Without it, my brain would be fried and my blog would have half the posts these past few weeks. His challenge provides a topic for me to write about when I'm stressed out and overwhelmed.
Thank goodness for Hideo Nomo.
Masanori Murakami might have opened the door for Japanese baseball players to play in the MLB, but Nomo rushed through it, led a generation of players from across the Pacific, and won the hearts of millions of fans.
Thank goodness for Topps.
2004 Topps #92
I've always been a Topps guy. Sure I miss Upper Deck and would be the first person to admit that I miss them terribly. But when push comes to shove, Topps will always be my favorite card company.
Their 2004 design made it into my Top 10 Topps designs and this card is easily my favorite in the set. The photo they chose is exactly what I want to see on a baseball card. Awesome action. Excellent cropping. Blurred baseball fans. Perfection.
That's why I picked it as my Day 14 representative in Tony's Challenge.
