RLC Custom Card Project: Chris Gissell

 The MLB career of Chris Gissell consisted of 5 games with the Rockies in late 2004, in which he gave up earned runs in all 5 games, and gave up a home run in 4 of the 5. At one point his ERA was 17.36 and it finish at 14.54. The one thing he can hang his hat on is his last game and only start in which he struck out 8 Cardinals in 4 innings, including Hall of Famer Larry Walker twice and Jim Edmonds 3 times.

Sometimes the photo limits to what design can be used, this one needed a full bleed horizontal and what better design than 2016 Stadium Club.

Clearing out the Scan Folder

 Some recent additions I have wanted to post, starting with a rare purchase from everyone's favorite auction site, I have been trying to track one of these down as I believe it is the only cardboard evidence of the Bruins 2019 Winter Classic Uniform that was work after the Classic, notice the lack of a Shamrock patch on the shoulder and obviously the date. I'm a laundry guy as you can see here.

RLC Custom Card Project: Darnell Coles

Darnell Coles forged a pretty good major league career playing in 957 games over 14 seasons, including his final MLB season consisting of 21 games with the Rockies in 1997 after spending the 1996 season in Japan. In those 21 games Coles would only start once, hitting his only Rockies home run in that game. After two months with the team, he was purchased by the Hanshin Tigers and returned to Japan to finish his career.

We are getting far enough into this project that I am doubling up on some sets, but I am pretty proud of this template so here it is
