Baseball card blog focusing on 1971 Topps, cards of catchers and the Colorado Rockies, sometimes drifting of into other areas or sports.

RLC Custom Card Project: Blaine Neal
Plagued by arm trouble and inconsistency, Blaine Neal managed to appear in 113 career MLB games from 2001-2005, with the 2002 season being his career highlight going 3-0 with a 2.73 ERA over 32 games with the Marlins. His final 11 games would come with the Rockies, finishing with a 1-2 record and a 6.14 ERA for Colorado. He would pitch professionally until the 2010, as well as with Team USA in the 2008 Olympics, but wouldn't return to the majors.
I thought I had posted a 1973 Custom before, but what better time than with Heritage coming out recently. I stayed pretty loyal, but used a different position icon, as I like this one better.
