I’m a nerd. I collect Joey Votto baseball cards. Why not? While I’m not a super collector by any means (that’s dropping big bucks on cards) I have a fair share and enjoy tracking down something I haven’t seen before.
That said, was this card ever produced by Topps? I’ve seen it on a Topps banner advertising Reds baseball cards at GABP. There are a few other cards pictured on the banner of other players, and those cards do exist. Votto’s 2009 Topps card uses a different photo. See right.
If I were to bet, I’d say no, it doesn’t exist. But, throwing the question out there couldn’t hurt, right?
Oh, while we’re talking about Joey, go vote for him in MLB’s 5 Tool Player of the Year thingy.
