Roll Out the Heritage

As I start to accumulate more and more cards from the 2009 Topps Heritage set, I'm starting to have a difficult time picturing how an all-horizontal card set will look in a binder typically set up for portrait-oriented cards. I recently got a surprise pack of 2008 and 2009 Heritage cards from Ed of Roll Out the Barrel to knock off some more wants from the old want lists.

I like this card a lot. Really, there's nothing to dislike about Carl Crawford. He's been around for quite awhile, is an excellent player, and doesn't seem to be prepared at all for the photo on the right.

This card is just terrible looking. Not only are the "master" and "mentor" photoshopped together, but Lincecum's photo was either taken years ago when he didn't have a waterfall flowing out of the back of his cap or they just decided to go all out and crop out his hair.

Is Washburn traded yet? Does it matter? As long as he isn't dealt to the NL Central, I don't really care. I can't wait for tonight to pass so I don't have to hear about him or Roy Halladay again for the rest of the season.

This picture was probably colorized, but it looks great nonetheless.

Thanks again to Ed, who hopefully has received my package by now. I'm always up for a trade, especially for Heritage cards, so feel free to drop me one of those electronic mail correspondences if you're interested.
