This card is awesome and may be one of the most hilarious cards I have ever seen. THIS is my Mystery Science Theater 3000 take on card #173:
Jeter: "Psssst! Alex! Hey, bud....we really need you to pick it up at the plate this year - alright?"
A-Rod: "(sniff)....I know, man....I'm sorry, Captain. I've got a new knee now, but I could never be
you! This is like Mantle and Maris ALL over again!" hangs head in shame
Robbie: "Listen to these clowns! I'll keep doing what I do.....where's my Dad sitting, anyways?"
I love it. And you know what else I love about Heritage? The backs. Topps seems to spend a lot of time on the backs of this release and I, for one, appreciate that. I'll show more shots of the backs for these cards than I normally do and here is the first:
|Love 'em or hate 'em - they are pretty solid.|
|Welcome to the ROCK!|
|It's still cool to leave the stickers on your hat?!|
|My first fantasy draft pitcher selection?|
|Look up 'baseball' in the dictionary and you'll see THIS guy!|
|Got thrown out of a bar by Kate Upton; +2,000 COOL points!|
And some more Yanks (bare with me, you guys).......
|3,088 and counting!|
|I'd smile too, if I were on this mini peel-off!|
|Welcome to the American League, Hombre!|
|Love the bleachers and palm tree behind Spahn!|
|This is what a "Then & Now" card should look like!|
|It's great to see him smile - I'm rooting for ya, Donnie!|
|Speaks for itself. Really epic card for us Yankee fans.|
|C-Grand & Floating Heads!|
|Boy, do I remember THOSE 2 home runs!|
