Countdown To 2010 – 24 Dawsons In 24 Hours – Card #13

Andre Dawson 2001 Topps – ‘Who Would Have Thought’

A very cool design option that never grows old – Before & After.

In 2001, Topps put the pedal to the metal regarding sets and subsets.  This one is titled ‘Who Would Have Thought’ and it features 2 images of Andre Dawson – 1 from his days playing in Montreal and the other from his time with the Cubs.

I love the card’s concept but I personally would have chosen 2 photos that were better linked.  Still though – great job by Topps on this one!!!

  1. I don’t know what they mean by “Who would have thought.” You can just tell by that picture of him as an Expo, he was going to be a special player. Looks like a slugger.

  2. I’m with you on the naming. Most of the players in the “Who Would Have Thought” series were highly touted guys who EVERYBODY though were going to do well.

    More fitting would be guys like Dickie Thon who started out great and was ruined by a pitch to the head, or Todd Van Poppel who was “can’t miss” and did little else. Or Jose Canseco, who had to end his career with the Newark Bears.

  3. Or every “can’t miss” Cubs prospect over the 10 years. Mark Prior, Brooks Kieschnick, Hee Chop Choi, etc.
