Eric Hosmer 1978 Topps Football custom cardI like the Matt Cassel 1978 Topps football card I did so I wanted to make it into a baseball card. I like the way it turned out and I think I may do a few more of them later. I think it could actually make a really nice whole set.

Custom Card of the Day: Aaron Crow 1984 Donruss   Leave a comment

Aaron Crow 1984 Donruss Custom CardI found this card when I was digging through my stuff today. I forgot I made a lot of these 1984 Donruss cards that were really nice. I wish this picture was cropped out just a little bit more so Crow’s hand didn’t hit the swoosh in the design though. This design would make almost any picture look nice though. One of the greatest sets of all time.

Custom Card of the Day: 1992 Fleer Jim Thome   2 comments

Jim Thome 1992 Fleer custom cardA triumphant return! Jim Thome is once again an Indian. He left the team about 10 years ago and now he is back for what is likely to be his last month as a major league player ever. It would be great if Thome could somehow lead the team into the playoffs but it is highly unlikely. The Detroit Tigers are simply a better team.

Minnesota got to benefit from Thome’s 600th home run this year then they gave him to Cleveland where the Indians will benefit from the last games of his career. This is a great way to end Thome’s career.

Custom Card of the Day: 1984 Donruss Paul Konerko   1 comment

Paul Konerko 1984 Donruss custom card Paul-Star versionHere is a special card for csd, A Paul Konerko 1984 Donruss. It is the landscape version, as an added bonus it features the fans spelling “Paul-Star” in the background. I really wanted Alex Gordon to win that vote but even I will admit Konerko deserved it more. He has better stats and I feel like the Chicago fans did a great job in promoting him for it. Alex Gordon gets major points for his defense as well but Paul Konerko flat out deserved to be in the All-Star game.

Custom Card of the Day: 1993 Triple Play Matt Joyce   Leave a comment

Matt Joyce 1993 Triple Play custom cardSo Goose Joak mentioned this set on one of my posts a few days ago so I decided to bring the design back for a custom card of the day. I decided to chose the second trending player on Yahoo’s MLB site to be the subject of the card. It was Matt Joyce of the Tampa Bay Rays. Matt Joyce was leading the league in hitting coming into Wednesday. Did you know that? I didn’t. Joyce is having a great year for the Rays and has been a big reason they are only a couple games out of first place in the toughest division in baseball.

I remember this card set, 1993 Triple Play being a big hit with me. Triple Play was a cheap alternative when cards were still cheap to buy. It was a nice looking set and it came out right around the time I started to get serious about collecting baseball cards. It is another black border which is starting to become a trend on my site, oh well, you like what you like I guess. I don’t think I had even thought about this set before Dave from Goose Joak mentioned it to me the other day. I’m glad he did, some cards seem to act as a time machine of sorts, this one did it for me.

Custom Card of the Day: Alex Gordon 1993 Donruss   2 comments

Alex Gordon 1993 Donruss custom cardThis is a card I made a while ago. I made it the same time I created the  “missing link” George Brett card from the same set. This card was made simply because I thought the picture was great.

Quick thoughts on the Royals; They won today breaking a tough couple game losing streak where Soria was horrible. Billy Butler continues to hammer the ball and not get enough credit. Chris Getz gave a glimpse of what the Royals hope he can be, great defensively and use his speed at the plate. Alex Gordon looks to be growing into a comfort zone in the leadoff spot. I think Gordon in the leadoff spot could be really interesting for the rest of this season.
