|2012 Topps Update Wal-Mart #US154|
I remember a few people around the blogging community weren't thrilled that Stanton made the 2012 Update series, considering his inclusion was based solely on the first-name switcheroo from 'Mike' to 'Giancarlo'. Rather than dwell on that, I'd rather focus on the caliber of the photo. Sure, Topps has really inundated us with celebratory photos the past four or five years, but this one stands out to me more than most. It's a great card, and it looks ever better as a blue parallel, I think.
