Dustin Pedroia 2011 Topps Allen & Ginter ‘Hometown Heroes’

Dustin Pedroia 2011 Topps Allen & Ginter ‘Hometown Heroes’

The ‘Hometown Heroes’ subset that is part of the A&G brand is a fun one.  I like the thought of the set, and for the most part, the execution is solid.

This is Dustin Pedroia’s card from the 2011 subset:

As you can see, there is a flag that is firmly planted in the land in which Dustin Pedroia calls home in California.

Again, I like the theme of the set, and the design accomplishes the theme.

However, I also think it would be neat to see a card featuring some kind of local restaurant sign that reads ‘Home Of XXXXX’.  I think that’d be pretty cool too.

Still, I am digging this card – just offering a glimpse of ‘what could have been’…
