


1981 Topps – Sammy Sosa

This card is a little rough, but then agan so was the end of Sammy’s career. Sammy was the king of Chicago before the 2004 season rolled around. A corked bat and an early flight out of town sent him out of town on a sour note. It really is too bad so see how the fans turned on him. This picture of Sammy was taken in 2007 when his Rangers were in town to play the White Sox. It was one of two attempts he made to regain his former form. He had a decent 2007, but would not play baseball again. It will be interesting to see how the Hall of Fame voters treat him. (more…)
