1985 Fleer – Chone Figgins

This is the last card of the day. I still have some cards from the ’85 Fleer set for the Mariners, but they can wait for another day. Chone is a player that supposedly Kenny Williams was high on for several years. I heard many rumors about Figgins for Konerko. Pauley is one of my favorite players so I am glad that the deal was not done. I took this picture last season as Chone was looking to bunt against the Sox.  (more…)

1985 Fleer – Michael Pineda

Michael was a good young pitcher that had just shut down the White Sox when I saw him early last season. I took a couple pictures of him to make some cards from. That worked out well because he was named an All Star, and I had the opportunity to make three cards of him. This was the card that I made to go on the back of his 2011 custom card. (more…)


1985 Fleer – Jason Vargas

Here is yet another 1985 Fleer card for this site. This was another card that was made for the back of my 2011 custom set that really never was fully released. I am sure over time that I will put that set out as well, but for now I thought that I would put out cards that were sitting in my retro folder.  (more…)


1985 Fleer – Franklin Gutierrez

Today I thought that I would release some of the Mariner cards that I made for the backs of my 2011 custom set that never really got a fair shot. For the Mariner team I made ’85 Fleer cards because I had just made a template and I really liked how they looked. When I saw the team play last season a few cards came of it. Franklin probably would not have made the set except for the fact that he was on one of my favorite cards so far. A couple of years ago I saw the Indians playing the White Sox. As part of his pregame routine Franklin stood on his head. I was lucky enough to get a picture of it, and it made an appearance on a 1989 Upper Deck card that I made.  (more…)


1985 Fleer – Erik Bedard

Here is yet another ’85 Fleer card for the Mariners. I love the design of the card, but I just never released these. They were made for the backs of my 2011 custom cards that I have yet to release as well.  (more…)


1985 Fleer – Brendan Ryan

I was very busy yesterday so I did not get around to posting any cards. I almost made it through today without getting a chance as well. I chose this card of Brendan because he became one of the players I follow after 2009. I saw him play a couple of games at Busch Stadium. He was a fan favorite at home because of his mustache. I took one of my favorite sports pictures of Brendan during a picture day at the stadium during that weekend. That picture found its way into my 2010 custom set. You can see the card and picture here. (more…)


2011 csd Custom – Felix Hernandez

I was upset earlier last week when I realized that I had a prior engagement and could not attend the Seattle game with the Sox that King Felix was pitching. I saw him pitch in 2009 and was looking forward to seeing him pitch again. I was at the game the next day though, and Felix was hanging out in the outfield during batting practice. (more…)
