2011 csd All Star Glossy – Rob Brantly

Here is yet another All Star Glossy card featuring a Midwest League All Star. I saw Rob play very early this season in South Bend. For some reason I have seen many West Michigan Whitecaps games. That day I added two more as rain allowed me to see a doubleheader. (more…)


1989 Upper Deck – Kevin Eichhorn

I took a few pictures of Kevin so that I was sure to get a good one for my set. Being the son of a former big league player I knew that he would have at least a couple of cards in the set. I had enough pictures of him that I liked though that it allowed me to make some extra cards of him. This is one of those. (more…)


2011 csd Custom – Luis Sanz

Luis is the backup catcher for West Michigan. Minor League Monday will end with this backstops 2011 custom card. Part of the fun of seeing a doubleheader in the Midwest League is that you get to see many players all in one day. Normally I would have just seen the regular catcher for West Michigan Rob Brantly. Because of the back to back games I was able to see Luis play. (more…)


1987 Topps – Rob Brantly

Rob is the catcher for the West Michigan Whitecaps. Minor League Monday continues as this ’87 Topps card of Rob is released. (more…)


2011 csd Custom – Jeff Rowland

Jeff probably would not have been in this set, but he hit a ball that landed near me for a ground rule double in the second game of a doubleheader against the South Bend Silverhawks. (more…)


1987 Topps – Luis Sanz

Minor League Monday starts off with a card of the backup catcher for the West Michigan Whitecaps. I had great seats to get some pictures of the bullpen during a doubleheader so I took full advantage of them. Being a catcher Luis gets a spot in the set. (more…)


1985 Topps Famous Lineage – Kevin Eichhorn

Kevin is the second card in the revamped Famous Lineage series. This is actually the reason I resurrected the set. I see a few kids every year in the minors who are relation to former ballplayers. Most are sons of the former players, but in order to get all the players in the set I changed the name to Famous Lineage. (more…)


2011 csd Custom – Ben Olglivie

Part of the fun of going to these minor league games is seeing some stars from the past on the field. I remember Ben as a member of the Milwaukee Brewers. He played for much of the 80’s as a member of their team. I really thought that he played longer than he did before looking him up for this card, but he did have a lengthy career. (more…)


1987 Topps – Billy Nowlin

We start off Minor League Monday with a card of one of the players that has already made his way into the Cove this season. Billy is a player who appears to have some talents at the plate. It is hard for me to judge as I only saw him play two games, but he has a great swing. (more…)


2011 csd Custom – Kevin Eichhorn

Here is the first minor league card in the 2011 set. Kevin Eichhorn is the son of former Toronto Blue Jay Mark Eichhorn. I enjoyed watching him pitch yesterday, and I still wonder why he was pulled before getting the one out that would have made him eligible for the win. I guess the pitch counts are pretty tight in the minors. (more…)
