1989 Upper Deck – J.J. Hardy

Here is another of my ’89 Upper Deck cards that have just been sitting around. Early in 2010 I attended a White Sox game against the Twins. A group of players were warming up and I just snapped a shot of them. I think that that picture has been made into a couple of cards so far. (more…)

1984 Topps – Joe Mauer

This is yet another card that has been sitting in a folder on my computer for a while. At one point I was not working, and the cards were being made at an incredible pace. This is one from that time period. I couldn’t possibly post them all so I decided to just slowly release them. When I stopped having the time to make them I should have just kept posting the cards, but for some reason I did not. Joe should not be one of my favorite players because he is a star for a rival team. For some reason though I really enjoy watching him play. This card has two pictures from two separate occasions that make it up. The main picture was taken as Joe was jogging out to the bullpen prior to a game against the White Sox in 2009. He didn’t look up so I had to make do with what I had. The inset picture is of him warming up in the Metrodome in 2008. I loved the old school Twins uniforms, but I didn’t know enough about photography yet to make the picture as sharp as it could have been. (more…)


1952 Topps – Joe Mauer

I have had some fun making the couple of 1952 Topps cards that I have so far. I will try and get some pictures this season that fit the mold a little better. Part of the fun is trying to get the signature on the card. To start off I have just found a picture of an autographed ball online, and just pasted it into the box. This will limit who I can make cards of to who I can find a good picture of an autograph. I have a few autographed ball here at home so I guess I can make that work. Before I make any more of these I may have to find a better template. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Nick Blackburn

I saw Nick pitch last April against the White Sox. He is a solid player that makes this set once again because I liked the picture of him. It’s not that the picture is that great, but there is just something about it that I like. (more…)


2011 csd Preview – Justin Morneau

I have had the backs of the four Twins cards for this preview set made for some time. I just had to make the front of the cards. With the season underway it seemed foolish to still work on the preview set, but I wanted a couple Twins cards in the set. Since I see so much of them it seemed weird that they wouldn’t be in this set. (more…)


1988 Donruss – Jim Thome

Continuing the recent theme of former Sox players we have a card of Jim Thome. Being a lefty myself I really enjoyed watching Jim during his short run with the White Sox. He is back with the Twins for his second season this year trying to surpass 600 home runs for his career. I hope he gets it, but in a losing cause for the Twins. (more…)


1987 Topps Jim Thome

Gentleman Jim was a popular player while playing with the White Sox. His two previous stops were Cleveland and Philadelphia where he hit many home runs. As a member of the White Sox he hit #500 to win a late season game in 2007. He played two more years on the South Side before signing with the Twins last season. (more…)
