2008 Topps Mike Lowells

Topps chose an interesting picture for these cards. Mike appears to be either glaring at his bat, or at the pitcher. I’m going to assume that he wasn’t happy with a pitch that was just thrown. Either it was high and tight, or so nasty that it upset Mike. Either way, it’s a different shot. Or is it…?

Let’s take another look at the 2007 Topps card from the Red Sox highlights set. Look familiar? Yup. It’s the same picture. They at least took my advice and cropped it a little bit. It actually took me a minute to realize that it was the exact same picture. So, one picture on three cards. Lazy once again Topps. Thankfully the white regular card contrasts nicely with the red Opening Day version. So, at least they all look like their own card in a display.

Happy Mike Lowell Day!
