Airbrushed Fridays: 2015 Topps #626


The trade deadline is upon us.

Who is he? Hanley Ramirez was once upon a time a top prospect in the Boston Red Sox system. Very early in his career, he was dealt to the Marlins where he'd become a three-time All-Star shortstop. A few trade deadlines ago, he found himself on the Dodgers where he would reignite his flagging career.


How did he get here? Coming full circle, Boston signed the guy who took his first two MLB at-bats in a Red Sox uniform and moved him to the outfield as he'd never been a strong defender in the infield. It hasn't exactly gone swimmingly for Ramirez in Beantown, but then again, not much has at Fenway this season.

Repeat offender? No

Other versions of this card: None, but here's the original:


Airbrushed Score: 4

Comments: This is a pretty competent Photoshop job, but they were able to obscure a lot of the logos.
