Night Owl has done several definitive posts on cropping, but when I got my cards from the JC Break in the mail this afternoon I had to throw this out there.
First up, the regular 2010 Topps.
Good photo but not great. I appreciate the action shot, the signage on the outfield wall, but there's just not enough for a solid narrative. Again: good card, I like the action, but it's not great.
Then we have 2010 Topps Chrome:
The Chrome doesn't show up well on the scan but check that out. You've got the base about a foot from CC sliding in, a shadow cast behind him, the sign in the background reading "Energy." Darn right! And well done to whomever decided to take a step back on this one and revise the card for the Chrome issue. Very, very nice.
Have a good one everybody and goodnight Pumpsie Green, wherever you are!
