Horizontal cards to start. A pair of nice stadium shots and a pair of great defensive plays. Of course I'm partial to the shot of Tex warming up at Yankee Stadium, but the shot of Springer prepping for an at-bat at home is pretty nice too.
Another Yankee Stadium shot. It would have been perfect for last year's set as it was Ellsbury's first season playing in the bright lights of New York. I thought the Adams and Giambi were great photos. The Donaldson is a gold parallel...totally pointless, but a great pic. The Gordon insert doesn't really have any redeeming quality in my eyes. I'll be hoping I avoid this insert set as I bust more packs. Eck x 2!!! How awesome is that? By far the best card of this scan, but not nearly the best I pulled.
A few dominating pitchers from different decades. I'm loving the photo of a young and spry Iron Horse(still not the best card I pulled).
Say hey! Now here's an insert set I can get behind. I mean, die-cut Legends? What's not to like?
I've made you wait long enough. Here's the best card I pulled:
When I saw this, my jaw dropped. Granted, I've only seen a small percentage of the set so far(in hand and in various posts), but this one is going to be hard to beat for best card of the set. Here you have the players who broke each league's color barrier standing side by side presumably exchanging trade secrets. Just an incredible image. Way to go Topps!
