DATA: 2009 Bowman Gold
PING: If you haven’t heard, JV went on the DL today. Total bummer. It seems that this inner ear infection (or, whatever it is) just won’t go away. From what I’ve heard about those things, it takes a while to get it out of your system and it can make anything athletic a challenge real quick. Obviously, let’s hope that Joey can get over this soon and return to the team. I’m sure that’s what he wants more than anything.
So, here we have a 2009 Bowman Gold card of Mr. Votto. Pretty sweet photo of him, isn’t it. With all the 2009 releases coming, it’s fun to see some new photography on his cards. Overall, these Bowman cards are a bit cheesy – the little baseballs containing the numbers are a bit to cliche for my taste. Nice choice of font though – clean and legible with a little hint of style in the serif.
