As I tweeted earlier today, Topps Trading Cards has already released a mock version of Cam Newton’s Rookie Card. Before you begin to wonder when he had time to pose and get all sweaty and determined looking, take a look under the ball. Do you see it? The orange wrist band? Yep, Photoshop.
Was this a mistake or was this one last Easter egg from Topps to Auburn fans? I’ll say mistake. Oh well, other than that it’s a pretty dang good ‘shop job. Yeah, that’s what we call it in the biz.
I’m going to be honest. The Panther uniform doesn’t look that bad on him. What does? I still think they need to upgrade from the mid-90’s color scheme and logo, though. Anyway, just thought you might want to see this.By the way, what exactly is a “Rookie Patch”? Is that kinda like a soul patch?
