2009 Topps Gold

Much has been written about the improved photography that Topps has shown with this year’s base Series 1 and 2 offerings.  It seems as though the graphic designers realized that they could crop photos to focus on the players, rather than on the outfield grass.  I’m in favour of this policy change, it makes base Topps a pretty interesting pack to bust.

Hamilton’s base card in this set is no exception.  Its an awesome fielding shot.  It focuses completely on the player in question, and it is a bit of a non-traditional pose for the card as well.  This is the gold parallel /2009, I picked it up out of a seller’s eBay store when I was purchasing a small stack of other Hamiltons.
