So this is another one of them there photo variations from Update Series that we all go bananas for.  Well, at least I do.  For the right price.

After scouring eBay for a while, I came upon one that was around five bucks shipped.  Considering Cespedes was a half-year rental and probably won't have too many more (if any) cards as a Met, I knew I had to track this one done eventually and add it to my Mets count.

It's a pretty nice card; I'm always down for batting practice photos.  Kinda makes me wish Topps would mix in more of these type of images into the regular set.  You know, like it used to be.  I don't think the masses will scream and howl if every base card photo doesn't capture a player swinging, pitching, diving or making a gnarled-up face.

I'm still working on the Syndergaard variation from the same set, but that one won't come so easy.  I haven't found one cheaper than 10 bucks (plus shipping).
