The Player: Harvey Pulliam signed with the Rockies as a free agent in from the Padres, and having previously playing in the majors for the Royals in parts of the 1991-1993 seasons. He would debut with the Rockies in September of 1995, reach the majors again in 1996 and set a career high with 59 MLB games in 1997. Probably best remembered by Rockies fans for leading the PCL (AAA) in home runs with 25 and RBI with 91 helping the team win the league Championship. After the 1997 season he was traded to Arizona, but ending playing out his career with stops in the Japan, Korea and Mexico.
The Card: 1990 Upper Deck Hockey, what do you really need to say about Upper Deck from this era, you can pretty much start the "modern" era with when Upper Deck started making cards. A beauty of a design that still stands up 30 years later.
The Project: The Project: Rockies Legacy Collection custom project to make digital cards of Rockies players who never had one issued.
Great custom. I don't think I have ever seen the 1990 UD hockey design before. I recognized it immediately as looking like early Upper Deck, but didn't know where exactly it came from. Now that I am back around Blogger, I am going to take the time to search your Archives to see the rest of the Rockies that were cardless. I do know the hardest photo to find will be Robin Jennings who was a Rockie for literally one day before being traded.ReplyDelete
Love this custom, 1990-91 UD is one of my three favorite hockey sets ever and you did a fantastic job with this. I'd be happy to see more baseball players in this design.ReplyDelete
