Sadly, there are not many pictures to choose from, so I'll just use this one as an example (an awesome shot, but not of a Tiger). However, there MUST be some pictures of either the Pirates or Tigers in their 1909 throwbacks from yesterday. Personally, I'd like a shot of Andrew McCutchen, who looked like totally badass in his--almost like a Star Wars style guard or something. I certainly wouldn't object to a shot of Granderson, of course, but when you can't get the ball out of the infield, it isn't particularly deserving of commemoration.
Topps, Upper Deck or whoever--get me some 2010 baseball cards with these throwbacks. Or even better *PRODUCT IDEA ALERT* 2010 Allen & Ginter should be the current players ALL pictured in throwbacks, preferably in some sort of "posed action shot." That would be killer.
