What a clean looking card. What a nice looking picture. Sometimes, less really is more.
Now, what you think of this card really depends on what you’re looking for in a card. If you’re flipping through a stack of these cards looking for a player or team, the foil information is pretty hard to read. Likewise if you’re wondering what company produced the card, it’s a little hard to figure out with the silver. But, if you’re looking for a great photo, this card is for you. There’s no border to detract from the picture. There’s no splashy graphic to detract from the picture. All the required information is hidden at the bottom out of the way. What a great idea. It’s all about the picture. And, it’s quite the picture. Johnny Damon is in his crisp white uniform. The shining sun makes the white really stand out. The green wall in the background does nothing to distract from Damon. He has his shades on, looking for the ball as he reaches out his glove.
I wonder if he made the catch.
