So part-time blogger Ben Henry has asked his “readers” the question, “Can you top Topps?”.
I am pretty sure I have been able to top Topps since the mid-80’s when I received my first pack of crayons. This really is not much of a challenge seeing as 95% of their card is the photograph. I too have taken this challenge and designed my very own baseball card, which I doubt will see the light of day at ‘The Baseball Card Blog’.
Now, you might be wondering where did I find such a great photo of Jose’s twin brother, Ozzie Canseco. Well, it just so happens that every Monday morning he stands out in front of my local Publix super market with a bunch of his ’89-’92 baseball cards and offers to sign them for the kids with a personal inscription, “Jose’s better half, only half better!”.
As you can see by the very classy Topps sticker, this is an autographed insert placed in packs of Topps series 6 and sold exclusively through Rent A Centers in the Pompano Beach area. Feel free to print out this beauty and send it to Topps so they can see what a real baseball card looks like!
