in 2011, it was dee gordon. in 2012, adam kennedy. last year, nick punto's topps update card was my favorite. this year, i am getting a kick out of justin turner's card.
that's some good double play turning right there from one of the best free agent signings of last offseason (the best after phil hughes and nelson cruz? or better, since he signed as a minor league free agent?). oh, there are better cards in update - kurt suzuki has a couple, and i do like pat neshek's all-star card, too - but if there were a card i would chase a rainbow of this year, it's turner's.
after finding only chone figgins and scott vanslyke cards in the update stuff i bought, i went ahead and ordered (most of) the other dodger base cards from sportlots. have a look.
1978 topps rick monday card where mo seems to be wiping mustard off of his face.
i did pick up a couple of turner parallels - gold
here's kershaw's red hot foil parallel
meanwhile, justin turner parallels and paul maholm have taken over the nefarious nine (see list at right on the web version of the blog). please, help a blogger out!
