2014 Spirit Base Series 1: 41-50

#41 Matt Dominguez
I definitely knew Dominguez's photo was going to be a batting shot. Fielding was not an option.

#42 Lorenzo Cain
Cain had a lot more acrobatic catches but I went with one that actually shows his face.

#43 Hank Conger

#44 Yasiel Puig
Even as a Giants' fan, I can't help but be fascinated by Puig. I decided to go with a shot that's more 'vivacious' than 'hotdoggy,' though there were plenty of examples of the latter.

#45 Steve Cishek
I really hope the Marlins wear their orange jerseys more often in 2014. Having so much uniform black really clashes with the bright team colors on the card design.

#46 Kyle Lohse

#47 Ryan Doumit
Of all the red and blue teams in the MLB, I think I dig the Twins' hues the most.

#48 Zack Wheeler
I appreciate Wheeler's facial hair matching the team colors.

#49 Derek Jeter
Hey, look, his card number matches his age! (kidding, kidding)

#50 Sonny Gray
This card has necessitated the most Photoshop work for me thus far. Oakland's green is really far more dull than the green here but I can't help but tweak it. The green and gold combo is hard to beat.


  1. Great looking cards! I'm now following your blog and can't wait to see more of your work!

  2. Sure, you pick a Twin that isn't on the team any more! lol

    1. Dammit, when did this happen? I need to fix that.
