Hi, I'm Jim a photographer for the Topps Company. I'm here to take your picture for the 2005 set.
Got some ID?

No, no I mean right here. This is a good spot.
Yeah, it'll be great. This is a great spot. I mean I know that you're a ten year veteran and all..

No, no this is great right here, it says "I'm a ballplayer, I dont need grass and a field, I'm an individual, a Super-Star!" Besides, I'm an official Topps photographer, I know what I'm doing.
