2009 Topps #586: Nelson Cruz, OF, Texas Rangers

I was reorganizing portions of my more modern sets and came across this cool-looking card.  I had initially intended to put a few of them together and come up with a theme, but I guess I just got impatient.  Nelson Cruz is performing very well for the Seattle Mariners this year although the team as a whole is still trying to dig themselves out of one.  To date, Cruz is 2nd place in the Majors in HR's with a total of 42.  He trails former teammate Chris Davis by only 1 HR, but Cruz has a much better Batting Average and OPS with fewer strikeouts.  There's a lot of good photography in the 2009 Topps set.
