there is nothing to not like about this card

i suppose if you were the nitpicking type, you might say that this 2005 topps all-time fan favorites card of rodney cline carew 
might be better featured on, say, the 1973 topps design.

i might even grant you that point.  i would guess that this photo dates from the late 1960's/early 1970's - maybe even from the 1969 alcs that saw the twins lose to the orioles in three games.  still, that doesn't mean that the card is less likable.

it's got the double play turn, and it's got a hall of famer turning two over another hall of famer (brooks robinson).

that is plenty for me.  i would expect this card to do well in the 'greatest double play of all-time' tournament that will take place someday.
