Polar Bear In A Snow Storm

Mark Trumbo is a big dude. 
 A big white dude.  
Like a big white polar bear.

So, when all of us went to Sears when we were kids for the annual family portrait, did they ever put you in front  of a white background?  No. Never.  It was always blue or some sort of forest scene right?  (Although common sense says that in front of a white backgound you would stand out much better...unless you were all dressed in white)  So why then would Panini put a big white polar bear guy, in a white uniform, in front of a white background?

Can you spot the Trumbo?

It doesn't help that Panini didn't have MLB licensing so they had to airbrush out the colorful team logos on the uniform.

Let's zoom in and see if we can find Mark.

I see him!

OK so I exaggerated a little but you get the idea.

I'm glad that Topps doesn't ever do lame senseless stuff like that.
