2007 Topps '52 Rookies Yet Again

I guess this is the set that won't go away for me, but that's what you get when there are only 6 cards to a pack.

Let's tear in.

Top to Bottom:
63 Eulogio De La Cruz

104 Clay Rapada (Sounds like PaRappa the Rapper. As a Cub, this chump's probably better off battling a guy with an onion head. Time for a career change, Clay.)
DF5 Gary Sheffield Debut Flashbacks

182 Shelley Duncan
111 Cory Doyne (I know dayf already got this card, but the glove is so nice, ya gotta show it twice.)

154 Terry Evans (That's weird. According to the backs of these cards, each of these last three guys chose to go by their middle name over their first name, even though their nomenclature of choice is more feminine than their first name. Shelley, Cory, and Terry could have been David, Michael, and Michael, respectively.)

Grade: C
The Sheffield, an insert that should actually improve the overall quality of a pack, serves to drag it down a notch. The guy is a loser who has no pride. Milwaukee wasn't good enough for him, so he chose not to play hard. That's about all that needs to be said about him. I'll quietly suppress the urge to deface this card. If you want to see more of that kind of thing, check out the ever-growing selection of genuine doctored cards on my own site.
