Card #134: 2004 Topps Total #522
TEAM: Chicago White Sox
Once again, I had to purchase a hobby box of Topps Total in 2004. This is still at a time when I was not focusing on my Alomar collection, but was adding cards from packs. This is still one of my all-time favorite Alomar photos. This is the precursor to a play at the plate with Alomar preparing to catch the ball. The runner is not in the shot, but the ball is and Alomar is bracing for impact. It also features the extremely cool hockey-style mask.
