Card Spotlight: 9-19-08

1988 Donruss Baseball's Best #123 - Dave LaPoint

Why on Earth would this be the card spotlight this week? Well, there are four reasons for this decision.

1. Look at that smile. It looks like Mark Buehrle, if you squint really hard. That's just a great smile!

2. The poppy and bright (not Poppy Z. Brite) alternative color scheme of this 1988 Donruss release. It's a refreshing change of pace from the drab blue.

3. This photo is what the 1988 Topps card should have been. Not the airbrushed massacre that it turned out to be. This photo is the real McCoy.

4. I received this card in a trade yesterday from Eric. So, the convenience factor is certainly there.

Sorry for the Beckett default image. I can't access my scanner right now. This was the only image I could find.
