i'm ready for the update

so we've seen what 2012 topps will look like.  yawn.  i still need some 2011 topps update.

i've been waiting patiently for tony gwynn jr and matt guerrier to get some topps dodger love.  checking the checklist at baseballcardpedia, i see that gwynn and guerrier will be joined by jamey carroll (finally), jon garland, mike macdougal, juan uribe and not one, but two jerry sands cards.  sadly, no dioner navarro which will make my upcoming double dipper post difficult. 

there should also be matt kemp, clayton kershaw and andre ethier all-star cards.  i doubt there will be any dodger highlight cards, unless kemp gets to 30-30 here pretty quick.  looking forward to the jim thome 600 home run card though.

i should probably show a card of some sort here, so here's juan uribe's 2011 topps dodger team set card
from which i hope his 2011 topps update card differs substantially.  starting with the jersey number.
2011 topps update is the only thing i really have to look forward to in october this year, unfortunately.

Is it just me or has Topps cards looked the same for the last decade or so?
