So, airbrushing has come a long way from the days of 1986 Topps. The brutal (and I know, already well documented) part is that I can’t believe nobody at Topps thought to check to see if Halladay was going to actually wear 32 with Philadelphia. I guess Steve Carlton had a pretty decent career, guess that’s why 32 didn’t end up being available. I suppose his 329 career wins flew under Topps’ radar.
At least they used a different photo for Topps Update.
