PWE from Night Owl

A short post about a PWE from Greg/Night Owl. Thanks to his previous mailing I added Shawn Green’s Topps run to my Stanford search list. This apparently inspired Greg to go through his extra Greens and see if he had any of the Topps run since the first mailing had none.

Not a huge success as he was only able to find the 2005 card but I’ll take it. Will make a nice pair with the 2005 Opening Day that’s already in the binder. The more I look at the 2005 design the more I like it. It’s never going to be a favorite but it’s a basic competent design* with a nice splash of team color on the borders.

*My biggest problem are the cards which replace the player name with DRAFT PICK or PROSPECT without changing enough of the rest of the design.

Greg also included this 2021 Archives Will Clark which I’m sure he was thrilled to get out of his house. Since Clark’s last season was 2001 this almost works as a career capper card. Nice to see him in a Giants uniform though. The Cardinals one looks so wrong. I’m not sure how Topps chooses which vintage logo to use for these though since the 1980s primary logo that shows up on all the 1980s cards makes a lot more sense than the cap logo which Topps selected.

Anyway. I’m happy to slot in another Green card into the Stanford album and I’m happy to add some Archives since I don’t buy that product. Thanks Greg!
