2005 Topps Rookie Cup #45 Orange

Card Review: 9.7  I pretty much love everything about this 2005 Topps set, and also more or less hate everything about it.  It's added a ton of fresh excitement as far as tracking down new Wallach cards for the first time in over a decade, but also created a major annoyances at the extreme rarity of a few of the variations.  That said, I'm glad it exists.  These numbered cards also give a tangible goal and glimmer of hope to literally "collecting them all."

 These orange variants were numbered individually out of 399.  In person they look very "orange," but the scan came out very red.  But I assure you, it's very orange.  Like Syracuse Orangemen uniform orange.  But just like they look red on tv sometimes when playing at Georgetown or St. John's or some hillybilly ACC school now, these cards look red in the scans.

Number of this card in my collection: 1
