Another base card today, but an interesting looking one at least. I really like the looks of Goudey this year. The ‘sketch’ of Hamilton is really sharp. It also makes him look very young. More like his early Bowman cards than his 2007 ‘RC’ logo cards.
The back of this card talks about Hamilton hitting a 430 ft home run against the Jays earlier this year. Sounds about right, as far as the Jays went early this season. The little ‘Derek Jeter says’ on the front of the card is kind of weird. I think I’d like it better if they had written the card backs like he was actually saying something. I realize Jeter probably has better things to do than write blurbs for card backs, though. I hear that being a ballplayer keeps one kind of busy.
