My First Matt Kemp Braves' Card

A customer brought back most of a box of 2017 Topps Series 1 he purchased from us and told me to do whatever I wanted with the box of base cards. I've given half of the box away already to kids but I couldn't resist asking my boss if he'd let me keep one card. He obliged and I now have my first card of Matt Kemp as a Brave.

I didn't realize until scanning it in that it's a League Leaders card so I suppose there will be another Kemp to add to the collection once Series 2 drops later this year. A classic shot of Matty is much appreciated, and I do like the colorful backs (a little Dodger Blue, perhaps....).

I'm okay with the design of the front. Not in love with it, but it could be worse. I always, always, always prefer full-bleed photography though.
