Brett Lawrie card #38 2013 Topps Archives #186

  • The only way that you can tell that it's a different photo from the 2013 Topps base set is that he's wearing his road greys on this card, whereas on the flagship he's in the home whites.  Otherwise, it's virtually the same fielding pose.
  • Why do guys wearing batting gloves underneath their leather?   Never really made any sense to me.  Can't be for protection, can it?
  • Bio on the back:  "Brett topped the Blue Jays with a .319 batting average against left handed pitching.  He also relished raking at the Rogers Centre (Skydome), where he swatted .302."  What happened to words such as hitting or batting in the 2nd sentence?  Did they become passe?
