Dustin Pedroia 2014 Topps Archives – Base
Yes, I am guilty. I am just getting to showing off my card of Dustin Pedroia from the 2014 Topps Archives set. And yes, I know that this set was released months ago.
As for the card, it is nice. I like the 1973 Topps design.
But, being that DP was not even born in 1973 makes this one a bit odd, especially since he is sporting a full beard in the picture that was used.
While I don’t really have a problem with him being inserted in the 1973 portion of the Archives product, I would have liked if Topps went back and found a picture from his earlier years in the majors – sans facial hair.
Have a look:
