Card #130: 2003 Topps #595

YEAR: 2003
BRAND: Topps
SET: Topps
TEAM: Chicago White Sox

One thing that has been disappointing to me over the years has been the fact that card companies have been updating players to reflect their new teams right away.  This has lead to difficulties in finding cards of players with the Red Sox who were acquired late in a season and joined new teams for the next season.  It also effected my Alomar collection.  Alomar has very few cards with the Colorado Rockies after spending the second half of the 2002 season with the team.  This is Alomar's base card from the Topps set which skipped his stint with the Rockies and updated him with the White Sox, his new team for the 2003 season.
