2011 Just Fair: Prince Fielder   Leave a comment

Brewers Prince Fielder Just Fair custom cardIt’s been way too long since I posted a “Just Fair” card. I chose Prince Fielder because I am locking him in as my winner in tonight’s home run derby. I’m thinking he’ll end up beating Robinson Cano in the finals and end up with about 26 home runs.

I will post another Just Fair card with my All-Star MVP pick tomorrow. Any guesses at the derby or All-Star MVP?

So it has been a long while since I posted some new Just Fair cards. I chose a couple pitchers at random today, no real reason for them in particular. My last Just Fair post was over two weeks ago. So if you had 85 cards in the pool of when I would get tired of the cards you have won. With this addition I have 87 cards in the set. My goal was to have a big set by the end of the season, obviously that isn’t going to happen. I will try to keep going with them to give my site so diversity from being an all Royals site be I really don’t know how many more I will do. I have other projects that interest me a lot more right now.

Custom Card of the Day: 1985 Topps Josh Hamilton, Just Fair Josh Hamilton   7 comments

Josh Hamilton is back! This guy really changes the way the Rangers lineup looks. I saw the Ranger play in Kansas City a couple weeks ago and both Hamilton and Cruz were hurt and their lineup was not near as scary. Both are back now and Hamilton will try to drive toward another MVP season. He has won one MVP even after being injured a month, why not do it again? He can flat out hit, he is at .339 in a small sampling of games but who know what he can do playing at the Ballpark at Arlington.

I wanted to do something different today so I went with a custom card of Hamilton and one of my Just Fair cards of Hamilton. Ironically both have black borders, not planned I promise. The custom card is not only an old design, it is a football design. This was 1985 Topps’ version of a football set. I posted a bunch of Kansas City Chiefs from this set a while back. I think it is interesting seeing the Rangers in both their blued and red uniforms side by side, they look like completely different teams.
