MLB Dream Bracket Alt-Topps Cards Part 1

By now you might have seen the MLB Dream Bracket games. If not click here.  To fill the sportsless void, MLB has teamed up with Out of The Park (a baseball online sim game) and Twitch.  Twitch is apparently a network app of sorts that allows people to watch other people play video games.  (OK how many boomers have I lost so far?)  Anyway, I thought the concept was cool.  Now let's see if the execution is worth the hype.

Those of you that have been following this blog lately know that I have been making sets based on some discarded Topps prototypes. I thought I'd make some companion cards to this project using one of the discarded designs.

I will try to make 4 cards for each team using the design. One pitcher and three position players. The first game is scheduled for Monday April 20 at 10 am Eastern.  It will be the All-Time Twins versus the Blue Jays. I've made cards of Walter Johnson, Harmon Killebrew, Kirby Puckett and Joe Mauer for the Tins/Senators.  For the Jays it's Dave Stieb, the late great Tony Fernandez, Roberto Alomar and Josh Donaldson.

These were based on this discarded card:

Although the card says Jim Weaver but it is actually Carl Warwick.


  1. I am one of those boomers you lost in the first paragraph, but the cards are really nice, especially the Killebrew. I haven't watched MLB in a long time, so I don't feel the current void. My void has lasted several years and I have been filling it by buying and flipping cards and following blogs like yours.
