Here's Jason Heyward from the 2011 Topps team set. I found mine at Target, they should also be readily available at Wally World or online if you are fortunate enough not to live in Atlanta.Whoops, did I just misplace an un? No matter.
I'm thinking this shot has to be posed. Jason just looks too lackadaisical out there. Maybe it's a shot taken during warm-ups. I like seeing a real Rookie cup on the card. I was disappointed that Tommy Hanson didn't even get a fake tin cup on last year's card.
The Fox Sports South ad on the scoreboard in the background causes me some heartburn. Late last year, we cut out everything but the basic channels from our cable package. This was not a problem in November because I rarely watch anything on TV anyway. If it wasn't on Netflix or online, I didn't really need it. Now, thanks to our local TBS station being utterly fucked all to hell by several massive corporations who don't give a shit about the Braves or Braves fans, I find myself in the awkward situation of living in Atlanta and not being able to watch the Braves on TV except for a small handful that are being shown on Peachtree TV, AKA the zombie corpse of TBS. If I moved to a different state I could give MLB.TV my money and watch it online, but the Braves games are blacked out in Atlanta. If I want to watch my Bravos on TV in Atlanta, I either have to go over to a friend or family member's house to mooch their cable or shell out more money to Comcast just so I can watch one thing. Ugh.
One other thing about this card. This is the top card in the package so it came out with two dinged corners and a scratch on the front. On any other card it would suck but on J-Hey's that's called CHARACTER, baby.
