I think this is a great looking card.  The coloring, with the green back drop, red jersey, pink sleeves, brown glove and yellow in the logo all work together very well.  Even if it were a standard portrait shot, the colors would make it a nice looking card, but it's about as close as you'll see to an action shot for Topps for another 18 years or so.  Add in a catcher's glove and the Cardinal jersey and it all adds up to be one of the nicer looking cards I've seen in the set.

  1. I agree, cool card. It's so different from most of the rest of the set.
