Another Day, Another Bullshit Gimmick.

The Johan Santana card in this picture is card #661 in the 2008 Topps baseball set. (And to think, you actually thought there were only 660 cards in the Topps set?) According to the eBay auction -- the only one of this card offered so far -- card #661 "commemorates" the "no-hitter" that Johan Santana "pitched" for the Mets on September 28, 2008.

Yes, it says September 28, 2008.

(Today's date is June 2, 2008.)

Let the Topps hatred commence in 3, 2, 1...

Checking the Braves' schedule to see who they play on 9/28.......


Looks Like Johan knocks the Marlins out of contention the last day of the season while Smoltz closes out the Astros for his 40th save of the season to give the Bravos the division.

Mario's gonna be pissed.

I have to wonder if anyone at Topps is listening.... Then again they would probably be wearing a T-shirt under the button down power blue shirt that reads... I take bad reviews all the way to the bank.
