Yesterday I shared some American League All-Stars custom cards from my 2014 TSR set. Today I’ll get on to the National League…
Daniel Murphy is the Mets’ sole All-Star, and I don’t have a problem with that. I don’t think the Mets are worthy of more than one slot, and Murphy is the guy.
Anybody in the hobby has to be happy for fellow card collector Pat Neshek making the All-Star team.
Paul Goldschmidt is here because he would be the MVP of my fantasy baseball team, if MVP’s were given out midseason… and for fantasy teams.
We conclude this collection of customs with the Phillies’ lone All-Star, Chase Utley. Making a custom Utley is the least I can do for Jim of The Phillies Room, seeing as he’s given my customs additional exposure beyond the hallowed walls of this blog.
…either that or I’m a sell-out, however you want to look at it.
Besides, I can’t see Chase Utley without thinking of the Homer Simpson line from a few All-Star games ago: “Chase Utley? Why would I want to do that?”
Last Minute Additions:
The following two players were among those added to the NL team on Sunday…
Tyler Clippard is the one active representative of the Nationals, and I would’ve preferred to use a shot where he has his glasses on, but one must make compromises for one’s art.
Alfredo Simon has the same name as this guy who used to pitch for the Orioles, but that guy sucked…
…What’s that? It is the same guy? Oh. Good for him, I guess.
What National League player do you think should’ve been named to the All-Star team? Do you think Jeff Samardzija should be allowed to play, or is it all good because he can hang out with all the other pitchers who were named but don’t pitch because they just pitched the other day?
