I'll occasionally search for cards of my main three guys when a new product hits the market. I generally have a good idea of what will pop up, but a recent eBay search for 2012 Allen & Ginter Russell Martin cards revealed a fairly shocking inclusion in the product.
Russ hasn't been a Dodger for two years. Two. Years. Yet here he is, included in the relic portion of 2012 Ginter as a Dodger. The gray swatch is vague, so perhaps it is a Dodgers' road uniform relic (Martin is pictured in home whites, of course) and not a Yankees' swatch. Topps surely specified on the back of the card, as they've always been so clear with this sort of thing.
So yeah. "Star Catcher of the Los Angeles Dodgers." Don't get me wrong, I'm happy to add another Russ "Dodgers" card to my collection - especially a Ginter one - as I thought last year would end those L.A. cards, but damn if this isn't still confusing as can be. Russ' base card, mini, and printing plates in the set picture him as a Yankee, so Topps has really thrown me a curveball here.
