Hanley Ramirez 2012 Topps Series 2 – ‘Golden Moments’
Yes, I know that he is not on ‘my team’ any longer but I had this card in transit to me before the trade. Now, I still need to decide if I want to continue to collect the player that I thought was the most important one wearing ‘my colors’…
Don’t get me wrong, I love seeing my Miami Marlins featured in all of the new baseball card releases.
But sometimes, just sometimes, the card does not really ‘belong’.
And I believe that this is one of those times.
First, let me show you the card:
Ok, it is a very nice looking card – possibly the best looking Marlins card in the 2012 Topps Series 2 release if you ask me.
But this is about the ‘fit’. And the ‘Golden Moments’ theme that this subset owns seems to have really stretched to fit a Marlins player in the set.
The card celebrates a game from August 7, 2010 in which Hanley made changes to hit batting stance and immediately started hitting again. He homered in the contest, and was also responsible for the game-winning RBI in extra innings.
A great win for the Marlins? You bet!
A ‘Golden Moment’? I don’t think so…
