I've whined and complained enough about what I'd like to change on some of the cards that I've seen so I thought on this post I'd just post up some shots that I think are really awesome. (I only have a few cards, so the list isn't extensive.) Here is one I liked immediately when I pulled it from the pack.
This is good horizontal shot. I like that he's completely off of the ground and in front of an out of focus scoreboard. A really cool night shot. I think it looks pretty good on a black background. I wonder if their is an alternate version of this with a black border?
This is a cool card from Topps 2008. It's one of the Year in Review series featuring a specific play. This one has Fred Lewis from the Giants. I like the off-kilterness of the photo and the fake newspaper headline and zip-a-tone background. It's nifty!
Here is a shot of Roy Oswalt. I like it, but part of me wonders if it would have been better as a vertical. Oh well, the photographer captured a good expression on his face and their is little if no motion blur.
This is a cool shot of Andruw Jones from the Dodgers. I like it because the background looks sort of retro and faded. It even has an American flag in the background. Cool.
