Custom Card of the Day: 1978 Topps Matt Cassel   Leave a comment

Matt Cassel 1978 Topps custom card

It’s a lonely, lonely place at AHairOffSquare with no baseball. I thought football could get me through the winter but I’m just not feeling it. Spring Training is coming soon! Here is a football card I made last year. I love the card design, so simple but classy looking. The colors on the picture really make the card pop too. I like this 1978 Topps football card a lot.

1983 Topps custom card: Kanekoa Texeira and Bruce Chen   Leave a comment

Here are a couple more 1983 Topps cards. Kanekoa Texeira did pitch for the Royals this year but has since been sent to Omaha the claimed off waivers by the Yankees. I wish him the best of luck even though he is in the Yankees organization. It seems like months since Bruce Chen has pitched. He has been on the disabled list for a while now and the Royals are all of the sudden very thin in the rotation. Putting 3 of 5 of your starters on the disabled list will do that. Starting rotation was: Hochevar, Francis, Davies, Chen, O’Sullivan and now is Hochevar, Francis, Paulino, Duffy, Adcock/Mazzaro? The Royals had really good luck with injuries but now all of this has gone down and even worse than all of this shining prospect John Lamb has to have Tommy John surgery.
