hey! die cut cards are for wimps, right? why not use a frickin' laser!?!?! that's what topps was thinking in 1996, and the result was…meh.
here's a hideo nomo card
which is pretty much the same as ismael valdes' card
here are two more dodger cards from the set - raul mondesi
credit topps with trying something new, i guess, and definitely credit them for matching photos to the laser cutouts, but at the same time understand that there certainly was no clamor for a 1997 topps laser release.
