|2009 Topps CBR-MC Miguel Cabrera|
Obviously, the design holds true to the "Career Best" theme and looks very similar to the other ones. Cabrera, while still young, certainly warrants a "Career Best" card--this guy is a stud. I couldn't be happier that he is locked up as a Tiger for years to come, as I think that he is emerging as the second best 1st baseman in the game, behind only the incomparable Albert Pujols. For some reason though, whether it is Granderson's popularity, the fact that he came over with Dontrelle Willis, the fact the he seems relatively quiet--I'm not sure what--he does not seem to have a major following among Tigers fans. If they were still running the "Who's Your Tiger?" campaign, he would fall somewhere down the line, behind guys like Granderson, Inge and Verlander. That's a shame. At some point, people are going to realize that Cabrera is something special, and I think that will be sooner rather than later.
