a perfect smoltz

i know it's not the only card of john smoltz in dodger stadium, but this is my favorite. and one of my favorite cards, period.
the full bleed photo, the scoreboard, the yellow seats, the blue photographer's well, the sliver of green grass, the brown pitcher's mound. good times. usually, this angle is used for leftys, not rightys. but here, smoltz is throwing to first so we get the full frontal.

so, i really like this card. it wouldn't be the same if he were in a red sox uni, though.

I agree. What a wonderful baseball card. Stadium Club really had a nice run in the late 90's.
