Airbrushed Fridays: 2015 Topps #537

Is it just me, or is this year's Series Two the biggest Photoshopped set ever?

Who is he? Steven Souza is a speedy outfielder who was a 3rd round pick of the Nationals back when they were still getting used to not being in Canada. He's speedy and rangy, but not quite a master of both, leaving him in a category shared by many big league outfielders who are relatively green. Of recent note, he turned a bunt into a Little League style home run a few weeks back.

How did he get here? During the Great Padres Dealings of Late 2014, Souza was included as part of a 3-team swap that involved something like a dozen players, finding himself on the Rays roster for the current season.

Repeat offender? No

Other versions of this card: None, but here's the source image...

Airbrushed Score: 5

Comments: It could be worse. This is on the low end of the atrocity spectrum for 2015 Topps Series Two. There are some real doozies in this set.
