matt kemp's got his average up to .283 for the season, and in the last two weeks, he's hitting .391 with 6 homers and 13 rbi plus two stolen bases. still, that's not necessarily 2011 matt kemp or even 2012 matt kemp, but it's better than 2013 matt kemp. i am hopeful that the injuries are healed and the confidence is back, and that don mattingly doesn't overthink his four outfielder situation and just lets kemp play. meanwhile, this is kemp's 1972 topps basketball design insert from 2013 topps archives
featuring the brooklyn dodger helmet and the la dodger sleeve patch. must have been a photo from an april 15 game. i've been meaning to show that card for about a year now, but i guess i've been waiting for signs of life from the dodger (former) center fielder.
let's take a trip back in time and visit some card backs. this one is from 2005 bowman
here's the front of the 2005 bowman card
here's another back, this one from 2005 topps total
here's the front of that card, with kemp sharing space with heath totten
here's one more kemp - this one from 2012 topps heritage featuring the league rbi leaders from 1963 and 2011
