2007 Topps '52 Rookie Card

Since this set envelops itself in the same delicious packaging material as '07 Heritage (my first post, I believe), I couldn't help from picking a few packs of these up.

Let's tear in


Top to Bottom:
5 Troy Tulowitzki (Off to a good start.)

36 Brett Carroll (This guy's mug is no day at the beach. I wonder if he's related to Jamey Carroll, the ex-Rockie, now-Indian, who's in the running for the ugliest current baseball player.)

38 Nick Gorneault
DD2 Dynamic Duos Joba Chamberlain & Phil Hughes (Sweet! An insert Joba!)

170 Justin Upton
123 Rick Vandenhurk

Now that that's over, let's discuss how ugly Jamey Carroll is. The first thing that comes to mind is "Andy-Richter-with-his-face-caught-in-a-face-smooshing-vice." From there it moves into Munchkin territory, though I'm not quite sure why. Maybe I just get the feeling in the back of my mind that with every at bat he's going to offer someone a membership in the Lollipop Guild. Or maybe he looked normal before, but a chance mishap at an amusement park caricature artist booth somehow switched his actual face with the airbrushed freak version, something like the premise of the John Woo's film Face/Off.

Enough of this nonsense. Pull me a Group B auto, and re-vulcanize my tires, post-haste!

Dammit, quit tempting me with this stuff... I keep seeing '52 blasters and my resolve is beginning to waver.

darkship said...

Chris Harris said...

Yeah, Always Be Collecting. But not collecting garbage like this.
