Custom Card of the Day: 1971 Topps Dustin Ackley / Michael Pineda Rookie Stars   Leave a comment

Dustin Ackley Michael Pineda 1971 Topps Rookie StarsI did another 1971 Topps rookie stars card of a couple of the Royals guys here. This card is for the Mariners fans who are having a tough year. These two guys have been bright spots. Michael Pineda might even be the Rookie of the Year in the American League. It is tough this year but Pineda was dominant for much of the year.

Custom Card of the Day: Hosmer / Moustakas1971 Topps Rookie Stars   1 comment

Eric Hosmer / Mike Moustakas 1971 Topps Rookie Stars custom cardI recently picked up a couple Paul Splittorff rookie cards and immediately thought of doing this with the design. Splittorff’s rookie was the nice black 1971 Topps set. He was on a dual rookie stars card with Jerry Cram. I couldn’t resist the urge to do this card with Mike Moustakas and Eric Hosmer. Right now Hosmer is a lot more of a rookie star than Moustakas but they are both everyday players in the major leagues and are well deserving of this card.
