I've been seeing posts on a lot of baseball cards blogs taking the 30-Day Baseball Card Challenge. I may be a little late to the party but I thought I'd give it a go. 30 days worth of baseball card blog ideas? How can I past that up.
Here's the entire list.
#1. A card from the current year with a photo you like.
Topps #121. With about 850 cards to chose from this was harder than I thought it would be. But I eliminated Panini branded cards and parallels which reduced the choices. I narrowed it down to a couple of action shots but decided to go with this one. There are plenty of baseball cards featuring players celebrating. I may be reading this card wrong, but Santana seems to be expressing some of the fundamental frustration of baseball, watching a pop-up going nowhere.
