2010 Topps Fielding Plays

Now that I've finally gotten some Series 2 Topps, I can make some more imaginative posts. Here are my favorite defensive plays by position that I have from 2010 Topps

#220 Randy JohnsonI've noticed that there are not many cards featuring defensive plays by pitchers. This is the only one I have in 2010 Topps. Looks like Randy is making a desperate play on a bunt.

#303 Chris Snyder
This is an exciting play. Snyder has thrown off his mask and is launching himself after a pop up. Watch out for the bat!

#295 Kevin Youkilis
Youk looks like he's trying to launch this throw to the moon.

#300 Chase Utley
Utley is one of the best second basemen in baseball. Here he's making a force on Reed Johnson of the Cubs while trying to avoid getting bowled over.

#549 Derek Jeter
An acrobatic move by Jeter as he leaps over a sliding Shane Victorino.

#527 Brandon Wood
The Angels Brandon Wood looks to be trying to turn a double play after a force at third.

#117 David DeJesus
DeJesus gets impressive hang time here but we can't tell if he actually caught the ball.

#547 Brett Gardner
Interesting body position as Gardner gets a bead on the ball.

#625 Grady Sizemore
Strain and concentration register on Sizemore's face as he tracks down this fly ball.

The Randy Johnson shot is especially cool; I think that was from the game where he won #300
