2009 Topps #431 - Ramon Hernandez

I've always had a soft spot for catchers. Probably because I was one. Ok, definitely because I was one. It was a lot of fun putting on this peculiar armor to go into some strange battle of bats, leather, and hide. All the other wusses on the field were just prancing around in their polyester pants while I was ready for WAR, dammit. Of course they weren't fainting from heat exhaustion, so I guess there's that. This card here is quite excellent. Definitely stands out in the series. To a non sports person this mask must be very confusing. Hernandez does not look like a man to be trifled with here. No catchers do.
