So, Topps is coming out with a series of baseball cards that feature some pretty amazing pieces of history. Described here: “Inserted into packs of Topps Tier One will be 100 one-of-a-kind Bat Knob cards from the some of the most legendary names to ever step on the diamond. With stars such as Ty Cobb, Hank Aaron, Joe DiMaggio and Babe Ruth highlighting the subject list, these amazing 1-of-1 cards will be the centerpiece of many collections.”

Legendary indeed… however there are some other names that might be considered a tiny bit less legendary. Names not mentioned in the initial bio include: Dustin Ackley, Freddie Freeman, Buster Posey, Andrew McCutchen, Carlos Lee,¬†Starlin Castro and Shin-Soo Choo. Not that they can’t someday become legendary, but c’mon. Sad thing is this… I can totally see a couple of Jr. High kids riding their bikes to the card shop, each grabbing a pack of these and, miraculously, both getting a 1-of-1 bat knob card. “Dude, I got one! I got Freddie Freeman!! Yesssss.” “Woah! I got one too… wait, what the…? I got some dude named, um, Dih-mag-ee-oh? Who’s that? Trade you straight up for Freeman... and I’ll buy you a slurpee on the way home.” “Nice try Timmy, no way.

    There has to be some sort of weight differential with an actual slice of wood in the pack right?
