Amazing Airbrushing – 1986 Topps Traded, Tom Seaver

1986 Topps Traded - Tom Seaver

More Topps Traded airbrushing amazingness from the 1980’s, this time featuring Tom Seaver, who pitched in a total of 16 games for Boston in 1986 before calling it a career.

It’s disappointing to see such an all-time great wearing such a horribly airbrushed Red Sox hat, or any kind of Red Sox hat, for that matter.  It’s like seeing Gretzky in a Blues jersey, Jordan playing for the Wizards, Reggie Jackson (in his prime, no less) suiting up for Baltimore, or that time Steve Carlton got his 4,000th strikeout during a six-game stint with the San Francisco Giants.  It just doesn’t seem right.  The airbrushing only makes it worse.  Thanks, Topps.
