2002 Stadium Club
What a great card.
If you’ve read anything I’ve had to say about cards from the Pedro Binder, then you probably expect that I’d enjoy the Stadium Club sets.
You’d be absolutely correct.
What’s not to love? The borderless cards allow the picture to take up as much room as possible on the card. The graphics floating over the picture are always tucked away as to not interfere with the photo. And, of course, the photos are magnificent.
This is certainly noexception.
Look at that photo. I always thought Pedro had a bit of a stunted follow through. His final leg kick gave the impression that he was trying to stop halfway through. This picture shows that perfectly. I love how the background is clean. Nothing is distracting from Pedro. This picture would look great, enlarged on the wall.
As always, the Stadium Club logo is as far out of the way as it can be. Perfect. Perdro’s name and position is floating over the photo. But, not just floating. Floating in a spot with absolutely no action. It’s just covering some of the mound. Your eye is allowed to skip right over the graphic to still enjoy the photo.
I wouldn’t have expected anything less.
