Andrew McCutchen 2010 Topps ’20/20′
This one is interesting as that it has kind of a ‘Sportflics’ look and feel to it. From the image that moves to the card surface that is textured, as soon as I saw this card, I thought about those great oddballs from the 1980’s.
This card of McCutchen is part of an insert set from the 2010 Topps flagship set. The subset is tagged as ’20/20′ and it featured 20 young ‘up and coming’ players that were geared to be stars during the next decade.
I am happy to say that Topps predicted properly and included Andrew McCutchen in the set.
Here is his card:
I had to go back and find the checklist to see how well they did with the other players that were included on the checklist. And for the most part, they got it right. They had Kershaw, Price, Posey, Longoria, and Grienke on the list as well – and they’re all panning out to be solid. But, they also included Chris Coghlan, Andre Ethier, and Tommy Hanson in there as well, and these guys may not be employed when the 2014 season takes flight.
