Brady Anderson, 1992 Baseball Cards Magazine #70
For an oddball card that was cut out of a glossy cardboard magazine insert, this is a nice-looking card. The color choices in the photo complement the usually-blah 1970 Topps design that this card borrows. The picture itself is a somewhat unconventional choice, a zoomed chest-and-above shot of Brady Anderson in profile as he lifts a practice bat behind his head. The photographer was even savvy enough to shoot Brady from his left side, away from the ear flap. You wouldn't want those showcase sideburns to be covered up.
I can remember playing with baseball cards as a toddler, but I actually started collecting them when I was ten. Now I'm an adult looking for an outlet to talk about my hobby without receiving blank stares in return. You can contact me thusly.
