“Let me see if I got this right. You buy low grade

beat up cards and feature them on your blog.

That’s awesome. Totally different than all the

other blogs I have seen featuring the nicest cards.”


1971 Topps Hoyt Wilhelm

Just sayin'.

I've got a box full of poor old baseball cards that will eventually make their way to this blog.

While thumbing through the cards earlier in the day, this Hoyt Wilhelm caught my eye. Then I started to laugh. I thought to myself: "He's doing the Captain Morgan pose."

About 20 minutes later, with the help of Photoshop, this is what I came up with.

Just sayin'.

Totally worth it! Wonder how many other gents are out there striking the pose?

Very cool. I'm usually not one for peoples on-line blog home-made cards but that is a keeper. Most of the time bloggers will post their photoshop cards to say "this is what so-and-so's 1960whatever card should have looked like" and they muddle their description so much it's confusing as to if it was a real card or not, especially when they post it along with a mail-day or mention a trade they recently made.

That is awesome! That is the best custom card i have seen in a long time, I love it! I always suspected the knuckle ball was a by-product of too much spiced rum in the bullpen anyway...
