So many thoughts with this one card:
- Why is it that he began to get single name treatment?
- I am old enough to remember he actually had a first name
- He was a great hitter
- He will always be synonymous with the Mariners
- Man, those wrinkles around the eye may make him look old, but dude is having a good time
Always nice when you can get so much out of a single card, so happy this has a place in my collection. The story on the back is about him walking away when Ohtani first was introduced to him, only to walk a few paces as a joke and turn around to greet the new star.
We get mostly base additions from the rest of the pack with the Springer dive taking best action shot of the bunch, though Sean wins best last name in my books.
Another solid pack of 2019 Topps Opening Day - three...no four...more packs to go, can't forget that bonus pack.
