Night Owl Confuses Me
Well, it's more like Topps confuses me.
All of these cards came from the one, the only, Mr. Night Owl in two packages -- one last summer, and one recent one. He included the above monstrosity. This flips the traditional traded-player display of "new logo/old uniform" on its head, by showing James Shields in his new uniform (KC), but with his old logo (TB). Chalk this one up to a mistake -- whoever was maintaining the player database at Topps never updated it with the correct logo.
Night Owl sent a bunch of other good stuff, too.
a #/99 double-jersey card of Raul (Adalberto) Mondesi. This will definitely be Mondesi's year to show what he can do in the big leagues. He's got to start hitting better if he is going to stick around.
Thank you, Night Owl -- all of these were needed and are very much appreciated!
