Javy Lopez, 2005 Topps Gallery #87

Oh, so that's what Javy Lopez would look like if he were painted by Claude Monet. At least that's the look that Topps was trying to achieve; in all honesty, it bears a closer resemblance to the work of LeRoy Neiman. That's what you get when you rely on PhotoShop filters instead of, you know, an actual artist.

If Monet had painted it, he'd be floating on lily pads. Then again, it is Javy Lopez, he'd be sinking.

True...the back of the card actually mentions his 30 pound weight loss in the 2003 offseason!

That's classic. Even as a catcher, he ate himself out of the league.
