Now, I know it’s just a base card, but this card is gorgeous to me! Doesn’t hurt that it’s my favorite baseball player, either.
The card just looks elegant. The holofoil border really pops against the darker background. Soto is well-framed in the layout of the card. I like that his hands and the top of his helmet extend out over the border, giving a sense of depth to the picture. Also, that is my personal favorite Nationals uniform variation – the blue jersey with the Stars and Stripes “W.” Like I said, Soto is my favorite baseball player, too, and this image really captures the excitement (and a little goofiness) that he brings to the game. It may just be a base card, but this one is going on display!
