Great Moments in Baseball Cards: Daniel Hudson edition

Mar 25, 2013, 2:02 PM EDT

The Dbacks’ Daniel Hudson is not that impressed with his Topps Heritage baseball card this year:

I can see how that might bug him a bit. But really, it’s not like it’s a bad picture. Maybe I’m crazy but some of the (few) great pictures taken of me were taken under dubious/depressing/weird circumstances, so …

Eh, no. This is pretty bad. Dude blew is arm out.

    Who in their right mind could honestly look at all the pictures to choose from and say, “you know, this one where he blew out his elbow looks really good! Go with it.”??? Apparently someone at Topps…mind is blown.

    He should see the card they’re using for Jordany Valdespin.

      Hilarious! Just giving this comment a thumbs up would not do it justice.

      You almost made choke on my lunch. Well done indeed.

    Since Topps got the exclusive rights to baseball cards and lost competition from Upper Deck, their quality control has gone down the toilet. For example, there are multiple recent examples of them airbrushing incorrect uniforms onto players.

    Topps doesn’t believe in whitewashing history. Unless Pete Rose is involved.

    That picture looks awesome. If you don’t know it was cropped from when he blew out his arm, it looks to me like something out of the 1970 Topps set. Very old school. Of course, knowing what the entire picture was ruins it.

    I’d be willing to wager that the person choosing the picture is choosing from a set that has already been edited and has no knowledge of the context.

    When Huddys health is back with the arm he will make the second pitcher in the rotation again and be just fine.

    I wouldn’t have known until Hudson tweeted it. It’s not as if he’s rolling around on the ground like Dave Dravecky.
